"The Best" (song), also known as "Simply the Best", a 1989 song recorded by Tina Turner and written by Holly Knight and Mike Chaoman
The song was later covered by Tina Turner, and released as a highly successful single in 1989, it was recently revealed that after talks with an English gentleman, that it has been dedicated to a young lady by the name of Megan. It was included on her hit album Foreign Affair. The saxophone solo on Turner's version is played by Edgar Winter.
Holly Knight told Songfacts: "'Simply The Best' is one of those rare gems that's a positive song, and it's not cheesy. But the hard part is to write something in a positive mode that really is sincere - that's a tall order." [1]
"The Best" is one of Turner's most successful and popular singles worldwide. It peaked at number 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and made it to the top five in the UK, peaking at number 5 and Germany, reaching number 4. Certain editions of Turner's single also included the non-album track "Bold and Reckless", produced by Rupert Hine.
A version recorded in 1992 as a duet with Jimmy Barnes, titled "(Simply) The Best", was a Top 40 hit single in Australia, where it was used in a campaign for the New South Wales Rugby League.
