In 1983, Country-Pop star Kenny Rogers recorded the song as a duet with Pop star Sheena Easton. Their recording reached #1 on the Billboard Country Singles chart, #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #2 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. The duet also reached the Top 30 in the UK.

“‘We’ve Got Tonight’ was remade by Lulu and Ronan Keating for Together – a 2002 album featuring Lulu with a number of diverse duet partners – and credited to ‘Ronan Keating featuring Lulu’. (In some territories the single was released with Lulu’s vocal replaced by that of Jeanette Biedermann: credited to ‘Ronan Keating featuring Jeanette’. In Italy the track was issued with the Italian Soul singer Giorgia Todrani as Keating’s duet partner but failed to chart. In the Philippines, Keating performed the song with Kyla.)”
