“Acid Queen” – Tina Turner (from Ken Russell’s 1975 film of the “The Who’s Tommy”)

Video

From Ken Russell’s wonderfully bats–t crazy and psychedelic visualization of The Who’s rock opera “Tommy,” is Tina Turner’s wild version of “Acid Queen.” Even wilder was that both David Bowie and Lou Reed were considered for the part eventually played by Turner. Due to heavy drug and sex references, not safe for work. However, I should note that this was a PG-rated film back in 1975. My how things have changed.

“I’m Yours (Use Me Any You Wanna)” – Ike and Tina Turner

Yes, this song is more than a little creepy these days given what we all now know of Ike & Tina’s personal relationship. But sweet lord, is this a great song! If anyone wants to say the best Ike & Tina song is “Proud Mary,” “Nutbush City Limits,” “A Fool in Love,” or “River Deep Mountain High,” I would not give that person any crap. But this, in my opinion, was their greatest track.
