Flashback Friday: “The Best” by Tina Turner

The first time I heard this song was in 1988, and it wasn’t Tina Turner singing it, but Bonnie Tyler on her “Notes From America” album.  That album also had a version of “Hide Your Heart” on it before KISS made it their own, and a version of “Don’t Turn Around” that Ace Of Base made famous in the mid-90’s, which Tina Turner also covered.  Confused yet?

When I heard Tina’s version of “The Best” a year later, I thought it had hit potential, doing somewhat well on the charts, having a much longer shelf life on the TV promotion circuit.

More next week, as always.
