This amazing tee is all love for the talented Tina Turner. It commemorates her 1984 single "Better Be Good to Me" from her fifth studio album "Private Dancer." The graphic showcases Turner in a flattering red one-piece and fishnet stockings, rocking her signature wild do.
The story behind this track is certainly interesting. It was originally written by Mark Knopfler for his British rock band, Dire Straits. But after deciding it wasn't fit for a man to sing, Knopfler never released it. A couple years later his manager Ed Bicknell offered the song over to Turner's manager Roger Scott.
"Better be Good to Me" was relatively well received, peaking at No. 7 on the US Billboard HOt 100 and No. 3 on the R&B Chart. It even got some international attention, landing at No. 26 on the UK Singles Chart. The lyrics are fun to interpret, as people have teeter tottered between the idea that it's sung from a prostitute's perspective or a disillusioned dancer.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large.
