Tina Turner & Elisa – Teach Me Again – 2006

The last time Tina Turner topped the charts was in 2006. Tina & Italian pop star Elisa released the single Teach Me Again which went to number one on the music charts in Italy, and which was a minor success in a few other European countries. The song was recorded for the soundtrack of the movie All The Invisible Children, which consists of seven short films about the struggles of children around the world, made by seven famous international directors. Elisa is one of the biggest pop stars of Italy, and many of her songs went to number one, including her duet with Tina.

Lyrics

What’s it to walk on a silent road,
To be thirsty and wait for – wait for the rain?
What is it like?

You wake me up with a ray of light,
Tell me a joke and if you don’t know one, never mind!
Can’t we just look at the sun

And live a lifetime in a day
Like some butterflies? Not quite the same!
A lifetime in a day
In which we learn to fly out of our cage!

So what is the smell of summer like? And
What is the sound of your heart when you’re running? And
What is to be fearless like? And
What is to have nothing in mind but plenty of space?

In this place there’s the law of the strongest
But we confuse the weak with the one that
Makes big mistakes
And the strong with the perfect

And live a lifetime in a day,
Like some butterflies? Not quite the same!
A lifetime in a day,
In which we learn to fly out of this cage!

So what is the smell of summer like? And
What is the sound of your heart when you’re running? And
What is to be fearless like? And
What is to have nothing in mind but plenty of space?

Teach me again! Teach me again!
Teach me again! Teach me again!
Please..

    Absolutely beautiful, i do not understand why this song did not get alot of air play in america, it is absolutely beautiful. The idea of a tribute to children who have been forgotten and for adults to understand that kids take care of themselves and each other naturally. Please re-release, this is a must.

    • Agree, it fits well with Tina’s current Children Beyond. But maybe the fact that Elisa is unknown in the US helps. I don’t think the movie was a big success either.

  2. Well, I’ve always liked this song very, very much. There’s also an instrumental version (it runs about 2:35 or something), for those who don’t know. Worth listening.

    Very special subject: children… Maybe the idea of Children Beyond started from here… or maybe not. The song: soft but with a message (nice lyrics), like children. The video: both singers being confortable with each other, which is nice so watch. It gave me curiosity to watch the film, which I will. Thanks. Nice moments again.

    Me gustó mucho la letra y su melodía, es conmovedora y Tina siempre suena muy bien, ella, la Sra. Tina realiza todo con mucho profesionalismo, y el duo con Elisa salió muy bien.
