Description
"Somewhere in the Night" is a ballad written by Richard Kerr and lyricist Will Jennings which was a US Top 40 hit for both Helen Reddy and Barry Manilow.
The first song composed by Kerr and Jennings as a team, "Somewhere in the Night" appeared on four 1975 album releases: You Are a Song by Batdorf & Rodney and Rising Sun by Yvonne Elliman both released in June 1975, No Way to Treat a Lady by Helen Reddy released July 1975 and Kim Carnes’ November 1975 eponymous album release. The Yvonne Elliman version was released as a single in August 1975 which month also saw the release of a "Somewhere in the Night" single recorded by the song’s co-writer Richard Kerr: Kerr’s version would have its UK release in January 1976 when it also served as the title cut of an album release by Kerr. However "Somewhere in the Night" did not become a chart item until the Batdorf & Rodney version was issued as a single in October 1975 to reach #69 on the Hot 100 in Billboard.

The qualified success of the Batdorf & Rodney version did not preclude the December 1975 release of Helen Reddy’s version of "Somewhere in the Night" as the followup single to her hit "Ain’t No Way to Treat a Lady". Unique as a third single released from a Helen Reddy album - the first single from the No Way to Treat a Lady album: "Bluebird", had had an abbreviated release - "Somewhere in the Night" peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1976: Reddy would have one subsequent single reach the Top 20 that being "You’re My World" in 1977. "Somewhere in the Night" would also reach #27 in New Zealand in February 1976, affording Reddy her final hit in that territory..

Barry Manilow, whose breakout hit "Mandy" had been written by Richard Kerr and who had later reached #1 with the Richard Kerr/ Will Jennings composition "Looks Like We Made It", recorded "Somewhere in the Night" for his 1978 album Even Now. In July 1978 Manilow’s version of "Somewhere in the Night" was issued as the flip of Manilow’s single "Copacabana" for its release in the UK where both sides of the single received airplay although the single only reached a UK chart peak of #42. In December 1978 "Somewhere in the Night" became the fourth track from Even Now to be given single release in the US, reaching #9 on Billboard’s Hot 100: Manilow’s fo
