"Into the Nightlife" is a 2008 song written by Cyndi Lauper, Peer Åström, Johan Bobäck and Max Martin, and produced by Lauper, Åström and Bobäck, for Lauper's tenth studio album Bring Ya to the Brink. It peaked at #1 on the U.S Billboard Hot Dance Club Play and on the Cashbox Top Dance Singles. It became Lauper's first Australian chart single in fourteen years.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lauper says that the song title was inspired by Henry Miller's book Into the Night Life that inspired Lawrence Ferlinghetti's A Coney Island of the Mind, which inspired her to describe the images of nightlife in New York City.
The single was released to UK radio stations early September 2008. As of August 2008, the song has sold 16,000 downloads in the U.S. It has had over 200,000 plays on the Last.fm by more than 26.000 users.
The music video for the song which was directed by Lauper herself and produced by 44 Productions was partly filmed at Splash Bar in New York City on 20 May 2008. Fans were invited to come be extras in the video.
