I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down is a song written by Earl Randle, and first recorded in 1972 by Ann Peebles. The song was subsequently recorded by Paul Young for his 1985 album release The Secret of Association.

"This (I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down) was staying true to the concept of finding rare soul songs and giving them a reworking. It just got wilder and wilder as it went on. We decided it should be a tougher song, because the lyrics are tough. We got Mark Pinder [drummer] out in the studio with a great big sheet of metal, which we suspended, and he whacked it with a metal hammer, which we sampled for the record. Those were the things that made recording fun." - Quote by Paul Young, May 2013, from the liner notes for the 2-CD collection, Remixes And Rarities, Cherry Pop Records, Cat. No. CRPOPD128, released in 2013.
