Strange cover: Ike & Tina Turner doing Alice Cooper’s “Only Women Bleed” (!)

(go to 6:25 in the video)

Strange song selection for Tina considering the song is about spousal abuse, and Ike used to beat her up. Or maybe it was a cry out for help?

On a different level, it goes to show that Alice Cooper is criminally underrated as a songwriter. Very cool and unusual cover.

    Thanks Matt! I had made the link so it would start at that time but WordPress stripped the extra data 🙁

    Cool cover indeed!
