The third song in our series of the classics of 1965, that pivotal year in the history of modern music, is In the Midnight Hour by Wilson Pickett. It was composed by Pickett and Steve Cropper at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis where Martin Luther King, Jr. would later be shot in April 1968. Released on the eponymous album, the song has become a soul standard and is regarded as one of the great songs of all-time.
