I had forgot that song until I saw your post.  My favorite version sang by Tina Turner. Great photos smile

hi Camellia, thanks for dropping by...
I'm a huge fan of Tina Turner all the way from the early beginnings ("nutbush city limits" and such) but this song... I somehow think first of Cassandra Wilson (shame on me)
Anyway - thanks to your comment - I searched Spotify and came up with a little list that i hope you'll enjoy

here goes the link in all sorts of versions

Let’s see if I remember the reply I’d written here:

 

“Hello Camellia, thanks for visiting!

 

Although I’m a huge fan of Tina Turner from the early beginnings (the era
of “Nutbush city limits”...) somehow I associate this song with Cassandra
Wilson

 

Anyway I explored Spotify and made a playlist of the song...

Hope you enjoy it!”

Who knew there were so many versions of this tune. I thank you for putting the playlist together. I personally  don't really care for Cassandra Wilson's version ( I did notice you had several of her's  listed....trying to persuade me ? ;) ) I do like Seal's version, Tina Turner's and Eruption's wasn't bad either a bit more up beat. Thanks for taking the time. BTW I don't know what happened to your first response but I never saw it. :)

Spotify makes the list with versions w/ slight differences or by being part of a different album... I did see more than one sellection by the Wilson lady :)

thanks for visiting, Paul... I mean my blog and my city :)))

with photoshop and such tools I've seen photos of Porto with so much color that it looks just like any other place... that's been similarly altered

Porto has a special mood that is grey and sometimes gloomy and that's what i tried to remind us with these pics
