"Turbo Lover" is a single by heavy metal band Judas Priest, from the album Turbo.

Background[edit]

Released in 1986, the song was one of the first tracks recorded for the album with the use of guitar synthesizers. There are, however, two guitar solos in the bridge: the first is played by K. K. Downing, and Glenn Tipton plays the main solo that follows.

A music video directed by Wayne Isham was also filmed for the song. A 7.23 long, extended and disco-oriented remix of the song, the "Hi-Octane Mix" by DJ Freddy Bastone was released on the "Parental Guidance" vinyl single and later on the Priest, Live and Rare CD.[1]

"Turbo Lover" is featured in the video games Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec (2001) and Watch Dogs 2 (2016).
