Tina Turner Turns the Country On in “Help Me Make It Through The Night”


Tina Turner is one of the most timeless icons in the whole industry. The queen knows no bounds, as she dabbles with country flavor in the hit song “Help Me Make It Through the Night.”

“Help Me Make It Through The Night”

The song is an original ballad written and composed by Kris Kristofferson. He alludes his inspiration for writing the song from a Frank Sinatra interview, where Frank said that he believed in:

“Booze, broads, or a bible…whatever helps me make it through the night.”

The song’s suggestive manner would be the center of controversy in the conservative era of the 1970s. However, that didn’t stop the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, as she put her own spin into the song, making it seem like a desperate plea to have anything just for her to get through the night fine.

This song has been covered by many other prominent country artists, including Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Glen Campbell, Joan Baez, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, and Willie Nelson.

Tuner’s debut studio album is actually rooted in country flavors dipped in R&B. In Tina Turns The Country On!, she dabbles on the bayou southern feels in her songs.
