“Afterglow” is the name of a song recorded by Tina Turner, written and produced by Terry Britten and Graham Lyle. It appeared on her 1986 album Break Every Rule, and featured Steve Winwood on keyboards. The song was the eighth and final song from the album to be released as a single, if only in the United States. It failed to crack the US Hot 100, but it reached #2 on the US dance charts and #20 on the Adult Contemporary chart. A promo video for the track was filmed as part of the Break Every Rule TV special in 1986, in which it was the opening number. It shows Turner performing the song in her dressing room at the club Le Zero in Paris as she is preparing to go on stage.

    Paul, I didn’t even know there was a 12″ of Afterglow!!
    Thanks for all of the Tina!
    It’s nice that you’ve focused on her kind of forgotton album.
    It seems that none of these singles get any airply anymore.

    No club in Paris is called “Le Zéro”. It was invented for the clip. And the Paris of the clip is more ’50s than ’80′s, more “how people from the US see Paris” than really Paris 😉

    (Excellent posts anyway.)

    I’ve been remiss in thanking you for all the Break Every Rule rarities and 12″s. Thank you so very VERY much. Timely, too, as I make a birthday CD for myself every year, and my only MP3 of the 7″ remix edit was filled with pops of old vinyl. Cheers! – Silver Blue

    Thank you for the series… more than 2 hours of extra-material from the “Break every rule” album, wow.
    We can do the “deluxe edition” of that album.
    It would be great to do the same with the others TT albums.

    Hi DJ Paul! What a wonderful week of Tina Turner 12″s. If it’s not too much to ask, may I request for the remixes of her Steamy Windows. Thanks so much and more power to your blog!
