The album did not do as well as her previous albums and neither the recording industry or casual fans took much interest in the project; despite the success of the album's lead single, "I Drove All Night", which became a Top 10 hit, and at year's end, earned her a Grammy nomination.
Lauper toned down both her girlish sound and her mainstream punk look for the album, which was released in 1989 when alternative/grunge rock music was becoming popular, burgeoning from the underground music scene. The album sold moderately well, but could not compare to the multi platinum sales of her two previous albums. Many critics and some fans agreed that a lack of strong hits were one of the main reasons for a lukewarm response to the album. In the UK, it was her highest charting album at No.9, but ultimately sold less than her previous two.
Lauper, and music critics, have noted the various battles she was having with Sony. The company was not keen on accepting Lauper as a songwriter and musician, as well as a singer and fashion/pop cultural icon.
The album was originally conceptualized as a project called "Kindred Spirit" and was going to be released with the track "Hole in My Heart (All the Way to China)", but when that song and the film Vibes were unsuccessful, it was repackaged. Some proof sheets of the original album artwork exist with the alternate title and track listing.
Although the album is called A Night to Remember, Lauper prefers to call it as A Night to Forget, given the poor sales, and the problems that happened with David Wolf, her producer and boyfriend at the time, during the production of the album.
