Why Must We Wait Until Tonight? is a wonderful ballad, written and produced by Bryan Adams and remixed by Tony Dofat. It’s a new recorded song from the soundtrack album What’s Love Got To Do With It and the second single in America and Germany and the third one in England. As a special bonus, the limited edition CD single includes a full color poster.

The music video was directed by Peter Care and produced by Howard Woffingden. It was filmed in black & white and monotone and shows scenes with different couples and Tina wearing the same black dress as on the single cover. Unfortunately, the clip is only available on the Simply The Best Video-CD edition and is still waiting for a release on DVD. An additional live video was recorded at the Blockbuster Pavilion in San Bernardino, California on September 15, which is available on the What’s Love? Live home video as a bonus.

Released in September 1993 from Virgin Records in America and in October 1993 from Parlophone Records in Europe on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, cassette and 5“ (poster) CD, Why Must We Wait Until Tonight? reached #16 in England, #43 in Europe and #55 in Germany. It was also a #12 airplay hit in Europe.

Billboard Magazine - September 04, 1993: Follow-up to the recent top 10 smash "I Don’t Wanna Fight" is a pleading ballad that derives much of its drama and intensity from La Tina’s incomparable vocal style. Plunking piano/synth riffs click over a shuffling and percussive beat, with just a subtle touch of Hammond organ here and there to provide a blues subtext. Excellent cut from the soundtrack of "What’s Love Got To Do With It" deserves instant acceptance at top 40 and AC formats.
