Promo Interview

Tina Turner

The title of that got to me - Undercover Agent. It sounds like a great movie as well. I’m always liking those sort of agent movies and the spies and all of that and I thought "Oh what a great video. Immediately.“ I’m not a commercially thinking person. I think immediately the performance of it. Oh the video would make a great hum, hum… I’m already gone producing it for what the video would be, of what it would be like to perform in the promotion of it. I just thought it was so great, that was lying there. It said something about "it must have been a season for the fools". There’s always seasons - the summer, the spring. Who would ever think up…his words. Every single line. I would like the people to read Tony Joe’s words. They’re just such…they’re so real and that’s what got me as well.
