One of Van Morrison's most popular songs, "Wild Night" describes the thrill of a night on the town: getting dressed up, watching the girls, feeling the wind at your feet. It's one of his few songs with mass appeal, and proof that he could write a terrific Pop song whenever he desired. Ted Templeman, who would later produce another Van (Halen), produced the Tupelo Honey album with Morrison. Musicians to perform on this track include Ronnie Montrose on electric guitar, John McFee on pedal steel guitar, Jack Schroer on saxophone and Luis Gasca on trumpet. John Mellencamp and Meshell Ndegeocello teamed up to release a new version of this song in 1994 which was a huge hit, going to in America. This was an interesting combination: Mellancamp was disenchanted with the music industry and Ndegeocello was just entering it - her first album came out in 1993.

And all the girls walk by Dressed up for each other And the boys do the boogie-woogie On the corner of the street And the people passin by Just stare in wild wonder And the inside juke-box Roars out just like thunder.
