"Stay the Night" is a song written by Peter Cetera and David Foster for the group Chicago and recorded for their album Chicago 17 (1984), with Cetera singing the lead vocals. Upbeat and rock-oriented, it was the first single released from that album, and reached number 16 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.[1] The song features noted session drummer Jeff Porcaro taking the place of Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine.

This song is also remembered for its music video, filmed in and around the Los Angeles River. It shows Peter Cetera chasing a hard-to-get lady, played by Ingrid Anderson[2] with Debbie Evans as stunt double, and features car-chases, notably featuring a red convertible Oldsmobile 442, and various stunts which Cetera supposedly performed himself. It was directed by Gilbert Bettman, Jr.
