Not me. I think it’s a great song, though don’t better by Smith.

Passionate lyrics, power, sensuality, great melody...not sure what there isn't to like about this fabulous song. Each to their own though.

I also think Patti Smith's version is better than Bruce's.

i love it

either the 78 version - which i just adore

or the modern take with Nils

Love Nils 

always prefer Bruce's words but also enjoy it when he sings it with Patti Smith

love her take on it also

but love the Bruce versions the best 

i have a bootleg dvd here somewhere of rather dubious quality from the HT/LT tour and its a real highlight

I absolutely love this song.  Everything about it.  One of the last times I saw Bruce, that was one of the few songs I filmed.

I only love the 1978 live versions of this song. The album versions are poor and lack intensity in my opinion.

I love Bruce's Because the Night (love Patti's as well) … and I love Seeds, too. Brilliant songs.

It’s one of my favorite songs ever. The live versions at least, the studio version on The Promise is horrendous.

Passaic 19/09/78. That killer Bruce guitar solo. 
studio version, rubbish. The song was made for the live stage.

Whatever floats your boat, but to not recognise this as a classic song is beyond me.

Because The Night is a fantastic song (but if you don't like it, OK; each to his/her own, etc.).

Seems like it was never completed in the studio in 1977 and 1978 -as the circulating versions on Darkness outtakes bootlegs are raw versions which sound unfinished-; and maybe it should have stayed that way, instead of recording a new studio version for The Promise album with 2010 vocals.

Patti's Smith studio version is great too. It is because of Because The Night I discovered Patti Smith, and Horses -still one of my favourite albums of all time- and became also a Patti Smith fan.

I really hope you mean the song in the thread title in your 2nd sentence and not the one in your 1st sentence.
