"Thrills in the Night" is a song by the American hard rock band Kiss. Featured on the group's 1984 album Animalize, it was released as a single in 1985.


The track was written by Kiss guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley and ex-Plasmatics bassist Jean Beauvoir.

Two videos were made to promote the song. However, only one was commercially released, which featured the band playing in front of a live audience.[1] The clip would be the first with Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick, who replaced the departed Mark St. John earlier in 1984.

The song is about a woman who works a 9 to 5 job in a professional work environment. She also fulfills promiscuous sexual desires at night, in sharp contrast to the life she leads during the daytime.
