TINA: Song

Help

is a song from the Beatles, written in 1965 for the same named movie and soundtrack album. Released as a single, it reached #1 in America and England. Tina Turner covered the song first in 1981, when she recorded it at Studio 55 in Los Angeles with Richard Perry, but this version stayed unreleased. Later, she recorded it again with The Crusaders and after the success of Let’s Stay Together, it was released as the follow-up single in 1984 to promote Tina's ongoing UK-Tour. It was also included into the tracklist of her album Private Dancer in Europe. Tina performed the song live at most of her concert tours, available on many home videos and the album Live In Europe.
