“Midnight Blue” is a song by American singer and songwriter Melissa Manchester, written by herself alongside Carole Bayer Sager and produced by Vini Poncia with an executive production by Richard Perry. It was released in April 1975 as the first single from Manchester’s third studio album, Melissa (1975).
The song was described by Billboard magazine as “a classically elegant quiet ballad about a pair of longtime lovers putting aside their current aggravations until the dawn in order to try making it one more time in memory of all their old times together”.
In the United States, the single became her first top ten entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number six. Additionally, it peaked at number one on the Adult Contemporary chart.
