Musical Interlude: Into The Night (1980)

Benny Mardones only had 1 big hit, and it was a hit twice over.

"Into the Night", a tale of young, perhaps forbidden, love, debuted in the summer of 1980, and peaked at #11. 9 years later, after DJ Scott Shannon, then based in LA, added the song to his playlist, "Night" charted anew, but only got as far as #20. Co-author Robert Tepper would end up a 1-hit wonder himself, scoring with "No Easy Way Out" from "Rocky IV" in between releases of "Night".
