The Great Muppet Caper Minute 42 – Match Made in Heaven

The Electric Mayhem give us some traveling music with the song “Night Light” as the Happiness Hotel Courtesy Bus rolls on.

NOTES AND RESEARCH

I have the feeling it’s going to be a long night…

 

“Night Life”

music, yeah!

Gimme my night life

Talk me that guitar

And roll me that boogie, yeah!

Gimme my night life

(On soundtrack only)

Dance in the moonlight

We’ll rock until dawn

And if you can’t dig it, baby

I’m movin’ on

Sing me the good times

‘Cause I need the feelin’, yeah

Gimme my night life

Gimme my night life

Gimme my night life

Some versions of the movie, such as those aired on TV in some markets and the 1984 CBS/Fox VHS release, feature only an instrumental version of the song without any lyrics.

In 2011, Brandon Saller of Atreyu and Billy Martin of Good Charlotte performed the song on “The Green Album”.
