Addicted To Love (1988)

Tina Turner - Addicted To Love - Single

Addicted To Love is a rock song originally from Robert Palmer, which became his signature song. Tina covered it for her Break Every Rule tv special, but never recorded a studio version. Two years later, the song was released as the first single from the album Live In Europe in England, instead of Nutbush City Limits in Germany. The over ten minutes version of the b-side song „Legs“ was previously unreleased, recorded live in Europe in 1985. Tina used the ZZ Top cover song as an encore at her Private Dancer Tour and once again at the What’s Love? Live Tour in 1993. The single was not released in Germany and America.
