I Know That Song! The One That Happened Thanks To Gwen Stefani

Keep track of the songs all week to figure out the common theme. If you can name it Friday you can win Free Lunch at Jersey Mikes.

This band’s lead singer wrote today’s song with the same person who wrote “What Makes You Beautiful” for One Direction. It is kind of a dark song lyrically, even though the tune is quite peppy, and all about the singer being guilt-ridden for his part in a dysfunctional relationship, but still wanting to spend another night together. 

This song’s album was the first time this band really brought in outsiders to make their music go to the next level and it was all because of Gwen Stefani, whis lead singer truly admires: "She's amazing and had that fearless approach to recording...she had the courage to step outside her comfort zone. So we said, 'Why not try something completely different that could totally radicalize the idea of who we are?'

It paid off because this song was this band’s third #1 on the Hot 100 following "Makes Me Wonder" in 2007 and "Moves Like Jagger" in 2011.

FUN FACT: The song's music video was directed by Peter Berg, who is responsible for the cult TV series Friday Night Lights. In fact, one of Friday Night Lights's leading ladies, Minka Kelly, plays the lead singer’s love interest in the video, when we see her leaving him out of frustration with his flailing boxing career.

Today’s song was released as the second single by this band, from their fourth studio album, Overexposed and hit number one in 2012.

But an entirely different song, with the same title as today’s song, previously reached number one on the Hot 100. (CLIP)

Phil Collins’ song of the same name spent two weeks at #1 in 1985.

Attention up and coming bands! If you are smart, you will write and release a song called “One More Night” immediately! It’s a sure fire way to go to number one!
