EDITORS’ NOTES

Tina Turner’s 1984 comeback updates the Southern funk ‘n’ soul she pioneered in the ‘60s with synthesizer tones and hard rock bravado. On “I Can’t Stand the Rain,” she injects Ann Peebles’ torch song with overwhelming emotion, and the husky-voiced title track is simultaneously downcast and defiant. She’s the consummate survivor, lending raw, almost feral intensity to “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and demanding that the world “Show Some Respect.” Members of synth-pop group Heaven 17 handle much of the production, crafting Turner’s manifesto of personal independence into an album for the ages.
