Tina Turner - What's Love Got To Do With It (1984)

Tina Turner rose to prominence with her certainly not better half in the 1960s.  Her powerful voice, captivating stage presence and a pair of legs that most likely influenced ZZ Top easily made her the standout of the duo.   Although she fell on hard times during the 70s, Tina made a huge comeback in the mid-1980s with Private Dancer.  The album spawned a string of hit singles including her most popular - What's Love Got To Do With It.  For the video, Tina strolls the streets of New York interacting with a pre-famous Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Springsteen's sister.  The song would later lend it's name to Tina's biopic What's Love Got To Do With It (1993).
