Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

February 17th, 2008 at 10:31pm

This week’s award goes to Tina Turner, and the feature song is “Simply The Best”. I recall when it was the theme song for Australian Rugby League and the accompanying video was of Tina Turner singing the song on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, I think that was probably the best promotion the ARL or related bodies have produced for rugby league.

Tim Webster also played this song a few weeks ago, and when he did that I finally understood what Wayne Mac was referring to when he was talking about the great sound of music pumping through an AM radio…this song really does sound fantastic on AM radio.

I call you when I need you, my heart’s on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wild
When you come to me
Give me everything I need

Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
And it can’t be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong baby

You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I’m here in your arms I could be in no better place

You’re simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
Oh, I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Oh, Tear us apart (no no no), baby I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You’re walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I’m alone
Oh baby, don’t let go

Oh, you’re the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I ever met
Oh, I’m stuck on your heart, I hang on every word you say
Oh, Tear us apart (no no), baby I would rather be dead
Oh, you’re the best

Samuel
