At the closing ceremonies of the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles, the stadium was treated to Lionel Richie's 7-minute rendition of the song that is officially known as "All Night Long (All Night)."
Suited up in a blue sequined jacket, over a silver sequined shirt and white pants that would make a sailor blush, Lionel does "All Night Long" for what seems like all night long. Dancers in pastel sweats do the robot and do rudimentary breakdancing moves in a battlefield of smoke as the singer adds an extended call-and-response to his classic tune, which at the time was closer to contemporary. (It was the No. 1 single in the U.S. for four weeks at the end of 1983 and it charted in eight other countries that year).
