A Night To Remember is one of the singles from High School Musical 3: Senior Year, the 5th song heard in the movie and on the soundtrack and one of the largest musical numbers in this movie. The song is sung in the movie by the entire High School Musical 3 cast.

High School Musical 3: Senior Year

The song happens directly when Chad asks Taylor to go to prom with him, and he is dragged into a dressing room to choose his tux, along with the other boys. They are panicked, but the girls, who are in a different dressing room, are excited ("It’s the night of our nightmares/It’s the night of our dreams"). The scene cuts to the Evans house, with Ryan and Sharpay getting ready in bathrooms next to each other. Sharpay is undecided about her hair, and Ryan bemoans his appearance ("I look like a waiter!"). The scene changes again to five houses, one for each girl. After meeting the parents, everyone arrives to prom in a limo. Ryan and Kelsi appear late, and no one recognizes them at first, wondering who they are and why they had never noticed how hot they looked before now. They dance, and the song ends.

The second time the song is sung is in the auditorium during the Spring Musical right after the entire school joins Troy and Gabriella in the song Just Want To Be With You (Reprise) (A Night To Remember (Reprise)). In this version Tiara fills in for Sharpay as her understudy (which she planned from the beginning). It starts with some East High boys admiring how "good" and "fine" Tiara looks, and, although they don’t immediately recognize her, now they should. Tiara has a couple seconds of singing alone, when suddenly, a vengeful Sharpay (who's standing on a platform) is lowered by a wire, and once she sets foot on the stage, she and Tiara start fighting over who gets to be the star of the performance. It ends with Ryan, lowering both blondes into the stage through a trapdoor. Afterward, they all get a huge round of applause from the audience.
