The song's been haunting me lately though nothing so dramatic happens at midnight in my humdrum life :).
In fact, it's close to midnight right about now, and I'm baking bread. Started making the dough fairly late, so I'm stuck waiting for the dough to rise. The other option was to put the dough in the fridge so it rises slowly, and then bake it early in the morning. Not an option at all, if you ask me.
