Even The Nights Are Better
Air Supply

Easy Piano Cover

"Even the Nights Are Better" is the song from soft rock duo Air Supply. The song was released in 1982 and spent four weeks at #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

It also reached No. 1 on the Canadian AC chart. This was Air Supply's 3rd song to reach into the Top 40 hits.

My goal, when arranging a song, is always, to create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play.

I learned "Even The Nights Are Better" by Air Supply from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols. (see example below) Lead sheets in book form are called Fake Books, aka Real Books.

I improvised the left hand part by using blocked and broken chords, and I played a simple, single-note melody line with my right hand.

Before I knew any chords, it would take me weeks, sometimes months, to learn a new song. After I started learning chords, I could learn a new song in less than an hour. I was able to do this because I no longer had to read the music notes on the bass clef.

  • Knowing chords allows me to create my own piano arrangements. Now all I read is the right hand melody on the treble clef.
