Hot Night (Laura Branigan)
The Movie This is From: Ghostbusters
The Better Known Song From This Soundtrack: Ghostbusters (Ray Parker Jr)
In 1983 Branigan provided the mid-tempo funk-rock Imagination for the Flashdance soundtrack but for Ghostbusters she switched to up-tempo pop-rock with Hot Night. The song was co-written by Diane Warren who was the one to write the English lyrics for Branigan’s hit Solitaire.
Fun fact: Laura performed this song when she guest starred on the TV show Automan.
