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.

CashBox Magazine - December 01, 1984: 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.
