"Stay With Me Tonight" is a song by the British synthpop group The Human League. It was jointly written by Philip Oakey and producer Ian Stanley, features lead vocals by Oakey; with backing by co-vocalists Susan Ann Sulley and Joanne Catherall. Post production by re-mixers 'Space Kittens'.

Background

"Stay With Me Tonight" was recorded at HL Studios in Sheffield during 1995. It was released as a single in the UK in January 1996 by EastWest Records, where it reached number 40 in the UK singles chart remaining there for 2 weeks. The track had previously been a filler on the Virgin Records Human League Greatest Hits compilation album (1995 version).

Lyrically the song is (another) story by Oakey about being left by a girlfriend, and is written about their last night together.

It was critically well received, but was not heavily promoted and did not sell in large enough quantities to make any impact on the charts.

"Muzic Magazine" commented in 1996:
