Tina Turner is not only a legend – she’s also just what we need to perk us up as winter rolls in. We’ve compiled the ultimate Tina Turner playlist so we can all spend the chilly evenings in, rocking out to her power ballads and anthems.

1. River Deep – Mountain High

We feel like we’re on top of the world listening to this 1966 hit. Fun fact: in 1999, this song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.


2. Proud Mary

There is just no way you can stop yourself dancing while listening to Tina’s 1988 version of this classic, featuring Ike Turner.


3. Private Dancer

The title track from her 1984 album is sultry and sexy. Can you even deal with the fashion in the music video?


4. GoldenEye

Are we the only ones who hum and mumble through all the lyrics until it’s time to belt out ‘GoldenEye’? This has got to be one of the best Bond songs ever.


5. What’s Love Got To Do With It

Oh, the feels… And oh, her big, big hair in the music video.

Honourable mentions

Our hearts can barely handle one legend. But when legends come together, we’re absolutely dead. Here are our favourite collabs between Tina and other music royalty.

1. Shame, Shame, Shame with Cher in 1975.

2. Proud Mary at the Grammys with Beyoncé in 2008.

3. Live in Europe with David Bowie in 1985.

4. It Takes Two with Rod Stewart in 1990.
