Miscellanea

"Tonight and the Rest of My Life" was recorded while Nina was signed to Outpost Records, a label owned by Geffen Records, following her departure from Veruca Salt in 1998. In 1999, Outpost Records folded and Nina was left without a label. Shortly after, Nina was signed to Warner Bros. Records.

The original "Tonight and the Rest of My Life" tracklist on Outpost Records was:

#"Tonight and the Rest of My Life" (Gordon) – 5:14
#"Now I Can Die" (Gordon) – 3:07
#"2003" (Gordon) – 4:05
#"Badway" (Gordon) – 3:08
#"Horses in the City" (Gordon) – 4:08
#"Hold on to Me" (Gordon) – 4:05
#"New Year's Eve" (Gordon) – 3:28
#"Fade to Black" (Gordon) – 4:07
#"Number One Camera" (Gordon) – 2:58
#"Got Me Down" (Gordon) – 4:05
#"Black and Blonde" (Gordon) – 4:23
#"Too Slow To Ride" (Gordon) – 3:49
#"Hate Your Way" (Gordon) – 4:46

"Black and Blonde" was removed from album because Nina felt it was a mean song about someone she didn't want to be mean to anymore. "The End of the World", a last-minute recording Nina did while recording with then boyfriend Stacy Jones' band American Hi-Fi, replaced it.

The singles for "Tonight and the Rest of My Life" also changed numerous times. When Outpost Records was in the initial stages of promoting the album and Nina they stated that the first single would be "Horses in the City". After Nina moved to Warner Bros. Records promo singles were circulated for the song "Now I Can Die" the March before the album's June 27 release date. One month later, Nina stated that the first single would be "Tonight and the Rest of My Life", which shortly after was released as the first single from the album.

"Hold On To Me" and "Now I Can Die" were the lead contenders for second single, but "2003" and "Got Me Down" were also being considered.
