Benny Mardones Artist Bio and Lyrics
Benny Mardones was born on November 9, 1946 and became a Pop singer whose famous song became famous twice. He was best known for his single, “Into the Night,” which inadvertently charted twice in the US.
Benny Mardones’ song was first released on his debut album, Never Run, Never Hide. The album was released in 1980 and the song became a huge hit. Despite the success, his future releases didn’t have the chart topping potential. He acquired a small following, but wouldn’t release another hit.
Nine years later, Benny Mardones’ song would be rediscovered when he re-recorded it on his 1989 self-titled album. The single would reenter the charts that year.
Some time later, Mardones appeared on a Showtime tribute to Roy Orbison. He would also make an appearance at several benefits concerts.

My wife and I are looking forward to seeing Benny at the Turning Stone Casino in NY on Dec 8, 2007. As a music follower, I have always ranked "Into the night"by Benney as my top favorite song of all times. I hope to have the opportunity to meet him on our trip there. Best of luck to you Benny "we love ya in Hartford".

First single I got.
Benny Mardones was the first single I ever bought. I was 13 and spent my hard earned babysitting money on Into The Night. I am *coughs* 41 now and still listen to that song!

Never Run, Never Hide was not Benny's debut album. Thank God For Girls was. It was released in 1978.

I'd have to say the song Like A Hero In The Night, is Benny Mardones at his very best.

summer of 1986
I first saw Benny, the summer of 1986, I graduated High School & spent the summer with my Aunt in Syracuse, NY, she took me to his concert at a minor league baseball stadium, He flew into the stadium by helicopter. I fell in love with his music & his awesome voice. I have cassette tape from that summer, but would like to purchase a CD (same as the cassette)& I can not find the name of that cassette. Some songs on the cassette are Sheila C, into the night. Can you Help?

A song that makes you think what was i thinking in the 80's...tsk.tsk.tsk
Well I have loved this song for ages. Now I hear Usher remaking the song with different words of course. But a close interpretation. Just think the young kids will swear Usher created the beats/melody...blah blah blah himself.
Either way it sounds great and now I am going to go out and look for Benny CD's and try and download as well. Thanks Usher for reminding me.

Well... Some of us actually pay attention to the credits, not that it takes away the quality of the song. Either way, both versions are good but obviously as a new generation baby I'd pick Usher's re-worked version... I'm sure Benny is smiling from ear to ear coz they did a great job with the song
