About Take Me Home Tonight

"Take Me Home Tonight" is a song by American rock singer Eddie Money. It was released in August 1986 as the lead single from his album Can't Hold Back. The song's chorus interpolates the Ronettes' 1963 hit "Be My Baby", with original vocalist Ronnie Spector reprising her role. The song reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 15, 1986, and number one on the Album Rock Tracks chart; outside the U. S., it was a top 15 hit in Canada. It received a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, and was Money's biggest hit on the U. S. charts. Alongside its album, "Take Me Home Tonight" helped revive Money's career after a period of declining sales. It also allowed Spector to resume her touring/recording career after several years of retirement.

I feel a hunger, it's a hunger
That tries to keep a man awake at night
Are you the answer? I shouldn't wonder
When I can feel you whet my appetite
With all the power you're releasing
It isn't safe to walk the city streets alone
Anticipation is running through me
Let's find the key and turn this engine on

I can feel you breathe
I can feel your heart beat faster

Take me home tonight
I don't wanna let you go 'til you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby, oh, ho, oh

I get frightened in all this darkness
I get nightmares I hate to sleep alone
I need some company, a guardian angel
To keep me warm when the cold winds blow

I can feel you breathe
I can feel your heart beat faster

Take me home tonight
I don't wanna let you go 'til you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby
Be my little baby, ho, huh

Just like Ronnie sang
I said
Just like Ronnie sang
Be my little baby
Baby, my darlin'
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I feel a hunger
It's a hunger

Take me home tonight
I don't wanna let you go 'til you see the light (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Take me home tonight
Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Be my little baby (take me home tonight)

I don't wanna let you go 'til you see the light
Take me home tonight
Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Be my little baby (take me home tonight)
I don't wanna let you go 'til you see the light (be my darling, oh ho, oh, oh)
Take me home tonight
Listen, honey, just like Ronnie sang (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Be my little baby (take me home tonight)
I don't wanna let you go 'til you see the light (no, no, no, no)
Take me home tonight
