That means that in Private Dancer, both Tina and Jeff are gone. Time flies, spend it wisely!

Yes

MK always says that Private Dancer being a hit by Tina was unexpected to him as he didn't write it for her in the first place, so he wrote "Overnight sensation" on purpose for her, talking about how big she got after that, but MK always says that writing it on purpose didn't worked as he would had liken, as it wasn't successful.

Just listened to an interview with legendary music presenter Paul Gambacini and he said he once heard the Dire Straits version of Private Dancer.

Hal and Alan always said the band played the song with MK and as far as I understood they recorded it with him, at least in a demo version. And they said the version was fantastic and very similar to Tina's, specially the bass and piano sections.

Rest In Peace.

Yes

'The world is saddened to hear of the passing of our beloved Tina Turner.  She was a live force, a human dynamo.
Tina showed no sign of bitterness about a tough childhood, then a violent marriage and hard times following her divorce from Ike Turner.  Instead she put her superhuman energy into her unique interpretations of songs, and eventually her records sold by the million. Meanwhile, a musical about her life plays in theatres everywhere.
She was an inspiration for women of all ages and social classes and was worshipped by major entertainers such as Beyonce and Rihanna.
Tina said she wanted to be remembered as the Queen of Rock ’n' Roll, and that is precisely what she became.'

Tina has said, she loved Mark's vocal/version of Private Dancer, so, it must be in a vault somewhere, another one for the rarities box set?

Tina had this to say about Private Dancer:

"I never had to stoop to that in my life," she wrote in her autobiography. "But I think most of us have been in situations where we had to sell ourselves, one way or another.

"When I gave into Ike, when I kept quiet to avoid an argument, when I stayed with him despite longing to leave, that's what I was thinking about when I sang the song, the sadness of doing something that you don't want to do, day in, day out. It's very emotional."
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

According to the Official Charts people, Private Dancer is looking like charting at 31, which is amazing, It's rare for Mark to have a single charting that high, even though he isn't performing on it.
