"I Don't Wanna Fight" is a song performed by recording artist Tina Turner. It was written by the British singer Lulu, her brother Billy Lawrie and Steve DuBerry and first offered to singer Sade, who sent it on to Turner. Turner recorded it in 1993 as part of the soundtrack for her autobiographical film, What's Love Got to Do with It. Featuring a wistful but resolute vocal set against a synthesizer line, the track was a substantial hit on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as number seven on the UK Singles Chart. The song was nominated at the 36th Grammy Awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

Lulu's version appears as the b-side to her 1993 single "How 'Bout Us" as well as on the 2003 album The Greatest Hits.
