In 1982, Pat Benatar scored a top 20 hit on the Hot 100 charts with Shadows of the Night. It was the first single released from her 1982 album Get Nervous. It was also her second top five rock hit when it peaked at #3 on the Mainstream Rock charts.
The music video for Shadows of the Night centers around Benatar as a riveter dreaming about being a flying ace who helps fighting Nazis in World War II. It features Judge Reinhold as a pilot and Bill Paxton as Nazi radio operator. Benatar’s T-6 Texan aircraft is named “Midnight Angel”, a phrase also used in the song itself with a different meaning (“And now the hands of time are standin’ still/Midnight angel, won’t you say you will”). via Wikipedia.
