As well as the points you wisely made, about the lack of external distraction that night time offers, the atmosphere of a track can suit the night
much better than it does the day time.
For example, listening to Emperor albums while sat in the middle of a field on a moonlit night, with streaky clouds moving across the face of the
moon, a beer in one hand, and with ones friends around one, is a totally different experience than listening to the same album with the sun shining,
birds singing, as you wait for a bus.
It's about place, about moment. There are other songs which are perfect, and I mean absolutely perfect for listening to during a thunderstorm. Slayer
- Raining Blood is a track which is absolutely perfect accompaniment to any lightning show, or even a heavy downpour of rain. Just as there are tracks
which are outstanding when listened to on a humid, sticky late afternoon at the beach, there are tunes which are perfect for the midnight hour, and it
does not matter what your musical tastes are, because the chances are that there will be a track by your favourite artist, which suits the weather,
the time of day, the time of the year, better than others.
This is because the writing process for real musicians and recording artistes, involves primal influences like weather, seasons, and elemental things
of that nature. Music has always been made to put a person in a particular place, or a particular mood, associated with a certain situation. Four
Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi is a perfect example of this.
