This week it’s pop legend Tina Turner. Turner had 34 top 40 hits including 10 top tens (4 with husband Ike)
In 1983, a decade after her last hit with Ike Turner with “Nutbush City Limits” she released a cover of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” and so began a massively successful reinvention and solo career. The album it was on, “Private Dancer” was a smash, producing seven singles including “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” and “Private Dancer”.
Turner has some great songs and these two of many I like.
Firstly the song which kicked her solo career off.
“Let’s Stay Together” reached number 6 in 1983

“We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)” reached number 3 in 1985. This was from the Mel Gibson film “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” in which Turner co-starred.
