Night Shift

Album: Night Shift soundtrack (1982)
Charted: 60
  • This is the theme song to the comedy film of the same name, which starred Henry Winkler (Happy Days) and Shelley Long (Cheers). The film itself was not a great success, and is chiefly remembered for putting Michael Keaton on the map. The song is rather haunting. It's partly about prostitution (which was part of the film's plot), but is also inclusive of night owls in general, and refers to what city life is like after the sun goes down. >>
