Be Tender With Me Baby is a slow ballad, taken from the album Foreign Affair as the last European single, but was not released in America. Tina performed the song as the encore at her Foreign Affair Tour and once again in 2008 / '09 at her 50th Anniversary Tour. Beside the live version on this single, an additional version is available on the Do You Want Some Action! home video from 199o. As a special bonus, a cut to shape picture disc was released in addition to the regular single.

The song again, was one of those annoying songs. If you didn’t really deliver it properly. What can I tell you except to say that they were old fashioned songs again. It was songs that you wanna sing about. You’ll always get into that mood of feeling like you want to say (sings)… It’s an old melody that’s very sad and very pleading, that always works. If you look back into the days of Sam Cook and all of those Sam and Dave songs, they did that pleading type of thing, and Marvin Gaye. That’s what it took me back to. Just took me back to all of that, the feeling of those songs.
