Way Of The World - the new single and video from Tina Turner. The greatest hits album „Simply The Best“ includes the glittering highlights of an unrivaled showbiz career, featuring fifteen of Tina Turner's greatest songs, including world hits like „What's Love Got To Do With It,“ „Private Dancer“ and „Typical Male“. In addition, we also find three brandnew titles, which Tina presents for the first time on this album. One of these new tracks is Way Of The World, a catchy midtempo number by Albert Hammond and Graham Lyle. The two top authors have already written some of Tina’s greatest chart successes - individually and collectively - just remember the title „I Don’t Wanna Lose You,“ which they wrote together as well.

Music Video

The music video was released in two slightly different versions for the American and European market. It was directed by the famous photographer Herb Ritts, filmed in black and white. It shows an absolutely gorgeous looking Tina between scenes of a man and a woman, lying in water, walking outside of some buildings in 'Bauhaus' style and playing around in a desert. Both clips are available on the LaserDisc edition of the Simply The Best video collection, but are still waiting for a release on DVD. In 1992, the video received a „Goldene Kamera“ award in the category „Music Video of the Year“ in Germany.
