Benny Mardones (born November 9, 1946) is an American pop singer and songwriter who is best known for his hit single "Into the Night," which hit the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart twice, in 1980 and again in 1989. The story behind "Into the Night" charting twice is this: In 1989, KZZP, a radio station in Arizona, ran a segment titled "Where Are They Now?" The most popular question was, 'Whatever happened to the guy who sang "Into The Night?"' Scott Shannon, then program director for Pirate Radio in Los Angeles, added "Into The Night" to its playlist.
