"Even the Nights Are Better" is the title of a popular song from 1982 (see 1982 in music) by the Australian soft rock group Air Supply. "Even the Nights Are Better" was included on Air Supply's 1982 album Now and Forever. The song has also been covered by Anne Murray.
Released as a single in mid-1982, "Even the Nights Are Better" first charted in the United States on the Billboard adult contemporary chart, where it spent four weeks at No. 1 in July and August. This was Air Supply's third song to reach the summit on this chart. It also reached No. 1 on the Canadian AC chart. In September 1982, the song reached its peak position of No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's seventh consecutive top five hit on the US pop chart. In the United Kingdom, where the group did not enjoy the same amount of success as they did in Australia and the US, the song reached No. 44 on the UK Singles Chart.
This song is notable for exiting the Billboard Top 40 the week after it peaked, falling from No. 6 to No. 42 in September 1982. Taylor Swift has since beaten that chart phenomenon, with her song Red falling from No. 6 to No. 54 in October 2012.
