TINA ARENA : Chains
Tina Arena first hit the top ten in 1989 with her smash single ‘I Need Your Body’, but it was her 1993 hit ‘Chains’ that catapulted her to global stardom. The clip encapsulated the song perfectly, Tina locked away from the light of the world, imprisoned in squalor within darkened walls with occasional shards of daylight piercing the darkness. That is, of course, until just after two minutes into the song when she begins to go a bit nutso, ready to face the world outside. She rips down the black plastic that’s kept the sunlight at bay and dances in it’s warmth. A classic Australian song from a classic Australian voice and a deserved hit in Australia, the UK and the US.
