  • Lyrics
  • Adams wrote this song with Jim Vallance, who he collaborated with on many of his early songs. It's a duet with Tina Turner, and it helped propel her comeback. Adams performed the song with Turner when he was a supporting act on her "Private Dancer" tour.

    When we asked Adams what his most memorable collaboration was, he replied, "Working with Tina Turner was amazing. I used to go to see her in the clubs when I was in my late teens/early 20s before she hit the big time. It was incredible to watch her. Amazingly when we toured together years later, I never saw Tina walk through a performance, she always put on a great show, and was gracious and grateful to her audience. It was such a privilege to have sung with her, especially since I was only 24 at the time." (Check out our interview with Bryan Adams.)
  • This won for Best Stage Performance at the third annual MTV Video Music Awards.

  • Edward from Foster City, MiPeople will hate me for saying this but I've never liked this song. Both Adams and Tina Turner have "gravelly" voices which I hate. So to me the combination of them together is like nails on a chalkboard. The lyrics are all right but I can't stand listening to it.
