Biography

For nearly ten years The Good Night was known as LA's The Cosmic Giggle. As the Giggle they recorded four full length records. In 2007 they changed their name and made a record with grammy-winning producer J.J. Blair.

Tom Jackson (vocals, guitar) and Greg McFall (bass, vocals) began playing music together in high school in San Jose. At the time, Alan Chang (keys) was a a pre-pubescent piano prodigy at a nearby junior high. Greg met Brad Ranola (drums) in college, and the band began to take shape, playing its first shows in downtown San Jose during the final months of the 20th century. They've been living in Los Angeles since 2000.

In 2004 Alan became musical director for worldwide superstar Michael Bublé. This new job provided Alan with an opportunity to tour the world several times and to cowrite some of Michael's biggest hits, including "Home". But despite his success with Michael, Alan has remained loyal to the Good Night, and has vowed to quit his "day job" when he is presented with the opportunity to be truly creative with the band he loves most.

The Good Night has over eighty original songs.

Lyrics

Steady Diet of Nothing

Written By: The Good Night

I call the shots
from up here on the throne
and if I wanna see your bones through your skin
then that’s just the kind of shape that we’re gonna putcha in
gotcha on a
STEADY DIET OF NOTHING

When we get you down
to the right weight
you’re gonna make a great sex slave
I’m gonna let you out of that cage,
and you’ll be too weak to run away

Suck on it all night long,
that feeding tube
but it’s dry as a bone,
there’s nothing coming
down the pipe for you
you know I might as well
have that stupid thing removed
we gotcha on a
STEADY DIET OF NOTHING

When we swat the flies
out of your eyes
you’ll be looking out on paradise
no more poison pumpin’ inside
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine
and you’re MINE!

GUITAR SOLO

STEADY DIET OF NOTHING.
a STEADY DIET OF NOTHING…

When we getchoo down
to the right weight,
you’re gonna make a great sex slave
I’m gonna dangle a carrot
in front of your face
I had that cage
specially made for you
with bars close together
so you can’t slip out
when you get down
to seventy five pounds
swat those flies out of your eyes,
surprise!
baby this is paradise, and the whole world is an apple pie
You’re a virgin again,
you’re a child, my friend,
When the tunnel’s hollowed out
to the other side
it’s easy to see the light
you’re perfect
you’re an angel
you’re divine

STEADY DIET OF NOTHING

Hold On Let Go

Written By: The Good Night

Hold on, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride
but you’ll rattle your bones
if you hold on too tight
let go of that boy
let go of that girl
hold onto those children,
it’s a dangerous world

Baby, if you love me, set me free
but Baby, baby please, hold onto me

You gotta hold your ground,
but go with the flow
never give up,
but you gotta learn to let go
quit kickin’ so hard,
you gotta stay afloat
you’ll drown if you don’t
let go of the boat

Baby, if you love me, set me free
but Baby, baby please, hold onto me

oh, this hateful ball and chain,
without that weight
I could float away
oh, so grateful, ball and chain,
without that weight
I’d just float awwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy

Spring

Written By: The Good Night

The world wakes up from a cold night
we squint into the morning sunlight
there's a warm wind
warmin' your skin
meltin' the ice
that your heart's been trapped in
hell yeah,
we'll stop at every flower
just to smell it
and I'll weave one or two of them
into your hair
that's all you're gonna wear
when we're up on the roof
we're all alone up there
Don't be scared no more,
the battle's over, we won.
And we're comin' around the bend
back into the sun again...

Here comes the Spring
bees a'buzz
birds are gonna sing,
it's the season of love
and everybody dreams
of big things to come
it's everybody's spring,
and everybody's sprung...

You're gettin' hot in that coccoon
it's comin' off this afternoon
I know there's a butterfly underneath
take it slow
I wanna watch you, baby,
spread your wings
Mama, if you got it you gotta flaunt it
shake it loose,
let sun shine down upon it.
Mama, if you got it you gotta flaunt it
before it's flat
or flabbier than you want it to be
aahhh
Take off your sweater
and your jacket too
I wanna see that
lower back tattoo
every hidden part of you...

CHORUS

The sun still shines at dinner time
along a higher dotted line
while TV sweeps desperate pleas
to keep us inside and in seats
till autumn leaves are turning red
in winter leaves are turning dead
in spring the leaves are born again
for summer up ahead
summer, oh yeah,
summer....
here comes the SPRING

CHORUS
