Scorpions singles chronology

"Big City Nights" is a song by German hard rock band Scorpions. The song was released as the sixth track of their 1984 album Love at First Sting. Like many Scorpions songs, "Big City Nights" was composed by band members Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine. The song was also released as the third single from the album in 1984, with the B-side being "Bad Boys Running Wild". The guitar solo is performed by Rudolf Schenker.

The band created a music video for the song. Both the video and the track itself celebrate the 'fast-riding-and-leather' biker subculture that had been adopted by numerous metalheads worldwide.

Other versions

An orchestral version of the song was recorded by the band for the 2000s orchestral album Moment of Glory that features vocals split with Ray Wilson of Genesis.

They also re-recorded it in 2011 for the Japanese edition of Comeblack.

Covers

The song was covered on the Fozzy album Happenstance.
