PostSubject: Who wrote down Don't Turn Around????   Tue Jan 30, 2007 5:12 pm

Maybe this is a question that nobody know but here it:
Who wrote down Don't Turn Around?
It was JSS, Tone Norum or some1else?
I gonna start to explain my point

Here is a Tone Norum's video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDAnLOEetIQ

If you search on Wikimedia you can find the following sentence:
Tone Norum's 1992 hit, "Don't Turn Around" had been covered by another Swedish act, Ace of Base, with their dance version released in 1994.
BTW: Tone Norum is John Norum's sister (yes the same Europe's axeman)
You can find Tone Norum's version on this release:


I also know that EYES on their debut album (1990) also recorded the same song here is the lyrics

DON'T TURN AROUND

IF U WANNA LEAVE I DON'T WANNA BEG U 2 STAY
& IF U GOTTA GO, DARLIN',MAYBE IT'S BETTER THAT WAY

I'M GONNA BE STRONG, I'M GONNA DO FINE,
DON'T WORRY ABOUT THIS HEART OF MINE
JUST WALK OUT THAT DOOR, & SEE IF I CARE
GO ON & GO NOW

DON'T TURN AROUND, I DON'T WANT U SEEIN' MY HEART BREAKIN'
I DON'T WANT U SEEIN' ME CRY
IT'S TEARING ME APART THAT YOU'RE LEAVING
I'M LETTING IT GO, BUT I WON'T LET U KNOW

I WON'T MISS YOUR ARMS AROUND ME
WHEN THEY'RE HOLDIN' ME TIGHT
NOW IF U EVER THINK ABOUT ME
JUST KNOW THAT I'LL BE ALL RIGHT

I'M GONNA BE STRONG, I'M GONNA DO FINE,
DON'T WORRY ABOUT THIS HEART OF MINE
I KNOW I'LL SURVIVE, SURE I'LL MAKE IT THRU
& I'LL EVEN RUN GOOD WITHOUT U

CHORUS:
DON'T TURN AROUND, I DON'T WANT U SEEIN' MY HEART BREAKIN'
DON'T TURN AROUND, I DON'T WANT U SEEIN' ME CRY
DON'T WALK AWAY, IT'S TEARING ME APART THAT YOU'RE LEAVING
I'M LETTING IT GO

I WISH I COULD SCREAM OUT LOUD THAT I LOVE U
I WISH I COULD SAY 2 U, DON'T, DON'T....
DON'T TURN AROUND

I DON'T WANT U SEEIN' MY HEART BREAKIN'
DON'T TURN AROUND, I DON'T WANT U SEEIN' ME CRY
DON'T WALK AWAY, IT'S TEARING ME APART THAT YOU'RE LEAVING
I'M LETTING IT GO........

Do you want to know the answer???

Don't Turn Around is a popular song written by Diane Warren and Albert Hammond. It was originally recorded by Tina Turner as a B-side to the single Typical Male in 1986. Warren is said to have been disappointed that Turner's record company treated the song as a B-side and never included it on one of her albums.

It has been covered by a number of artists. Bonnie Tyler released a version in 1988 on her album Notes from America. Soul singer Luther Ingram had a US #55 R&B hit with "Don't Turn Around." Aswad heard Ingram's version and covered it, taking the song to #1 on the UK singles chart in March 1988; their version also reached #45 on the Billboard R&B singles chart that same year. Neil Diamond's 1992 version made the top 20 on the US Adult Contemporary chart. In 1994 Ace of Base took the song to #4 on the Billboard hot 100 singles chart and to #5 in the UK. The song was also covered by Jeff Scott Soto, lead vocalist from the band 'Eyes' in 1990.
