  • Jk from Chicago, Il CrazyC63312, you're confusing this with "Beautiful Night". The videos are somewhat similar, though.
  • Ken from Louisville, KyThere are two versions of this song in the movie and soundtrack album. The first is the version that everyone knows from the hit single. The second is a "dance" version that is played over the closing credits of the film. On the album it is called "No More Lonely Nights(version)".
  • Crazyc63312 from Why Do You Want To Know?, RiThere is a little nudity in this video, only like 2 or 3 seconds, tho.
