Hit verbalista za ovu nedelju je pesma Proud Mary koja je Tinu vinula u nebesa.
Pesmu Proud Mary napisao je američki kantautor i multi instrumentalista Džon Fogerti, član poznatog benda iz 60′ tih Creedence Clearwater Revival. Pesma je postala veliki hit u Americi 1968. godine. Samo dve godine kasnije Ajk i Tina Tarner rešili su da je prepevaju. Ostalo je istorija. Poslušajmo izvođenje ove pesme sa jednog od Tininih koncerata…
Tina Turner first covered “Proud Mary” in 1970 with her husband at the time, Ike Turner. The Ike & Tina Turner version was released as a single from their Workin’ Together album and has become one of Tina’s most recognizable signature songs.
The song started off with a slow, sultry tone in which Tina introduced the song and warned them that they were gonna start it off “nice and easy” as “we never do nothing nice and easy” but said they would finish it “nice and rough”. After the lyrics are first sung softly by the Turners, the song is then turned into a funk rock vamp with Turner and assorted background singers delivering soulful vocals.
