When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going was a 1985 single by British singer Billy Ocean. The song was recorded at Battery Studios North London.

The song was taken from the soundtrack of the film The Jewel of the Nile, a film in which Michael DouglasKathleen Turner and Danny DeVito starring in films made. Helped by a video clip, in which the above mentioned movie stars play along, it became a big hit in many countries. The song was the first number one-listing for Billy Ocean in Netherlands and Belgium.
