Tango in the Night is notable for the tight songwriting bond between keyboardist Christine McVie, and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. They co-wrote a trio of songs, including this soft and lush tune. For this number, Buckingham created a sonic palette, which was as mystical as McPhee's entranced lyrics.
"I can't remember how that happened," McVie admitted to Uncut in 2017. "It morphed somehow between us. We just happened to be doing stuff in the studio at the same time, so the co-write was fair dues."
The song was released as the B-side on the 1988 single release of "Isn't It Midnight."
