TINA: Single

Girl's (1987)

Tina Turner - Girl's - Single

Girl’s is a wonderful ballad, written by David Bowie and with Phil Collins on the drums. It was taken from the album Break Every Rule, released with the same cover picture and the same b-side track as the single What You Get Is What You See only in some European countries. Tina performed the song live at her Break Every Rule Tour, a live version is available on the Live In Europe album from 1988. In contrast to the labeling on the single, the record contains an edited version of the song „Take Me To The River“. A slightly longer version is only available on some Break Every Rule single releases.

The music video shows Tina very sexy with a strapless dress, sitting on a sofa, placed on a big round platform. While she holds a microphone and performs the song, several female models (including a young Naomi Campbell) walking slowly to Tina and sitting next to her. At the end, the camera zooms out and shows the whole stage. The video was first released on the Break Every Rule home video as a bonus. In 2022, a remastered version was included into the Break Every Rule (Deluxe Edition) on DVD.
