TINA: Single

Disco Inferno (1993)

Tina Turner - Disco Inferno - Single

Disco Inferno was originally released from The Trammps in 1976, which reached #16 in England. Tina performed the song live in her early solo concerts, but never recorded a studio version - until 1993 for the soundtrack album What's Love Got To Do With It. Released as the second single in the UK, it charted four places higher than The Trammps version. The song was also on the setlist of her What's Love? Tour, but Tina performed it unfortunately only at a few concerts, like at opening night in Reno. A live version is available on the What’s Love? (30th Anniversary Edition) and on the Wild Lady of Rock home video with a version from her earlier concerts. The single was not released in Germany and America.

The music video was filmed like a live performance with Tina dressed in a black trouser and top on stage of her What’s Love? Tour together with her female dancers and the band. But in fact, Tina is lip-syncing the song. The clip is available in two different versions, the original version from 1993 with scenes from the movie in between and the 2023 Re-Edit without this scenes but with additional live footage from the concert in San Bernardino. The original video was never released on home video.
