What's love got to do with it - Tina Turner

"What's Love Got To Do With It"

You must understand
That the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it`s only the thrill
Of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract

It`s physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore
That it means more than that

Oh whats love got to do, got to do with it
What`s love but a second hand emotion
What`s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart
When a heart can be broken

It may seem to you
That i`m acting confused
When you`re close to me
If i tend to look dazed
I`ve read it someplace
I`ve got cause to be

There`s a name for it
There`s a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason
You do it for me


I`ve been thinking of a new direction
But i have to say
I`ve been thinking about my own protection
It scares me to feel this way

What`s love got to do, got to do with it
What`s love but a sweet old fashioned notion
What`s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

Tina Turner - Topic in New York Times

Tina Turner is a one-person summation of a huge chunk of rock-and-roll history. She is the female incarnation of an important strain of rock culture that embraces southern gospel-rock, Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. Miss Turner's raw, rending vocal delivery, in which the voice often seems to tear itself apart without ever actually disintegrating, also encompasses the red-hot mama, blues-meets-rock-and-roll tradition embodied by Janis Joplin. And in pure show business terms her provocative self-presentation - with heavily teased dark gold wig, prancing the stage in spiked high heels, and her friendly rock-and-roll sneer - have served as an inspiration for male rockers like Mick Jagger and Rod Stewart. In a very real sense, she did more to invent them than vice versa...
