“It’s Only Love” is a song by Canadian singer and songwriter Bryan Adams, featuring American singer Tina Turner. It was the sixth and final single from Adams’ album Reckless (1984) and was included on Tina Turner’s live album Tina Live in Europe (1988), as well as being added to both artists’ greatest hits compilations: Adams’ Anthology (2005) and Turner’s All the Best (2004). It reached number 15 in January 1986 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. and number 29 in the UK. The 12″ single included the 1985 live version that would later appear on the 1988 album Tina Live in Europe.
Adams told Songfacts that this was his most memorable collaboration of all the ones he has done. He explained: “Working with Tina Turner was amazing. I used to go to see her in the clubs when I was in my late teens/ the early 20s before she hit the big time. It was incredible to watch her.” He added: “It was such a privilege to have sung with her, especially since I was only 24 at the time.”
The video is a live clip from Tina Turner’s 1985 Private Dancer Tour. It begins with Turner in her trademark black leather mini dress and jean jacket, introducing the young Canadian Bryan Adams. He then joins her on stage for a live performance of the song. The popular video won Best Stage Performance in a Video at the 1986 MTV Awards.
It was the first music video that ever used Skycam. (https://www.tina-turner.nl/blog/documentary-video-killed-radio-star-tina-turner/)
