Tina Turner, Private Dancer (1984).



Boy, what an album! Seven singles and all the songs are landmarks in Rock-Pop History. I choose this story-song wrote by Mark Knopfler (he has some crush from Private stuff, like Private Investigations).  


The song was ready for Dire Straits' Love Over Gold when Knopfler thought that it was not suitable for him to be sung. Sometime later, the song was offered to Tina Turner.



This version was recorded by many of the Dire Straits band members, with a replacement of the drummer and Knopfler. This time the guitar is Jeff Beck. Not a bad replacement, don't you think?


And Tina Turner took the song and reached to the top. She is amazing giving life to a song and this is not an exception. From then on, she would always be considered as the Queen of Pop.


(M. Knopfler) 



Producer: Carter 



Albums: Private Dancer (84), Simply The Best (91), The Collected Recordings (94) 







All the men come in these places 



And the men are all the same 



You don't look at their faces 



And you don't ask their names 



You don't think of them as human 



You don't think of them at all 



You keep your mind on the money 



Keeping your eyes on the wall 







I'm your private dancer, a dancer for money 



I'll do what you want me to do 



I'm your private dancer, a dancer for money 



And any old music will do 







I want to make a million dollars 



I wanna live out by the sea 



Have a husband and some children 



Yeah, I guess I want a family 



All the men come in these places 



And the men are all the same 



You don't look at their faces 



And you don't ask their names 







I'm your private dancer, a dancer for money 



I'll do what you want me to do 



I'm your private dancer, a dancer for money 



And any old music will do 







Deutch marks or dollars 



American Express will do nicely, thank you 



Let me loosen up your collar 



Tell me, do you wanna see me do the shimmy again?

la mezcla de la Turner y el Knopfler fue explosiva

Valentín VN said...

Muchas gracias, Juan. Ahora queda darle más usabilidad.

Y fue una mezcla inesperada. A los dos los engrandeció.

He tardado en venir a tu blog, que he estado semana y media sin venir. ¿La guitarra era de Beck? No lo sabía.
No tengo el disco (sólo tengo uno recopilatorio de Tina) pero la canción está muy bien y recuerdo lo que pegó cuando salió.
Me voy a ver entradas de días anteriores.
un saludo.

Viendo el vídeo...La de tiempo que hace que no veía esto. Jo!

Valentín VN said...

Gracias por tu vista, David.

Menudo guitarrista se buscaron para sustituir a Knopfler, ¿verdad?

Esto de los rollos de las compañías discográficas y el dejar o no tocar a sus músicos es un verdadero fastidio. Hay cosas que no tienen ningún sentido.

Y sí, hace mucho que se hizo el video y que lo vimos nosotros en televisión cuando aún era una novedad. ¡Qué mayores nos hace!
