"Moscow Nights" or "Midnight in Moscow" is a Russian song, and one of those best known outside its homeland.
The song was originally created as "Leningradskie Vechera" ("Leningrad Nights") composer Vasily Solovyov-Sedoy and poet Mikhail Matusovsky in 1955, but at the request from the Soviet Ministry of Culture, the version as "Podmoskovnye Vechera"; more or less "Evenings in Moscow Oblast") was prepared, with corresponding changes to the lyrics.
The British jazz group, Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen, had a hit with the song in 1961 under the title "Midnight in Moscow", and film exists which shows them playing it at a concert in Moscow.
This version peaked at number two on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1962.
