Cover Fridays: Tina Turner covers Unfinished Sympathy

Toronto – Never heard of this cover before, but who woulda thought that Tina Turner would cover this Massive Attack song..and put it on an album (1996’s Wildest Dreams)? Lets dish out some information on this classic song. Released as a single off Blue Lines in 1991, Unfinished Sympathy featured Shara Nelson on the vocals and was a massive hit. The video of the song was one of the most iconic videos, as it featured a continuous shot of Shara Nelson walking down the streets of LA. You might remember this type of video from The Verve’s Bitter Sweet Symphony, easily a homage to this video.
