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. Due to the success of 'Into the Night,' Curb Records signed Mardones and he recorded 'Into the Night '89.' The track appeared on his self-titled release (known as the 'Blue Album' by his fans.) Not long after that, Mardones appeared on a Showtime tribute to Roy Orbison, alongside such luminaries as Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, Johnny Cash and k.d. lang. Elvis Presley's band was the house band for the evening. When Mardones came on stage to sing 'Running Scared,' few people knew his name, but when he finished the song, he received a standing ovation.
