On November 13th, 1976, Rod Stewart started an 8 week run at No. 1 on the US singles chart with ‘Tonight’s The Night’. It was Rod’s second US No. 1; it made No. 5 in the UK after being banned by many radio stations due to song being about the seduction of a virgin.

The song features whispers from actress Britt Ekland who was Stewart’s girlfriend at the time.

Some radio stations play edits of the song, shortening the coda, as well as the whispers, because they were deemed to be too suggestive for airplay, where the songs could be banned from being played on the air.
