We were talking about her after the report of her death was heard on the radio. I knew of her of course and would potentially recognise probably a dozen or more of her songs. Not a fan at all but she was part of the soundtrack of my life. Went through a lot I guess and a role model to victims of domestic violence. I often had dealings with a lady (drug dealer) who was referred to as "Tina Turner" as she looked like her in a certain light (maybe an expired candle)
I understand that she was more famous / popular abroad then at home.
Her song in the 2nd (I think) Mad Max film probably helped her career and of course the 1984 album "Private Dancer" was a change in her musical style to more rock / pop with the eponymous song written my Mark Knopfler and the album being recorded in the UK with British production teams.
