P hase One of Tina Turner’s plan to destroy everything cool, Phase Two being the Mad Max franchise. (Thank God her fifteen hundred minutes fizzled before she could get to The Simpsons.) In fairness, David Bowie was dueting this to himself: Bing Crosby, Queen, Giorgio Moroder, Tina Turner, Mick Jagger, Pat Metheny. Unless he was trying to get cast in the next Death Wish movie, you have to wonder what he was thinking. However, in the morning after Tonight, the title track and “Tumble And Twirl” still held their luster. Yes, “Tonight” is technically a cover tune, but here it’s more a favor being returned. “Tumble And Twirl” bears the audible influence of Let’s Dance, and stands as a relative highpoint on an otherwise low album. On the seven-inch, the songs are identical to the elpee versions; the 12-inch tinkers with them.
