Addicted To Love is a rock song written by Robert Palmer, which became his signature song. Tina covered it live for her Break Every Rule tv special, but never recorded a studio version. Two years later, the song was released as the first single from the album Live In Europe in the UK, instead of Nutbush City Limits in Germany. The over ten minutes version of the b-side song „Legs“ was previously unreleased and recorded live in Europe in 1985. Tina used the ZZ Top cover song as an encore at her Private Dancer tour and once again at the What’s Love? Live tour in 1993.
The music video, directed by David Mallet and produced by Scott Millaney, was taken from the Break Every Rule home video. It shows Tina in her distinctive red mini dress on stage together with her band. It is available on the Simply The Best video collection on DVD.
Released in March 1988 in Europe from Capitol Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl and 5“ CD, Addicted To Love reached #28 in The Netherlands and #71 in England. The single was not released in Germany and America.
