“Save Tonight” is a rock single written by Eagle-Eye Cherry for his 1997 debut album Desireless. The song is the album’s opening track, and was released as its first single, reaching #3 in Ireland, #5 in the USA, #6 in the UK and #2 in Cherry’s native Sweden. It is considered to be his signature song.

It was featured on the video games Karaoke Revolution and American Idol and was featured in the movie A Lot Like Love.

The monochrome video for the song features Cherry playing different characters and seeing the story from different perspectives. At first, he is a man getting ready for a date by buying some roses and a bottle of wine at a deli. He then tells the butcher “goodbye” and the camera reveals that the butcher is in fact Cherry himself. A robber wearing a ski mask then comes along and takes the money out of the cash register. As he leaves, however, he is run over by a van, and as bystanders help him up, he is revealed to be Cherry, as is the driver in the van. Another Cherry is seen playing a guitar and another is a bum on the street. The “first” Cherry appears once again at the end of the video, apparently walking to his date’s place.
