Favorite "Queen" Songs #8 - "I Might Have Been Queen"
February 5, 2018 9:58pm CST
Having done "king" earlier, it's time for equal opportunity with my countdown of my favorite songs with "queen" in the title. We are at #8: "I Might Have Been Queen": by Tina Turner. "I Might Have Been Queen" is the leadoff track on Tina Turner's wildly successful 1984 album, Private Dancer. If you detect a Fixx sound when listening, you aren't wrong. There is a very strong bond with that band on the song. Fixx vocalist Cy Curnin performed backing vocals, and Fixx producer Rupert Hine not only produced the tune, but also played multiple instruments on the track. "I Might Have Been Queen" was one of the few songs from the record that was not released as a single. A pity, as as far as I'm concerned, it's the best song on the album. Oh well. I've linked to a live version. Enjoy! (Soul surviver info verified by Wikipedia)
