Break Every Rule is the very successful follow-up album to Private Dancer with no less than seven singles. With this album, Tina reached for the first time #1 on the German album charts and remained there for 9 weeks. It’s more pop orientated than its predecessor and includes no cover versions. All first five songs were written and produced by Graham Lyle and Terry Britten, the team behind the 1984 hit single What's Love Got To Do With It. Tina performed most of the songs live at her Break Every Rule Tour, available on the album Live In Europe from 1988. For promotion, Capitol Records released a Radio Interview, in which Tina speaks about the new album.
