J Geils Band Fright Night 1985 Japanese 45
Boppin' Tonight is a song by the Fabulous Fontaines which was utilized in Fright Night. Written by music producers Gary Goetzman and Mike Piccirillo, it seems to be the only song ever recorded by The Fabulous Fontaines.

Use in the FilmEdit

The song plays in the film on Charley's car stereo as he pulls up to his home and encounters the prostitute heading to Jerry's. Presumably Gene Vincent's Be-Bop-a-Lula was intended to be playing, as that's the song Charley's singing when he emerges from his Ford Mustang.

SingleEdit

In addition to appearing on the soundtrack album, worldwide the song was issued as the b-side of the single for Fright Night by The J. Geils Band.

The releases are predominantly the same around the world, with poster art again adorning the front cover - the glaring exception is a white-label promo from Japan, which has a small photo of Amanda Bearse on the front accompanied by Japanese text.

In the Netherlands, they issued a 12" maxi-single. This edition includes the same versions of the songs cut in a less compressed format.

Written by Gary Goetzman and Mike Piccirillo
Performed by Fabulous Fontaines

I got the money
Uh-huh, my honey
Kick in the clutch
Cruisin' for a boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight

I'll pull your top down
Switch on some hot sounds
Dig in your heels
Cruisin for a boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight

Well, my feet are dancin' on the pedals tonight
Ooooh, under the driver's seat
This tale, it curves out of control
A little bit of action makes my baby roll

Throw back a cool one
Slip into Mach 1
Blowin' out the pipes
Cruisin' and a boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight

Well, my feet are dancin' on the pedals tonight
Whooo, under the driver's seat
This tale, it curves out of control
A little bit of action makes my baby roll

Throw back a cool one
Slip into Mach 1
Blowin' out the pipes
Cruisin' and a boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Bop with me, baby
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Bop with me, girl
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Hey, rev it up, rev it up
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Kick in the clutch
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
I love you so much
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Dig in your heels
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
I like the way it feels
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Bop with me, baby, hey
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Bop with me, girl
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight

Bop-boppin' tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Bop, bop tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Tonight, tonight
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight
Whoo!
Bop-bop-boppin' tonight...
