Some months before Tina Turner recorded the song, British pop group Bucks Fizz were offered it. Member Jay Aston requested to sing lead on the track after hearing the demo, but was told by the producer that it was unsuitable for a female lead vocal. The group went on to record it in February 1984, but sung by male member Bobby G. Aston recalls that the demo was very similar to the eventual Tina Turner version, but their finished version was in a very different style. It was intended for possible inclusion on their next album, I Hear Talk, but was shelved when Turner released it first. The Bucks Fizz version went unreleased until it was included on a re-issue of their Are You Ready album in 2000.
