"Steamy Windows" is a song by Tina Turner. It was included on Turner's 1989 Foreign Affair album and released as the album's second single in November 1989, and third single in the United Kingdom and Ireland in February 1990. Written by Tony Joe White and produced by Dan Hartman, is known for its high energy and strong vocal performance. Released as the album's third single, it became a top ten hit in Belgium and Ireland, while reaching the top forty on the majority of all charts it appeared on.

It was covered two years later by country artist John Anderson for his album Seminole Wind as well as country artist Kenny Chesney.
