Dreams of Long Ago

I'm a huge Tina Turner fan, have been my whole life. The first song I remember loving and singing was "What's love got to do with it" and I think I was about 2 or 3. Anyways, when I heard that she had performed "Proud Mary" with Beyonce at the Grammy's I immediately looked up the performance on youtube and was reminded of my biggest childhood dream......to be a dancer for Tina Turner, especially during "Proud Mary". No ballerina or teacher for this girl, I wanted to shake my ass with Tina!!! For those of you who are not familiar with the choreography here is a clip of her performing the song. She has been performing this song since she was with Ike and very little has changed. This is a slightly toned down version but it was the shortest clip and you could see the dancers the best.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I think they could definitely use a sexy redhead in their line. You are just the woman for the job! I can totally see it. The first thing I can remember wanting to be is a firefighter. Ha ha!

I always wanted to be the Little Mermaid. Yep, flowing red hair, shimmering tail, beautiful voice. I still know all the words to "Part of your world." And as Snow White says, I use to dream that "someday my prince would come..." So cheesy but so true!
