River Deep Mountain High

One of the greatest rock and roll anthems of all time:

Watching this video, and watching Tina Turner in her various other incarnations, she seems the personification of a wild woman, untamed and fierce and indomitable. Hard to believe that as a young woman she would just passively let Ike Turner beat the crap out of her on a regular basis.

This video is from Tina's early days; the background dancing is dated but still very cool-looking, and very evocative of the 60's.

I remember listening to that!

The link is gone. This is probably the same video:
with some great comments.

Nate --
Yes, that is the same video, thank you very much.

Watching it right now, it still evokes the same euphoria.
