The best (#OriginalMyAss Ep3)

I’ve never been a major fan of the music of TINA TURNER, I was a bigger fan of her legs. But when she dropped THE BEST as the lead single to her 1989 “Foreign Affair”, it quickly became a favourite at our local school dances. It was a make-out song of note. Some people even bought the album!

Imagine my disappointment to learn that she wasn’t the first woman to record this song.  It also quite strange that she seems to be flirting with a horse in the video of the song. Or maybe it’s just me.

The original version was sung by Bonnie Tyler in 1988 and it sounds basically the same and the video is also pretty awful.

    I just love this song for all kind of reasons…. which I rather won’t go into on this platform. I’m also a huge fan of Tina Turner – something that surely will give my age away 😉
