Tonight I’m Yours

Tonight I'm Yours is the eleventh studio album by Rod Stewart, released in 1981. It features hints of classic rock, pop and new wave. The album had three hit singles, with the title track "Tonight I'm Yours (Don't Hurt Me)" (US Billboard No. 20, US Cash Box No. 15; Canada No. 2[4]), "Young Turks" (US No. 5), and "How Long?" (US No. 49).
Tonight I'm Yours saw Rod Stewart further adopting current musical trends, after some disco-influenced songs on Blondes Have More Fun and Foolish Behaviour, by adding elements of synthpop and new wave to a couple of songs (the title track, and "Young Turks"), while mostly keeping to his rock traditions elsewhere. The album included three covers: "Tear It Up", "How Long?", and "Just Like a Woman".

The song "Never Give Up on a Dream" was dedicated to Canadian athlete Terry Fox, who ran 3,339 miles with one prosthetic leg in the Marathon of Hope to raise money for cancer research. Fox succumbed to cancer in 1981, the year the album was released.

The music video for "Tonight I'm Yours" was shot by famous Australian Music-Video Director, Russell Mulchany

The album was mostly well received, being given four out of five stars in both Rolling Stone's contemporary review[3] and in a retrospective from AllMusic.[1] On AllMusic, Stewart has not yet surpassed the 4-star rating that the album received with any of his subsequent releases. The album has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.

The album reached No. 11 on the "Pop Album Charts" in the US, eventually going Platinum. The song "Young Turks" was the biggest hit from the album, reaching No. 5 on the "Pop Singles" chart. "Young Turks", and four further singles, "How Long?", "Jealous", "Tonight I'm Yours (Don't Hurt Me)", and "Tora, Tora, Tora (Out With The Boys)", all peaked within the Top 50 of the "Pop Singles" and "Mainstream Rock" charts.
