1995 (Veteran vocalist/entertainer Shirley Bassey recorded a nice cover of her good friend, Tina Turner's hit song, from her 1985 movie, 'Mad Max - Beyond The Thunderdome.' Shirley and Tina have been friends for decades, and given the opportunity each has complimented the other's work over the years. This clip is thus a tribute to Tina's hit song, and the great work she did in this movie with Mel Gibson.
ABOUT the CD, 'Shirley Bassey - Sings The Movies' Sings the Movies is a studio album from Shirley Bassey released in 1995.
In 1995 Shirley Bassey signed a deal with the PolyGram TV label, she recorded and released two albums with the label. The first was a themed album of movie songs. The songs were personally selected by Bassey for the album, and are a diverse range of ballads and pop classics, some were originally composed for original soundtracks, but several were classic songs that appeared in successful movies. One re-recording was made of the classic James Bond theme "Goldfinger", this is the fourth studio recording of the song by Shirley Bassey. No singles were issued form this album.

LYRICS: Out of the ruins Out from the wreckage Can't make the same mistake this time We are the children The last generation We are the ones they left behind And I've wondered when, we're ever gonna change Living under the fear, till nothing else remains We don't need another hero We don't need to know the way home All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
Looking for something We can rely on There's gotta be something better out there Love and compassion That day is coming All else are castles built in the air And I wonder when, we're ever gonna change Living under the fear, till nothing else remains
All the children say We don't need another hero We don't need to know the way home All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
So what do we do with our lives We leave only a mark Will our story shine like a light Or end in the dark Is it all or nothing
We don't need another hero We don't need to know the way home All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
