Tina Turner - We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)

[Verse 1]
Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can't make the same mistake this time
We are the children, the last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And, I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear, until nothing else remains

[Chorus]
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

[Verse 2]
Looking for something we can rely on
There's gotta be something better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change
Living under the fear until nothing else remains

[Chorus]
All the children say
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond
Thunderdome

We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome) was the hit theme song to the 1985 film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Written by Terry Britten and Graham Lyle, the song was performed by Tina Turner, who also played the role of Aunty Entity in the movie, and produced by Terry Britten. "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)" was released at the peak of Tina Turner's musical career, on the heels of her multiplatinum Private Dancer album and its many hit singles. The song's lyrical content and theme is mostly a statement of anti-war and anti-violence. The version played during the film differs from the version on the album and single. The song was also released in an extended, six-minute-plus 12" version, included on the soundtrack album. The song received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song in 1986 and a 1986 Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The music video for the song is generally considered to be one of Tina Turner's best, and remains one of her most well-known and recognizable music videos. The video features an iconic Tina Turner dressed in a heavy chain mail gown, more or less in character as Aunt Entity. Striking a bold pose atop an illuminated circular pedestal, as several spotlights train themselves on her and the camera swoops beneath her, she proceeds to sing atop the platform while various scenes from the movie are shown. In the last part of the song, Turner's tour saxophonist Tim Capello and a children's choir accompany Tina. The music video received an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Female Video.
