April Wine Rock Myself To Sleep Single 01 Front Cover
Rock Myself to Sleep is a song by April Wine which was used in the original Fright Night.

Use in the FilmEdit

The song plays in the background as Charley and Amy talk in the restaurant.

ReleasesEdit

In addition to appearing on the soundtrack, Rock Myself to Sleep was included on April Wine's 1985 album Walking Through Fire. It was later included on the 1992 compilation Over 60 Minutes with April Wine: The Hits, as well as on the 1994 The April Wine Collection 4-CD set.

The song was also issued as a single. The cover is similar to the Walking Through Fire cover, with flames engulfing one side of the sleeve and a guitar on the other. The back cover denotes that the song was utilized in Fright Night. Additionally, a rare 12" version exists, however it's not a remix but rather a less compressed release of the same recording.

Music VideoEdit

A music video was created but unfortunately, it's not a tie-in with Fright Night, it instead focuses on a spoiled rich girl who rips off her clothes and dances around the living room watching April Wine perform the song on laserdisc.

Written by Kimberly Rew and Vince de la Cruz
Performed by April Wine

Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you

And I wanna say
It's not the same since you went away
And it's not right
That you're not here with me tonight
And it's a crime
Just lyin' here wasting my precious time
I'm so lonely and I'm so blue
Thinkin' about the things I could do to you

Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you

And I wanna know
Don't you see how you hurt me so?
Goin' out of my head
Yeah, I'm hearin' it since you left
And it's a crime
Just lying here wasting my precious time
I'm so lonely and I'm so blue
Thinkin' 'bout the things I could do to you
Every night I rock

Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Every night I rock myself to sleep
Thinkin' about you, thinkin' about you
