Music Monday is a weekly post series started by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek.

When I was a kid, myself and all of my friends were obsessed with this song. We all learned the words and we all sang it constantly. Our parents may have been slightly concerned since the song was on the adult pop stations1At the time my friends and I were 8/9/10 years old, but we didn’t care. We loved it. Here’s Tina Turner’s What’s Love Got to Do With It.

Lyrics

You must understand, though the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it’s only the thrill of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract

It’s physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore that it means more than that

Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
What’s love but a second-hand emotion?
What’s love got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?

Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
What’s love but a second-hand emo-
Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?

Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
What’s love but a second-hand emo-
Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?

It may seem to you that I’m acting confused
When you’re close to me
If I tend to look dazed, I’ve read it someplace
I’ve got cause to be

There’s a name for it
There’s a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason, you do it for me

Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
What’s love but a second-hand emotion?
What’s love got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs a heart, when a heart can be broken?

Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
What’s love but a second-hand emotion?
What’s love got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs a heart (when a heart can be broken?)

What’s love got to do, got to do with it?
What’s love but a second-hand emotion?
Oh-oh, what’s love got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?
Oh-oh

Oh-oh, what’s love?
What’s love?
Oh-oh
