Tina Turner - Why Must We Wait Until Tonight - Single

Why Must We Wait Until Tonight? was taken from the soundtrack album and movie What’s Love Got To Do With It and was released as the second single in America and Germany and the third one in the UK in 1993. The song was written and produced by Bryan Adams and remixed by Tony Dofat. The wonderful black and white music video is only available on the Simply The Best Video-CD from 1994. During the American leg of the What’s Love? Tour, Tina did a live video recording at one of her concerts, but this version was never officially released. As a special bonus, a limited edition CD single with a full colour poster was available in the UK.

Follow-up to the recent top 10 smash "I Don’t Wanna Fight" is a pleading ballad that derives much of its drama and intensity from La Tina’s incomparable vocal style. Plunking piano/synth riffs click over a shuffling and percussive beat, with just a subtle touch of Hammond organ here and there to provide a blues subtext. Excellent cut from the soundtrack of "What’s Love Got To Do With It" deserves instant acceptance at top 40 and AC formats.
