You may or not know that I’m quite the Tina Turner fan, one of my favorite tracks is What’s Love Go To Do With It, and when I saw that Zimmer had got his hands on it and given the classic a rework, I knew I was in for a treat!
Me either Tina… Me either! Here is TINA TURNER and a fantastic video flashback for her song I CAN’T STAND THE RAIN. This just seemed a little fitting with the current weather conditions that are going on outside. Miraculously the idea for this post came to me when I exclaimed today “I can’t stand the rain” You’re speaking my language Tina! :) PS: The water “special effects” in this 80′s flashback video are just simply amazing! LOL
It’s flashback time! This is a great performance by two rock legends, MICK JAGGER and TINA TURNER at Live Aid in 1985. The duo performed STATE OF SHOCK and IT’S ONLY ROCK AND ROLL. Just look at the chemistry between them, I wonder if that little ‘surprise’ at the end was planned, judging by the look on her face it wasn’t!
The legendary Tina Turner turns 69 today! She’s celebrating with a show in Newark, New Jersey, it will be an amazing show I’m sure. I’m grateful I got the chance to see her live this year, it was of the best concerts I’ve ever been too. For those of you not so fortunate, here is a YouTube clip of ‘What’s Love Got To do With It’ from Atlanta!
Well its time for my Halloween treat! In celebration of the fact I’m seeing Tina Turner in concert on Sunday I’d like to share the fantastic track ‘Acid Queen’ and the video from the rock musical movie ‘Tommy, based on the Who’s album of the same name. This is the scene in which Tina, the Acid Queen tries to cure Tommy with drugs! Scary stuff indeed!
You Madonna fans may notice that Madonna swiped this look for ‘Let It Will Be’ on her Confessions promo tour (the backdrop video) and Music Inferno on the Confessions Tour ;) Acid Queen (Download)
Here is a hard to find track by Tina Turner who originally recorded Don’t Turn Around. This song appeared as a B-Side to Tina’s single Typical Male. Years later it was a smash hit for Ace Of Base. This song was written by one of our favorite writers Diane Warren along with Albert Hammond.
From Tina Turner’s hit single Break Every Rule here is the B-Side to the single Take Me To The River. This version of the song is most excellent! Included in this post is the Single Mix of Break Every Rule too! Happy Sunday!
