Tonight is the title track from David Bowie's Tonight album, including guest vocals from Tina Turner. The single was curiously released with no hints about Tina and without a music video. Tina and David performed the song live in Birmingham on March 23, 1985 at Tina’s Private Dancer Tour. This live version was released as a single as well in 1988, taken from the album Live In Europe.
Released in November 1984 from EMI America Records on 7“ (poster) & 12“ vinyl, Tonight reached #53 (Pop), #28 (Club Play) in America and #53 in England.

Lazy reggae rhythms meet swirling strings in a hymn to romance and catatonia; harmony vocals by Tina Turner are made of sterner stuff.
