Eagle-Eye Cherry

Eagle-Eye Lanoo Cherry (born 7 May 1969) is a Swedish musician best known for his hit single "Save Tonight".

Cherry was born in Stockholm, Sweden,  the son of jazz artist Don Cherry and Swedish painter/textile artist Monika Cherry (née Karlsson). He is the half-brother of singer Neneh Cherry (his mother's daughter) and stepbrother to singer Titiyo. Other half-brothers are violinist Jan Cherry, Christian Cherry, and jazz musician David Ornette Cherry. At the age of 12, Cherry was sent to school in New York City. He remained there to work as an actor and a drummer in various bands.

In 1988, he was credited as "Teenager" in the film Arthur 2: On the Rocks.  In 1993 he starred on the short-lived NBC action/adventure television show South Beach.

His father died in 1995. In 1996 Cherry returned to Stockholm to focus on his music rather than the acting career that had taken precedence in his professional life.  He began writing and recording his debut album, Desireless, in his bedroom studio on an acoustic guitar. n According to manager Tommy Manzi, Cherry's perfectionism made him keep the recordings under wraps until the album was virtually complete. The album became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998 and 1999.  Desireless sold four million copies worldwide and was certified platinum in the United States.

Cherry co-wrote and sang on "Wishing It Was" on Santana's 1999 album Supernatural,  as well as in films such as Wim Wenders' The Soul of a Man, Y tu mamá también, The Love of the Game, GO, Best Laid Plans, Holes, Billy Elliot and Over Her Dead Body. Some of his best known songs include "Save Tonight", "Falling in Love Again", "Are You Still Having Fun", "Long Way Around", "Feels So Right", "Skull Tattoo" and "Don't Give Up".

On 27 November 2012 he appeared as musical guest on The Voice of Romania.

Eagle-Eye Cherry - Save Tonight


"Save Tonight" is a song by Swedish rock musician Eagle-Eye Cherry and the lead single from his 1997 debut album, Desireless. It is the album's opening track and gained substantial radio success, reaching number 3 in Ireland, number 5 in the US, number 6 in the UK, and number 2 in Cherry's native Sweden.

 It was voted song of the year by New Zealand radio station "The Edge" in 1997. "Save Tonight" is considered the signature song of Eagle-Eye Cherry. It was awarded a Rockbjörnen award in the "Swedish song of the year 1997" category.

The monochrome video for the song, filmed at Skånegatan 92-94 in Stockholm's Södermalm district, features Cherry playing different characters and seeing the story from different perspectives. The first is a man readying for a date by buying 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 tights (bought in the very first scene of the music video, which is watched by Cherry via shop window) then comes along and takes the money out of the cash register.

 As he leaves, however, he is run over by a pickup truck, and as bystanders help him up, he is revealed to actually be Cherry, as well as the driver in the truck. 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, walking to the home of his date. The video presents itself as being one continuous take.
