Listening to Tina Turner’s music isn’t just fun, games and dancing! You learn some important life lessons along the way. Inside this post the twelve most important things you can learn from listening to Tina. Find the answers to your must burning questions, such as: ‘who is doing what?’, ‘what about snuggling up in the back seat?’ and of course ‘what’s love got to do with?’!
“You gotta watch, what you’re puttin’ down”
Oh, if you ever pass that church house, gin house, school house and outhouse in ol’ Nutbush – you better watch what you’re puttin’ down. Because before you know it you might end up in jail, where all you’ll get is salt pork and molasses!
“Music keeps me dancin'”
When you go out dancing, all you need is some music (preferably sweet soul music). Why you ask? Well, music takes you higher, it’s the fire to the soul.
“You better show some respect!”
OK, Aretha might have already told us (well actually, it was Otis). However, some repetition never hurt anyone. Sometimes in life, all it takes is a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
“It’s just the thrill of boy meeting girl, opposites attract”
And you just have to ignore that it means more than that! So, tell me, what’s love got to do with it? Do you know?
“Everything is gonna be alright, tonight”
Well that’s easy for you to say Tina – you got David Bowie in your arms!
“The future is this moment, and not some place out there”
Sometimes, when work sucks, your fridge is empty, the rain is pouring down and your dog looks terribly ill… it’s good to remember that paradise is here. Time to stop your crying.
“Two people got to stick together”
Love one another, save it for a rainy day. Indeed it only takes two to tango.
“There’s something about a confrontation on the back road, breaks down the defense”
Oh yeah, there’s something about snuggling up in the back seat. And it’s cheaper than wining and dining all night too! Those steamy windows? Definitely coming from the body heat!
“There’s not enough romance in this world”
We gotta keep believing that hungry hearts run free. Everybody needs some good loving.
“You know who, is doing you know what”
You know, don’t you? About who? He is doing you know what! Aha!
“When you do the things you do, they gotta come from the heart”
Because when you do what you do without love, it just don’t mean a thing! Nothing! Nada! Zip!
“Big wheels keep on turnin’, Proud Mary keeps on burnin'”
And when all is lost, you don’t know what to do, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide: think of that one certainty in life. The river boat queen is still rolling down that river. And we’re rollin’… rollin’… rollin’…!
