Open Arms is the first single from Tina’s greatest hits compilation All The Best in Europe and a promo record in America. Tina performed the song live at several tv shows but produced no music video. The enhanced interview footage from the CD single is a promotion interview for the All The Best album in which Tina speaks about the album tracks. Open Arms features backing vocals from KT Tunstall and Estelle. Because Tina produced no music video for this single, the live performance from the UK tv show „Parkinson“ on October 23, 2004 was released as a bonus on the All The Best home video in 2005.
