“Get Up! (Before the Night Is Over)” is a 1990 song recorded by Belgian group Technotronic featuring Ya Kid K. It was released as the second single from the band’s debut album, Pump Up the Jam: The Album on which it features as the second track.

The single was very successful in many countries, becoming a top 10 hit in Australia, Canada, and U.S. and topping the chart in Belgium, Finland, Spain and Switzerland. In 1998 and 1999, it was re-released respectively under the title “Get Up (the ’98 Sequel)” and “Get Up (the 1999 Sequel)”.

The song appears in Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 4 and Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix. It contains a vocal sample of James Brown’s “Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved”. In 2007, the song was covered by Global Deejays (featuring Technotronic) who achieved a minor success in France.

When the song entered the UK chart at number 3, it completed the first ever UK Top 3 composed entirely of acts from outside the UK or US, alongside the Australian Kylie Minogue and the Irish Sinéad O’Connor.
