"Another Sleepless Night" is a song written and produced by Mike "Hitman" Wilson, and recorded by American Dance/House singer Shawn Christopher. The single, the lead off track from the album of the same name, was the first of two number ones for the Chicago-born artist, reaching the top spot in February 1991.[1]

Background[edit]

When it was first released in 1990, the single was credited to Wilson, with Christopher being the featured singer, as the song was recorded for a Dance compilation for Arista Records. The feedback from the song resulted in Arista releasing the single with Christopher receiving major billing after it caught the attention of Arista founder Clive Davis, who immediately signed Christopher to a record deal.[2]
