"Turn Out The Night" is a new wave and synthpop song by Amy Holland from the soundtrack for the movie Scarface.

Song information[edit]

The song was written by Pete Bellotte while the music was composed by Giorgio Moroder. When the song was released on the soundtrack, it was accidentally misprinted as Turn Out The Light and the correction to the song's title, however, was not corrected, leading up to many people thinking the song is called Turn Out The Light but the correct title is Turn Out The Night and it can be proven by the song's lyrics: Turn Out The Night, I can be strong as long as there's daylight. While most of the songs from the Scarface soundtrack were put into Grand Theft Auto III, this song was not. Amy Holland also recorded another song for the Scarface soundtrack "She's On Fire" which eventually ended up on the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto 3. The song is played in the scene where Tony Montana and his friend Manny Ribera arrive at the Babylon Club only to see that Tony's sister Gina is dancing with her boyfriend Fernando.
