Fabulous Friday

Tina Turner's 1995 album Wildest Dreams didn't make a huge splash here in the US. Aside from the single Missing You, which became quite popular on radio, the CD just didn't catch fire like her previous efforts. In the UK and Europe however it was a sensation. Going double platinum in England alone, it spawned several hit singles and propelled Tina onto yet another record breaking concert tour in 1996. Since then I have come to regard Wildest Dreams as one of my favorite Tina Turner albums. It's that good and it continues to appeal to listeners fifteen years after it's initial release.

One of my favorite tracks from this album, Something Beautiful Remains is a classy ballad that Ms. Turner delivers with all the zest and beauty in her repertoire. The single was another hit on the European front and recently I discovered a music video on You Tube that Tina shot for the single's promotion. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece. Enjoy.
