Album information

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 athleteTerry 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. It also played during the audition process of the seventh season of American Idol, in 2008 [1].

Critical reaction

The album was mostly well-received, receiving 4 stars alike from both Allmusic and Rolling Stone. 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 10 million in worldwide.
