Tina Turner clocks up her 3/4 Century today.
I was once professionally employed to write entries for a rock reference book and her birthdate - as in the year of her birth - proved somewhat elusive. One school of thought suggests she's two years older than she says.

Last time I heard that Jimmy Ruffin track was in a mash-up made by a mixer who calls himself Phil Retrospector. He mixed that track with Snow Patrol's "Chasing cars". The video that was made was a tear jerker with footage of the Charly Brown cartoons, that was since pulled from Youtube.

Here's that track.

Edit:
The video is still up at Vimeo!

Was surprised that more didn't go for him in the end tbh: I'd have thought between him playing on "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday" and the propensity for the BBC local sections to mention anyone who died within their confines that had a moments' international fame he'd have been a straight-forward obit.

Yeah, I'm a bit surprised that the BBC didn't follow up too. Still, who cares how the ball went in the net, it's in!

I had him as a marginal pick but wasn't sure he was obitworthy, so that reality check from ITV is welcome. Quite a few of those seventies Top of the Poppers were partial to a drink and a cig, right, all - just about - pensionable now.
