Tina Turner Thursday

The only US hit from Tina Turner’s 1995 Wildest Dreams album, Missing You is a superb cover of an old John Waite hit. Ms. Turner really turns it on with this one. She is the queen of rock n’ roll and when she lets loose on tracks like this one no one can question her decades long reign at the top of her craft.

Shot in black and white, the video for Missing You shows Tina doing what she does best. The choreography is just matchless and her searing vocals never sounded more pristine than they do on this cut. A song like Missing You seems like it was written for a powerhouse vocalist like Tina in the first place. The song, the singer, the arrangement, the video, all came together in a brilliant flash of pop music history.

Enjoy! Missing You and Tina Turner will get your attention and keep it. This one is a true masterpiece.
