"In the Heat of the Night" is a pop and synthpop song by German singer Sandra. The song was released in November 1985 as the second single from the album The Long Play, where it charted at #1 in Switzerland and Israel, #2 in Germany, and #8 in South Africa (in mid-1986).
The song was covered by Hong Kong pop singer Anita Mui in 1986, by Finnish gothic metal band To/Die/For in 2000, and Swedish progressive rock band Odyssey in 2009. The song was also redone by a group named E-Rotic for PlayStation 2's Dance Dance Revolution Extreme 2. Also in 1999, a remix version of the song by Sandra was released as a promo single only in France. In 2006 Sandra recorded a new mix of this song. This mix appeared on her compilation Reflections - Reproduced Hits (2006).
In 2007 Virgin Music France decided to release a special version of Reflections, containing three new remixes made by French DJs. "In the Heat of the Night" was planned to be released as a single in France containing four new versions of the song, in order to promote the new compilation.
