It's gotta go to Mr. Green. I love Tina, but I don't care for her version of it. It's a bit too overproduced for my tastes.

Al easily. Tina's is all right but like was said already, it's overproduced.

Definily Tina Turner, she really changed how I hear this song after I heard her version.

Al Green of course


this song (and album) was the exact turning point, when Tina became a soul-less fucking uninspired sellout

TINA TURNER 100%!!!!! music I never even recall hearing Al's version until I heard Tina's. I probably did as I was growing up but never paid much attention to it.

Although I wouldn't use that exact wording lol , I do agree after "Private Dancer", Tina moved further and further away from R&B with each album. However, I really don't blame her. Tina wanted to go where the money was. Let face it, R&B artists do not sell out stadiums world-wide. Rock audiences are far more loyal than R&B audiences. Prince and Micheal knew they had to build their Pop/Rock fanbase in order to maintain a certain level of ticket sales. If Tina, Micheal and Prince would have stayed 100% R&B, all would have eventually been reduced to playing much smaller venues later in their careers or even worse, becoming a part of those ghastly group tours that so many veteran R&B acts have been forced into.

Sadly, this is the case.

Perhaps one day R&B as a genre will be viewed on the same level as pop and rock, especially the latter. However, present day R&B is in a sunken place, it has to get out of the great rut that it's in first.

I like both versions, but not equally. Gotta go with the Rev.

I think they are both good, but I love the groove of Al Green's recording
