Roger brought me a demo of ''What's Love Got to Do with It'' and we immediately clashed because I didn't like the song, not one bit. It was certainly not what Rod Stewart or The Rolling Stones would sing, I argued. Roger disagreed. He took me to the studio to meet with the songwriter, Terry Britten. Terry understood what I was saying. Then I decided to show him some respect. I sang his words, but did it my way, forcefully, with gravity and raw emotion. I heard in my voice what Roger was imagining in his head. - Tina Turner

''With ''What's Love Got to Do With It'' I think I spoke to all the people who dream of getting a second chance and work tirelessly to make that dream come true.'' - Tina Turner

My very favorite I was 13 when my parents bought me the album.I played it over and over. Then later on I acted it out in talent contest in several places and was very shocked that I won 9 out of 11 places I entered. I love her and her story the woman she became on her own after all the hell and pain she served . she is a beautiful woman inside and out. I still listen to her music to this very day.

The original recording of this song was by the band Bucks Fizz. Tina's version vastly improved this somg and gave it more emotion and feeling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGU8usqzgrg
