Saturday video break: Proud Mary

Song #13 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Proud Mary”, originally by Creedence Clearwater Revival and covered by Ike & Tina Turner. Here’s CCR:

Man, if you weren’t dancing, or at least grooving, to that, you really ought to verify that you have a pulse. You’ve got to be playing at a very high level to take CCR’s “Proud Mary” to such a different place musically and improve it in the process. All hail Tina Turner.
