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.

This substantially reworked version of the Bowie-Iggy Pop track which originally appeared on Pop’s „The Idiot“ is an excellent choice for the follow-up single to „Blue Jean“. Featuring a heartfelt duet from Bowie and Tina Turner, Tonight's sad-eyed reggae sound should capture Bowie fans old and new with yet another musical approach. Excellent steel drum-sounding fills make this release a colorful one which captures Bowie and Turner at their soulful best.
