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.
