In the Shadows is a 1977 rock song by British band The Stranglers, produced by Martin Rushent. The distinctive darkly-themed tongue-in-cheek song features a doctored deep “barracuda bass” guitar line and bleepy synth accompaniment, and first appeared as the ‘B’ side to the September 1977 single No More Heroes.

The track proved popular enough to be subsequently included on their May 1978 album Black and White. And in 1979, the song was included on as a live track on the band’s Don’t Bring Harry EP.

Lyrics:

When you’re walking on the streets at night
You turn around and die of fright
What’s that in the shadows?
What’s that in the shadows?

Walking down the streets at night
Turn around and you can die of fright
Walking on the streets at night
Turn around and die of fright
What’s that in the shadows?
What’s that in the shadows?

Is it a dog?
Is it a cat?
Is it a dog?
What do you think of that?
When you’re walking on the streets at night
Turn around and die of fright
What’s that in the shadows?
What’s that in the shadows?

Is it a dog?
Is it a cat?
Is it a dog?
What do you think of that?
When you’re walking on the streets at night
Moving, shiny, bright

Walking on the night
When you’re walking on the streets at night
Look around you
Look around you

When you’re walking on the streets at night
When you turn around and die of fright

Who’s there in the shadows?

What’s that in the shadows?
What’s that in the shadows?
Look around you
