Night Music: Wilson Pickett, “The Midnight Hour”

Holy cow, it’s the midnight hour, and Wilson Pickett and Steve Cropper wrote a song about it!

Pickett may have my favorite voice in all of soul, a fantastic blend of grit and croon, and The Midnight Hour was his first big hit. This track is an indelible pleasure, even when you consider the delights that came later.
