But Tina's version of the song in 1989 was a cover !

Who had the original single release in 1988 ?

The Bonnie Tyler single didn't chart.

The CD version of the single had 3 songs:

The Best
The Fire Below
Under Suspicion


Well done, JimT !

That's something I didn't know. Tina also successfully covered Tony Joe White's Steamy Windows, which helped to revive his career.

Bonnie did a pretty good job on that.
Should have been a hit for her.
I Prefer Tina's version though.

Tony Joe White also wrote (and played lead and rhythm guitar for the studio version of) "Undercover Agent for the Blues" for Tina, the b-side of the single "The Best":
