Originally written by rocker Mark Knopfler for his band Dire Straits, "Private Dander" (a sultry tune about a stripper who prefers to consider herself a 'private dancer'), was pitched to Tina Turner, in part, because it was thought that the song should be sung by a woman instead of a man. Turner, who was just making a comeback to music, quickly fell in love with the song and added it to her fifth solo album Private Dancer (1984). Produced by John Carter, "Private Dancer" was released as the album's fifth single. The track reached number seven on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the US R&B chart.

For those of you who read this blog, what would normally be a "Friday Night Throwback" in this space, will now be "Show-n-Prove Friday". This weekly slot will serve as an opportunity to showcase new and talented unsigned artists covering some of our favorite R&B jams. Selections will be based on the quality of the cover and presentation of the clip (it would also help if you wrote a couple of sentences about yourself, along with contact info, so we can let our readers know who you are).
For anyone interested in a chance to have their cover seen on this blog, please feel free to email your video to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting next week "Friday Night Throwback" will be converted to the more appropriate "Thursday Throwback".
This week's Show-n-Prove sees a group by the name of Harmonious Monks covering The Internet's "Special Affair" inside USC music studios.
