Produced by Mutt Lange and Bryan Adams the song was recorded by Nigel Green at Battery Studios, London, and by Ken Lomas at Warehouse Studios, Vancouver. Mixed by Bob Clearmountain at Mayfair Studios, London.
Vallance involvement was minimal when it was written and recorded. "There Will Never Be Another Tonight" was actually written in 1988 or '89 by Adams and Vallance. The demo got the title "Buddy Holly idea" since it vaguely reminiscent of the Buddy Holly song "Peggy Sue". Lange and Adams turned the demo into a song.
"There Will Never Be Another Tonight" was officially released to US radio on November 10, 1991. The song reached the top forty on the Hot 100, and the following week it debuted on the mainstream rock tracks at 6. In Canada it would chart on their officialRPM singles chart at number two and became the first single from the album to not peak at number one.
