1993 - I don't wanna fight - Promo CD Single - France

"I Don’t Wanna Fight" is a single from Tina Turner's album "What’s Love Got To Do With It".
The song is written by Lulu, Billy Lawrie and Steve DuBerry.

"I Don’t Wanna Fight" was first given to Sade. Sade passed it on to Tina. Tina decided to record it. At that time Tina’s Life Story movie came out, and they’ve used this song as ending credits in the movie. The reason was very simple. It matched her life story perfectly and the song was autobiographical. Lulu recorded the song herself as a b-side after Tina’s version was released in 1993.

 

 

Tina’s life story movie called "What’s Love Got To Do With It?" was also released in 1993. Tina and her manager decided to make a soundtrack album also called "What’s Love Got To Do With It?" and Tina re-recorded several old songs from her past with Ike.

 

 

"I Don’t Wanna Fight" was released as the first single of the album and was a hit on both sides of the ocean. The song is about marriage trouble and breaking up, because it’s no use to keep a bad marriage going. Tina’s vocals were amazing, and the song gives you reason to think and sends shivers through your spine.

    Tina Turner

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
