«Nights in White Satin» is a 1967 single by The Moody Blues, written by Justin Hayward and first featured on the album Days of Future Passed.

When first released in 1967, the song reached #19 on the UK Singles Chart, a position that might have been higher were it not for its seven-plus minute length. The song was re-released in 1972 after the success of such longer-running dramatic songs as «Hey Jude» and «Layla«, and it charted at #2 in November on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Cash Box in the United States, earning a Gold certification for sales of a million copies. It also reached #1 in Canada.
