Let’s Dance – With David Bowie
“Let’s Dance” is the title-track from English singer David Bowie’s 1983 album of the same name. It was also released as the first single from that album in 1983 and went on to become one of his biggest-selling tracks. Stevie Ray Vaughan played the guitar solo at the end of the song.
The single was one of Bowie’s fastest selling, entering the UK Singles Chart at No. 5 on its first week of release, staying at the top of the charts for three weeks. Soon afterwards, the single topped the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Bowie’s second and last single to reach number-one in the U.S. In Oceania, it narrowly missed topping the Australian charts, peaking at No. 2, but peaked at number-one for 4 consecutive weeks in New Zealand. The single became one of the best selling of the year across North America, Central Europe and Oceania.
Cose Della Vita – With Eros Ramazzotti
Cose Della Vita was originally released in 1993 from Eros Ramazzotti as a single. In 1998, he re-recorded it together with Tina for his greatest hits album „Eros,“ retitled as „Cose Della Vita (Can’t Stop Thinking of You)“ with Eros part in Italian and Tina’s self-written part in English. Eros also recorded a Spanish version with Turner’s English vocals, called „Cosas De La Vida“. A live version was released on Eros album Eros Live the same year, recorded at his Eros & Friends Tour, where Tina was a guest vocalist at some concerts. The music video is available as a bonus on the All The Best home video.
