Music Video of the Day: We Don’t Need Another Hero by Tina Turner (1985, dir by ????)


Last week, I watched Mad Max.  On Tuesday, I watched The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.  As such, it only seems appropriate that today’s music video of the day should be the theme song from Beyond Thunderdome, We Don’t Need Another Hero.

Performed by Tina Turner (who, of course, also co-starred in Beyond Thunderdome), We Don’t Need Another Hero seems like it was pretty obviously written in an attempt to land, at the very least, an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.  Well, the Academy didn’t nominate the song but it did win a Golden Globe and it went on to become one of Turner’s biggest hits.

The video is a mix of Turner singing and scenes from Beyond Thunderdome.  It’s not a bad song, even if it is hard to imagine any of the other Mad Max films featuring a power ballad.  Then again, each Mad Max film is it’s own unique work of art.  That’s one thing that makes the entire series so effective.

Enjoy!
