Tina’s ‘Summer Of Soul’ on Arte

Franco-German channel Arte is once again putting Tina Turner at honor, two years after the “Summer of Girls” series. Earlier this month, they broadcast “Simply The Best” documentary and mentioned Ike & Tina several time during their “History of Soul” series.

To conclude this season of “Summer of Soul”, Arte will broadcast Tina Turner’s biopic “What’s Love Got To Do With It” on August 18, 2013.  A well chosen moment with the media attention that Tina just got from her marriage with Erwin Bach and her upcoming appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter.

Plus watch  Ike & Tina Turner performing Proud Mary on “Soul Train”, on the 22nd of April 1972 in HD!

  1. AMAZING, THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY PERFORMANCES THAT CONTINUED TO ATTRACT ME TO TINA AND IKE AND THE IKETTES. I JUST LOVED THIS TYPE OF ENERGY AT MY AGE 14 THEN AND 55 TODAY, LOVE .

  2. Wow what a great quality…. But there is something negative she seems to express in this video. It can just be me, of course.

    Proud Mary Lyrics:

    Y’ know, every now and then
    I think you might like to hear something from us
    Nice and easy
    But there’s just one thing
    You see we never ever do nothing
    Nice and easy
    We always do it nice and rough
    So we’re gonna take the beginning of this song
    And do it easy
    Then we’re gonna do the finish rough
    This is the way we do “proud mary”

    And we’re rolling, rolling, rolling on the river
    Listen to the story

    I left a good job in the city
    Working for the man every night and day
    And I never lost one minute of sleeping
    Worrying ’bout the way things might have been

    Big wheel keep on turning
    Proud mary keep on burning
    And we’re rolling, rolling
    Rolling on the river

    Cleaned a lot of plates in memphis
    Pumped a lot of tane down in new orleans
    But I never saw the good side of the city
    Till I hitched a ride on a riverboat queen

    Big wheel keep on turning
    Proud mary keep on burning
    And we’re rolling, rolling
    Rolling on the river

    If you come down to the river
    I bet you gonna find some people who live
    You don’t have to worry if you got no money
    People on the river are happy to give
