Tina Turner - Why Must We Wait Until Tonight - Music Video

Billboard - September 04, 1993

Follow-up to the recent top 10 smash „I Don’t Wanna Fight“ is a pleading ballad that derives much of its drama and intensity from La Tina’s incomparable vocal style. Plunking piano/synth riffs click over a shuffling and percussive beat, with just a subtle touch of Hammond organ here and there to provide a blues subtext. Excellent cut from the soundtrack of „What’s Love Got To Do With It“ deserves instant acceptance at top 40 and AC formats.
