If I Could be Anyone, I'd be...

Wednesday, September 14, 2011


Congrats to Talli on the launch of Watching Willow Watts. To help Talli celebrate, I’m taking part in her 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...' party! Her MC, Willow, takes on Marilyn Munroe’s identity in a video and comes close to losing her own. So now it’s my turn.

Who would I be, if I could be anyone?



I’d be the woman who has been dubbed the Queen of Rock and Roll. A woman who was part of a dynamic musical duo and emerged from spousal abuse to launch her own successful career.   Anybody remember Let’s Stay Together and Private Dancer and the super cool post-apocalyptic movie Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dome?


Apart from being one strong and determined female, my shero is also super hot for a mature woman. When I grow up, I wanna be just like Tina Turner!

Tina Turner - Over 71 and still looking fab!
Super Hot Tina Turner








Can you blame me for wanting to be the one cozying up to David Bowie in this video? Voice, style attitude...but I'm getting carried away. Love, love, love me some David Bowie. Can you tell? I'd loan him to Willow, but the father/daughter age difference would be kind of yucky. 



To get back on point...congrats again, Talli! Here's wishing you out-of-this-world success with Watching Willow Watts.

  3. I can't believe you picked my favourite Tina Turner track, especially as it's not one of her better known ones.

    Thank you for the treat :-)

  8. Cherie, yes , this blogfest is pretty cool. Talli never ceases to impress me with the stuff she comes up with. Wish I were half as creative. Cathy Reichs is a wonderful choice. Read her and watch Bones too.
    Janice, thanks! Tina is one fabulous woman.
    Sarah, I’m grinning from ear to ear. Love Tina/David together. They sizzle!
    Tina would run rings around many of us, Rachel. She’s that fab!  Thanks for visiting.

    Yes, Clarissa, absolutely wonderful voice and lots of presence.

    Hilary, no problem. Oh yes, Tina is as raunchy as they come.

    Jess, cool! You’re so young and yet you know Tina. It says she’s still out there and somewhat known. My son would make remarks about fossil days if I mentioned her music.

    Morgan, that she is.

    Carol, oh yeah. Tina stands tall among artistes.

  21. JL, what an amazing singer she was. Incidentally, I saw her film on TV last week, What's Love Got To Do with It...I was so shocked to know she's gone through A LOT. But through it all, she became a success. A great singer!

    Isis, I agree totally!

  24. I was a big Tina fan back in the eighties, as well as a fan of David Bowie. Haven't kept up with either of them that much in the last several years, but I haven't kept up with too many things. Great music memories with both of them.

    I'll keep thinking.

  26. I doubt either of them have been doing much. I think Tina did a huge tour some years ago.

    Tirz, the trouble is, there's a whole world out there to choose from.

    She's such an inspiration in so many ways.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Julie, Tina seems to be a hit with many.

    You can say that again< Marlena. She's full of attitude and yet warm at the same time.

    Can't imagine being through so much bad stuff and not feel beaten down.

  36. Somehow, the moment I read Talli's post about the blogfest, I thought about Tina Turner. Nobody else crossed my mind. Dunno why.

    Scratch that. I probably do know why. Plain and simple, she's an inspiration.
