Way Of The World is a wonderful ballad and the second single from Tina’s greatest hits compilation Simply The Best. The music video was released in two different versions, an U.S. version and a slightly different „Anglo Cut“ for Europe. Both videos are available on the LaserDisc release of the Simply The Best video collection. Although Tina never performed the song on any tour, a live version is available from the tv show „Top of the Pops“ from 1991.

Released November 1991 in Europe and January 1992 in America on the Capitol / EMI label on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, cassette and 5“ CD, Way Of The World reached #13 in England, #31 in Europe and #33 in Germany. It was also a #5 airplay hit in Europe. In 1992, Tina received for the video the award „Goldene Kamera“ in the category „Music Video of the Year“ in Germany.
