The Top Ten
1 Private Dancer
2 What's Love Got to Do with It

The Best is not the best. What's Love Got to Do with It is just fantastic! It speaks the truth! I would say The Best, although it's used for sectarian celebrations in Scottish Football (Rangers).

3 We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)

One of my favorite songs from the '80s. Tina showed a brilliant performance, and the song itself is a masterpiece. It should have won the Oscar for Best Soundtrack Song.

My personal favorite track from the amazing Tina. Great lyrics, impressive vocals. Tina is special.

4 The Best

The way Tina sings it, and because she is the best.

Love this song of Tina. The best.

5 River Deep, Mountain High

One of the greatest songs of all time! High energy, a wild arrangement, and one of the hugest sounds ever heard on a record, with a vocal that triumphs the massive sound and hits all the right places. It hasn't aged one bit. Play it LOUD!

How is this not number one? This is obviously the best song Tina ever recorded. Listen to the power of her voice. It stops you dead in your tracks. One of the best songs ever recorded!

Tina's best song ever, so powerful. Hear it on the London 45 for maximum impact. It sounds like an earthquake, and Tina's voice burns through the enormous sound.

6 Better Be Good to Me
7 Proud Mary

I normally don't like remakes, but this one is the best. I like it even better than the original.

Proud Mary and Nutbush City Limit are the ultimate Tina Turner songs (for me, anyway). Funky!

Try jiving to the "rough" part of this song. Whoo! Great workout. Amazing song.

8 Two People

I love that song - something slow and mellow. A contrast from what she did with Ike.

9 Love Explosion
10 One of the Living

Tina's BEST song, in my opinion. The "other" song from Mad Max. Tina at her best!

The Contenders
11 Let's Stay Together
12 Typical Male

Confidence, groove, and right in the pocket. Absolutely a legend in full steam.

13 Goldeneye

Such an amazing song! The theme to one of the best James Bond movies ever created!

14 It’s Only Love

Tina and Bryan singing together is just one of the best things ever!

15 Show Some Respect
16 What You Get Is What You See
17 Nutbush City Limit

Tina wrote this song and changed the music industry with it. Fans want and expect to hear it in every performance. This is where fans really learn about her and merge with her. They are able to take a real piece of Tina with them from this song. THIS IS HER SONG.

I always vote for Proud Mary, so I'm making a change. Three songs by Tina that possess phenomenal energy are: Nutbush City Limit, Proud Mary, and River Deep, Mountain High. The need to dance to all of these is so great. She is an amazing performer.

18 Addicted to Love
19 I Don't Wanna Lose You
20 I Don't Wanna Fight

So much beauty and emotion as expected from Tina Turner. A great track from the biopic "What's Love Got to Do with It." Throw in the memorable synth track, and you have a marvelous piece that really tugs on your heartstrings.

This is one of my favorite songs from her. She has a beautiful, powerful voice!

21 Break Every Rule
22 Whatever You Want
23 Cose Della Vita
24 On Silent Wings
25 When the Heartache is Over

Helped me see the absurdity of pining over a love that was not meant to be. Tina and her presentation of this song healed me.
