"I Drove All Night" is a song written and composed by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly and made famous by Cyndi Lauper. The song was originally intended for Roy Orbison, who recorded it in 1987, but his rendition was not released until 1992, after Lauper's version of it had become a top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic in 1989.
"I Drove All Night" was recorded by Cyndi Lauper for her third solo album, A Night To Remember. Lauper said she wanted to do it because she liked the idea "of a woman driving, of a woman in control." The song was a top 10 pop hit in the United States (and was her last U.S. top 40 single to date), peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also a hit in other countries. The single was certified gold by the RIAA. It received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
