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. Several TV performances were made by Bassey to promote this album and British television broadcast a successful commercial campaign. The album sold well across Europe and entered the UK Albums Chart, for a run of nine weeks, on November 11th 1995 and peaked at number 24.

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
