1993 - What's love got to do with it?

What's love got to do with it is the eighth solo album by Tina Turner, released on Parlophone in 1993.
The soundtrack album for the 1993 Tina Turner biographical film What's Love Got to Do with It, it was released by Touchstone Pictures the same year.

Turner re-recorded many of her songs from the Ike and Tina Turner period for this album including their first hit single "A Fool In Love".
Three brand new tracks were also included, "I Don't Wanna Fight" being a top 10 hit in both the U.S. and U.K.
The album also includes Turner's version of The Trammps' disco classic "Disco Inferno", a song she had often performed live in concert during the late seventies, but was never previously recorded in studio.
Two tracks from her 1984 breakthrough solo album Private Dancer are included as well, the title track to the movie and "I Might Have Been Queen".
The album hit #1 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified platinum in many countries including the U.S., the U.K., and Germany.

The U.S. version of the album omits two tracks; "Shake a Tail Feather" and "Tina's Wish".

Tracklist
1.I don't wanna fight
I don't wanna fight

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

There's a pale moon in the sky
The kind you make your wishes on
Like the light in your eyes
The one I built my dreams upon
It's not there any longer
Something happened somewhere
And we both know why
But me, I'm getting stronger
We must stop pretending
I can't live this life

I don't care who's wrong or right
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Too much talking babe)
Let's sleep on it tonight
I don't really wanna fight no more
(This is time for letting go)

I hear a whisper in the air
It simply doesn't bother me
Can't you see that I don't care
Or are you you looking right through me
Seems to me that lately
You look at me the wrong way and I start to cry
Could it be that maybe
This crazy situation is the reason why

I don't care who's wrong or right
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Too much talking babe)
Let's sleep on it tonight
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Tired of all these games)

But baby don't you know
That I don't wanna hurt no more
(It's time, I'm walking babe)
Don't care now who's to blame
I don't really wanna fight no more
(This is time for letting go)

Hanging on to the past
It only stands in our way
We had to grow for our love to last
But we just grew apart

No, I don't wanna hurt no more
But baby don't you know
No I don't wanna hurt no more
(Too much talking babe)
Don't care now who's to blame
I don't really wanna fight no more
(Tired of all these games)
I don't care who's wrong or right
I don't really wanna fight no more
(It's time, I'm walking babe)
So let's sleep on it tonight
I don't really wanna fight no more
(This is time for letting go)

2.Rock me baby
Rock me baby

Album: What's love got to do with it? (originally from B.B.King) - 1993

Rock me baby, rock me all night long
I said I want you to
Rock me baby, rock me all night long
I want you to rock me like my back ain't got no bones

Roll me daddy like you roll your flour dough
Want you to roll me daddy like you roll your flour dough
I want you to roll me till I want no more

When you see me coming go get your rockin' chair
When you see me coming go get your rockin' chair
I want you to rock me, rock me away from here
Rock me baby, rock me all night long
I said I want you to Rock me baby, rock me all night long
I want you to rock me like my back ain't got no bones

Roll me daddy like you roll your flour dough
I said I want you to roll me daddy like you roll your flour dough
I want you to roll me till I want no more

- Riley King, Joe Josea - 3:57
3.Disco Inferno
Disco Inferno

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

To my surprise one hundred stories high
People getting loose now, getting down on the roof
Folks screaming, out of control
It was so entertaining when the boogie starts to explode

[Chorus:]
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down

Satisfaction came in a chain reaction
I couldn't get enough, so I had to self-destruct
The heat was on, rising to the top
Everybody is going strong, and that is when my spark got hot
I heard somebody say
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down
(Burn baby burn) Disco Inferno (Burn baby burn)
Burn that mother down

Up above my head
I hear music in the air (I hear music)
That makes me know
There's a party somewhere

(Just can't stop) When my spark gets hot
(Just can't stop) When my spark gets hot

- Leroy Green, Ron Kersey - 4:03
4.Why must we wait until tonight?
Why must we wait until tonight?

Album: What's Love got to do with it - 1993

Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight
Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight

You're gonna take a little time
Gonna drink me like a fine wine
Write the book of love line by line
But I wanna play with you baby
Right now
Go all the way with you baby
And show you how
'Cos my body just can't say no
And my fingers just won't let go

Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight
Tell me why
Why when I've waited all my life

You're touching me, I'm touching you
What should I do now?
Tell me why
Why must we wait till tonight

You like to take it real slow
Show me every little move you know
Take a little love and watch it grow
But I wanna lay with you darling
Right now
Make love all day with you baby
And show you how
Take my body don't take my time
Take your lips and make them mine
Tell me why
Why must we wait until tonight
Tell me why
Why when I've waited all my life
You're touching me, I'm touching you
What should I do now?
Tell me why
Why must we wait till tonight

- Bryan Adams, Robert John Lange - 5:53
5.Stay a while
Stay a while

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

So who are you gonna turn to when the light is fading
Who are you gonna run to when the rain sets in
Who do you come to when the blues comes calling
Who are you trying to fool coming around here again
Yes, I heard you found a new plaything
Right now it seems you need a friend

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you're lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too
So stay awhile
I'll stay awhile

All I ever wanted was a shoulder to lean on
And all you ever wanted was a dream that would last
Promises made in the heat of the moment
I know I never told you that was too much to ask
But it won't take much gentle persuasion
To make you remember, make me forget

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you're lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too
So stay awhile
You may not be a knight in white satin
Maybe the best was all in the past
Turn the lights low, lay down beside me
Just till the dawn, I don't want you to go

Tell me you want me
Baby, I need you too
Stay awhile

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you're lonely, baby, I'm lonely, too

Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you love me, baby, I love you too
Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through
Tell me you love me, baby, I want you too
Why don't you stay a while
Just till the night is through

- Terry Britten, Graham Lyle - 4:50
6.Nutbush city limits
Nutbush city limits

Single: Nutbush City Limits - Version 1993

A church house gin house
A school house outhouse
On highway number nineteen
The people keep the city clean

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

Twenty-five for speed limit
Motorcycle not allowed in it
You go to store on Friday

You go to church on Sunday

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

You go to the fields on weekdays
And have a picnic on Labor Day
You go to town on Saturday
And go to church every Sunday

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

No whiskey for sale
If you get drunk no bail
Salt pork and molasses
Is all you get in jail

They call it Nutbush, oh Nutbush
They call it Nutbush city limits

A little old town in Tennessee
A quiet little old community
A one-horse town
You have to watch what you're putting down
In old Nutbush, oh Nutbush

- Tina Turner - 3:19
7.(Darlin') You know I love you
(Darlin') You know I love you

Album: What's love got to do with it - Version 1993

I know you love me baby
But you never tell me so
I know you love me baby
But you never tell me so
If you don't tell me that you love me
I'm gonna pack my bags and go

I live across the street from the jukebox baby
All night long they play the blues
I live across the street from the jukebox baby
All night long they play the blues
Everytime they spin that record
Honey it makes me think of you

One little song in particular baby
Always sticks in my mind
One little song in particular baby
Always sticks in my mind
Everytime they play it baby
I start right into cryin'
Oh baby please don't leave me

Now I'm gonna crawl across my bed, baby
Cry myself to sleep
Yeah I'm gonna crawl across my bed baby
Cry myself to sleep
And in my dreams I hear you saying
Lover please come back to me

- King, Jules Taub - 4:27
8.Proud Mary
Proud Mary

Album: What's love got to do with it (originally from John Fogerty) - 1993

Y' know, every now and then
I think you might like to hear something from us
Nice and easy
But there's just one thing
You see we never ever do nothing
Nice and easy
We always do it nice and rough
So we're gonna take the beginning of this song
And do it easy
Then we're gonna do the finish rough
This is the way we do "Proud Mary"

And we're rolling, rolling, rolling on the river
Listen to the story
I left a good job in the city
Working for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
Worrying 'bout the way things might have been
Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of the city
Till I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen
Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning
And we're rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

If you come down to the river
I bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry if you got no money
People on the river are happy to give

- John Fogerty - 5:25
9.A fool in love
A fool in love

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

There's something on my mind
Won't somebody please, please tell me what's wrong

[Chorus:]
You're just a fool, you know you're in love
You've got to face it to live in this world
You take the good along with the bad
Sometimes you're happy and sometimes you're sad
You know you love him, you can't understand
Why he treats you like he do when he's such a good man

He's got me smiling when I should be ashamed
Got me laughing when my heart is in pain
Oh no, I must be a fool
Cause I'll do anything you want me to do

[Chorus]

Without my man I don't wanna live
You think I'm lying but I'm telling you like it is
He's got my nose open and that's no lie
And I, I'm gonna keep him satisfied

[Chorus]

Waves of action speak louder than words
The truest thing that I ever heard
I trust my man and all that he do
And I, and I'll do anything you want me to do

- Ike Turner - 2:54
10.It's gonna work out fine
It's gonna work out fine

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

There's something on my mind

I know you love me baby
But you never tell me so
I know you love me baby
But you never tell me so
If you don't tell me I'm gonna pack my rags and go

Well across the street no. 2 block baby
All night long they play the blues
I never cross the street no. 2 block baby
All night long they play the blues
And every time they spend a ribbit
Honey it makes me think of you

I want no song in particular baby
Always fixing my mind
I want no song in particular baby
Always fixing my mind
And every time they play it baby
I start writing to cry
Baby please don't leave me

When I follow cross my baby
Cry myself asleep
Yeah when I follow cross my baby Cry myself asleep
And in my dreams I here you saying
Lover please come back to me

- Sylvia McKinney, Rose McCoy - 2:49
11.Shake a tail feather
Shake a tail feather

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

Well, I heard about the girl
You've been dancing with
All over the neighborhood
Tell me why didn't you ask me baby?
Or didn't you think I could?

Well, I know that your partner will never step aside
I've seen you do the Jerk all night
Why didn't you ask me baby?
I would have shown you how to do it right
Do it right, do it right, do it right
Do it right, do it right, do it right, do it right

Ahh...Twist it
Shake it, shake it, shake it baby
Here we go loop de loop
Shake it up baby
Here we go loop de la
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Well, you bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
Well, you bend over and let me see you shake a tail feather
All right

[Repeat]

- Verlie Rice, Otis Hayes, Andre Williams - 2:32
12.I might have been queen
I might have been queen

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

I'm a new pair of eyes
Every time I am born
An original mind
Because I just died
I'm scanning the horizon
For someone recognizing
That I might of been queen
For every sun that sets
There is a new one dawning
For every empire crushed
There is a brand new nation
Let the waters rise
I have ridden each tide
From the gates of the city
Where the first born died

[Chorus:]
And I might have been queen
I remember the girl in the fields with no name
She had a love
Oh, but the rivers won't stop for me
No, the rivers won't stop for me

I'm a new pair of eyes
An original mind
With my senses of old
And the heart of a giant
And I'm searching through the wreckage
For some great recollection
That I might have been queen
For every sage that falls
There is an ancient child

[Chorus]

I look up to the stars
With my perfect memory
I look through it all
And my future's no shock to me
I look down but I see no tragedy
I look up to my past
A spirit running free
I look down, I look down and I'm there, in history
Oh, I'm a soul survivor

- Jeanette Obstoj, Rupert Hine, Jamie West-Oram - 4:20
13.What's love got to do with it
What's love got to do with it

Album: Private Dancer - 1984

You must understand
Though the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it's only the thrill
Of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract
It's physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore
That it means more than that

[Chorus:]
What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love, but a second-hand emotion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

It may seem to you
That I'm acting confused
When you're close to me
If I tend to look dazed
I read it some place
I've got cause to be
There's a name for it
There's a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason
You do it for me

[Chorus]

I've been taking on a new direction
And I have to say
I've been thinking 'bout my own protection
It scares me to feel this way

[Chorus]

What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love, but a sweet old fashioned notion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

- Britten, Lyle - 3:49
14.Tina's wish
Tina's wish

Album: What's love got to do with it - 1993

I'm talking to the priest
The high priest
And everybody out there in the universe
If what I'm saying is wrong
Then tell me the right way to say it
Cause I wanna be made over

Paint me red, paint me green
Give me liberty, wash me clean
Make me over, make me nice
Cause when I'm done, Lord, I wanna be right

Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over

Make me smart, make me king
Give a lot, give me steam
I want eternal beauty, spiritual things
Cause when I'm done, yes I wanna be a good thing

Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over

I wanna go places, I wanna do some things
I wanna be a star, I wanna have a big name
But in my heart, let beauty reign
And when I'm done, I wanna have fame

Lord make me nice, Lord make me good
Give me power, give me love
I wanna be desireable, voluptous, tantalising

Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Oh Lord
Make me over, I wanna be made over
I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over
Make me over, I wanna be made over

Review from Coffeedemon
The soundtrack to the fantastic film of the same name, this album is full of great songs. Okay, some of them are new versions of old Ike & Tina classics, but that doesn't detract from either the original songs or the film soundtrack.
If you want a "best of" Tina or Ike & Tina, then go buy a compilation album, but if you loved the film and/or Tina's voice you'll love this.

    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.
