"Just Another Night" is a song written and performed by Mick Jagger, released as the first single from his debut album, She's the Boss, in 1985. It reached number 32 in the United Kingdom and number 12 in the United States. It was a bigger hit on mainstream rock radio in the US, reaching number one for two weeks on the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart in March 1985.

The music video, directed by Julien Temple, features actress Rae Dawn Chong as Jagger's love interest.[1]

Jagger was accused of infringing the copyright of another song entitled "Just Another Night" by Patrick Alley, a Jamaican reggae singer from New York. A six-member jury ruled in Jagger's favor in 1988.[2]
