1993 - Why must we wait until tonight? 7 Inch Single

"Why Must We Wait Until Tonight" is a single from Tina Turner's album "What’s Love Got To Do With It?". This song was written and produced by Tina’s old time friend Bryan Adams and his co worker Robert John Lange.

"Why Must We Wait Until Tonight" is a sensual R&B love song. The song is about making love and why should they wait until tonight? This song is a different kind of R&B song and not the kind we were used to. Tina’s vocal sure shines like the sun again, although most people really should consider to listen to it when the moon is up.

Here is the official video for the song.

 

 

We haven’t got any promotional tv show performances of this song. As far as we know it doesn’t exist. Tina has performed it live on certain venues during the What’s Love Live Tour 1993/1994.
We do have a video of Tina performing it live but not singing live. It was shot in San Bernadino 1993. The video served as a second promotion video for the song. This concert was officially released on VHS. We still hope they will release it on dvd or Blu Ray.

 

 

The B-side of this 7" is "Shake A Tail Feather" (Album Version).

"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

"Shake A Tail Feather"
Shake a tail feather

Single: So Fine - Ike and Tina Turner (originally from The Five Du-Tones) - 1968

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

    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.
