(K)Nights in White Satin

Yesterday I blogged a review of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. One of the things I omitted to mention (mainly because it was getting quite long enough without it) was the great soundtrack. The film was set in 1972 and the soundtrack drew on a number of the acts from that era: Elton John, The New Seekers, The Carpenters, Barry White and T Rex.

The title sequence features The Moody Blues with Nights in White Satin. This came as a bit of a surprise to me as I have spent, at a guess, 30 years thinking this was Knights in White Satin. Isn't it funny how childhood mistakes get ingrained in one's consciousness?

Anyway, here are The Moody Blues with a live version of the song:
