"Give Me Tonight" is a 1984 single by Shannon, an American R&B and dance artist. Released as the follow-up to her smash debut "Let the Music Play", "Give Me Tonight" was not as successful as its predecessor on the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 46. It did, however, receive the same enthusiastic response in the dance clubs as her previous single, hitting the top spot on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in March 1984 for two weeks.[1] It also was a significant Urban hit, reaching number 6 on the American R&B chart. The song also peaked at number 24 on the UK Singles Chart.

In 2000 Hex Hector remixed the song and the mixes were called the "Give Me Tonight (2000 A.D. Mixes)".
