"Hullu yö" ("Crazy night") was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1991, performed in Finnish by Kaija.

The song was performed sixteenth on the night (following Israel's Duo Datz with "Kan" and preceding Germany's Atlantis 2000 with "Dieser Traum Darf Niemals Sterben"). At the close of voting, it had received 6 points, placing 20th in a field of 22.

The song is sung from the perspective of a woman who had a one-night stand with a man. Despite both of them claiming that this was all the relationship was, she sings that she wants to spend more time with him. Kaija also recorded the song in English and - very unusually - Italian, then under the titles "One More Lonely Night" and "Una notte folle" (translated: "A Crazy Night") respectively.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1992 Contest by Pave Maijanen with "Yamma, yamma".

This song can be found on Kaija Kärkinen's 1991 album "Mustaa vettä".
