It was released as the band’s 2nd single in December 1985 with “Lost In Your Light…” on the B-side.

“Touch In The Night” was a perfect example of one of the prevailing styles of music of the time, synth-pop and more specifically, euro-disco (some would say italo-disco). In any case, a great international hit. It’s definitely a classic of synth-pop.

It peaked at #15 in Germany and #16 in Switzerland. The song was featured on Silent Circle’s 1986 debut album “No.1” alongside another 10 songs. It’s the most famous song of the group and that brought them to international attention and success.
