My First Night Without You

"My First Night Without You" is the second single released from Cyndi Lauper's third album A Night To Remember (1989).

Song Information

The song is about coming home for the first time without a partner being there after a break up. The video clip is also about this, with Lauper coming home after a long day at work to an empty room after a separation. The song was written by Lauper, Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg. The latter two also wrote True Colors and I Drove All Night.

Its b-side was Unabbreviated Love. It's a fan favorite; Lauper even performed it many times on her A Night To Remember tour in 1989.

To promote the single, promotional posters were sent to different malls and music stores that sold the single when it was originally released.

The single was considered a failure in most of the world because it failed to make a big impact on most charts. It did do moderately well in Chile. In the Radio Cidade from São Paulo, Brazil, this song was #1. In Colombia, the single was #1 for 10 weeks. Since the track didn't do too well on U.S. radio, most fans think more radio-friendly songs from the album, like Unconditional Love, would have done better as the commercially released second single.
