This Friday’s song is actually two songs from the amazing Tina Turner. The first is “What’s Love Got to Do with It.” This song was released on the Private Dancer album in 1984. The album spawned several hit singles, including “What’s Love Got to Do with It” and “Private Dancer,” and earned her multiple Grammy Awards. Tina’s powerful voice, energetic stage presence, and signature dance moves captivated audiences worldwide. I picked the official music video and the black-and-white version. Both are fabulous.
The second song is “Proud Mary.” The version I picked is the one from the Ed Sullivan Show on January 11, 1970. If this doesn’t get you up dancing, nothing will.
The world is much richer for everything this strong and amazing woman gave to all of us. Her legacy extends beyond her music. Tina Turner is a symbol of resilience and empowerment having overcome personal hardships to achieve tremendous success.
Hope you can take a few minutes on this holiday weekend to enjoy and remember the fabulous Tina Turner.
