Lyrics to 'Simply The Best' by Tina Turner: I call you, when I need you my heart's on fire You come to me, come to me, wild and wild You come to me Give me everything I need Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams 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 These music videos are from the beginning of her comeback in 1984 with the release of her hugely successful album private dancer.

Originally released in 1991 and gaining multi-platinum sales around the world, ‘Simply The Best’ spent over two years in the UK charts and is one of the best-selling best-of compilations of all time. It includes a re-recording of "The Best" as a duet with Jimmy Barnes, which was retitled "(Simply) The Best" and was released as a single, as well as a fourth new song called "I'm a Lady", which was released in other regions as the B-side to "Love Thing".
