Tina Turner

Politics and Music

Hillary Clinton spoke first tonight, in New York. When she was done, they played Tina Turner's Simply the Best. When Barack Obama finished up in St. Paul, Bruce Springsteen's The Rising could be heard.

Simply the Best goes like this...

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wild
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong baby

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead
