The Best was originally released in 1989 as the lead single from the album Foreign Affair. The song became the theme tune for the New South Wales Rugby League in Australia in the early 90’s, promoted from Tina several times with tv commercials and two exclusive releases featuring remixed versions, only available in Australia. This Grand Final Edition from 1993 was available as a basic edition, a collectors edition with a gatefold cover and a numbered edtion limited to 3.000 copies. Tina performed also The Best on stage at the Grand Final in Sydney's football stadium on September 26, together with her saxophonist Timmy Cappello. After the match, she presented the victor's trophy to Allan Langer and joined in Brisbane's post-game victory song. The next weeks, Tina continued performing with concerts of her What’s Love? Tour in Australia and New Zealand.
