It was released as the first single from their self titled album. It reached 16 in the U. Inthe track was named the 27th best hard rock Still Of The Night - Whitesnake - Rebirth Of Serpent of all time by VH1. The song was written by lead singer David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykesand proved to be one of the band's most popular songs. It combines the blues origins of the band with the more distorted, harder sound driving the song, making for a powerful hard rock song.
Both the current Whitesnake lineup and John Sykes play the song as their live encore. Inin an interview with Metal HammerCoverdale commented on the origins of the song:. One of them was a song that Ritchie Blackmore and I had been working on which was the basic premise of what would become "Still of the Night". It was totally unrecognizable, so Ritchie doesn't have anything to worry about Ha ha ha! I took it as far as I could then I gave it to Sykesy when we were in the south of Franceand he put the big guitar hero stuff on there.
John hated blues so I had to work within those parameters. I manipulated to be electric blues, but how he performed it Let Me Have It All - Material - One Down fabulous for his time and relatively unique because of the songs.
There were a lot of people doing that widdly stuff but they didn't have the quality of those songs. The video for the song, starring Coverdale's future wife Tawny Kitaenwas MTV 's most requested in its first week of release.
