Iconic British rock singer Rod Stewart began an 8 week run at the top spot on the charts on this day in 1976 with ‘Tonight’s the Night’.

The soft, silky, and sultry song features Stewart’s smooth singing and lustful and longing lyrics towards an unnamed lover. However, it does feature some spoken French words from Stewart’s then-girlfriend and Swedish actress Britt Eklund during the coda.

It has gone on to become one of Rod Stewart’s best-known songs.
