Tina Turner with the saxophone in the background made it successful back in 1989 but "Simply the best" was originally recorded by Bonnie Tyler a year before with the song label "The Best". Isn't it funny how the best can be someone elses?

Definitely. But Tina Turner certainly created the best out of "The Best" ....

I didn't realize she recorded it first.

OK, here's something to compare her performance with. I prefer Tina Turner. How about you?

Thank you both for sharing those vids. I just find it amazing how the same song sung by two performers can be so different almost to the point of meaning something totally opposite... of course the graphical part of the two videos do play a big part in that, I guess.
