1991 - Way of The World 7 Inch Single

"Way Of The World" is a single from Tina Turner's compilation album "Simply The Best".

"Way of The World" was the second song released in 1991-1992 from the "Simply The Best" Compilation album. The song was written by Albert Hammond and Graham Lyle.

The Queen seems to enjoy love a lot, because "Way of The World" is another love song. This catchy and smooth pop-soulfull ballad is about a woman who is deeply in love with a man, and completely devoted to him. She never wants to be without him.

Tina Turner performed it a couple of times on several shows, for instance on Top of the Pops and Fantastico! Tina never did perform this song in one of her live tours.

 

 

The single was released in different formats. 7" single, 12" single, cd single and cassette. For the release of "Way of The World" Tina shot a new video. Totally black and white and it shows the love between a woman and man. However there are two versions of this video. The regular and the Angelo’s cut version.
The B-side is "I Don't Wanna Lose You".
"I Don’t Wanna Lose You" is a single from Tina Turner's album ‘’Foreign Affair".
It is a classic love song. Tina Turner performed it a couple of times on several shows, for instance
on Countdown and the Royal Variety.
The song was released in the UK in 1989 and in 1990 in other European countries.


"I don’t wanna lose you" is a 1989 ballad written by Albert Hammond and Graham Lyle. It is a soft rock song about a woman who has fallen in love with a man even she doesn’t know him that well, but sure doesn’t wanna lose him. Because the feeling inside is so riiiiiigggghhttt.
Turner added the song to her setlist during the Foreign Affair Farewell Tour, and made the public fall in love with her and sang along with The Queen.

Single: Way of the world - 1991

Baby, I need a hand to hold tonight
and one bright star to remind me
how dear is this life
and baby, I've never known anyone like you
there's something very special about you
I can imagine living without you

It's the way of the world and it's motion
and no ocean can keep us apart
when the moment is right and you're holding me tight
you capture the beat of my heart
in my heart there's a fire that's burning
and there isn't a thing I can do
I'm resigned to the fact and there's no turning back
and I'll never regret loving you

Baby, I will go anywhere you need
as long as you're there beside me
baby, that's all I need
hold me, hold me and never let me go
I'm always gonna care about you
I never wanna be without you

It's the way of the world and it's motion
and no ocean can keep us apart
when the moment is right and you're holding me tight
you capture the beat of my heart
in my heart there's a fire that's burning
and there isn't a thing I can do
I'm resigned to the fact and there's no turning back
and I'll never regret loving you

You're everything I believe in
so don't ever lose that feeling
don't ever loose that feeling

"I Don't Wanna Lose You"
I don't wanna lose you

Album: Foreign Affair - 1989

Women of a certain age
They learn to rely and judge all his responses
Having played the mating game
She doesn't waste time cause all that she wants is
Really honest emotions
Ones he can't help but show
Though I hardly know your name I know about love and I know

[Chorus:]
I don't wanna lose you
I don't even wanna say goodbye
I just wanna hold on
To this true love, true love

Women who have made mistakes
Are a little afraid, they don't like taking chances
She will play the waiting game
She's never impressed by those manly advances
I know, I've only just met you
Maybe, I should know better
But when you look at me that way
There's something inside that's so right

[Chorus:]
I don't wanna lose you
I don't even wanna say goodbye
I just wanna hold on
To this true love, true love
I don't wanna lose you
And I always wanna feel this way
Cause every time I'm with you I feel true love, true love

Tell me you're real
You're not pretending
Let's make a deal
'Coz my heart's depending on you

    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.
