Tina Turner - Whatever You Want - Single

Whatever You Want was the first single from the album Wildest Dreams in Europe, including some remixed versions from Todd Terry and Arthur Baker and is noted for it’s complex orchestral arrangement and production. Tina promoted the song at several TV-Shows and used it as the opening number at her Wildest Dreams Tour. A live version is available on the Live In Amsterdam home video from 1997. The CD digipack includes also remixed versions from the Massive Attack cover song Unfinished Sympathy, which was the encore song at the beginning of the tour. The single was not released in America.

The music video is very futuristic and features Tina standing with a long dress in a round hall with 'Matrix' like special effects surrounding her. It was released as a special bonus on the Live In Amsterdam home video and is available on Tina’s official YouTube channel.

The diva of soul makes sure to keep up with time; she will not be caught lagging behind. The production by Horn ensures both a contemporary techno sound, as well as the classic orchestration a voice like Tina's deserves.
