C is for Cher

Where would music be without the influence of the notorious, fabulous and one of kind marvel that is Cher.   With her long dark hair waving as she sings I got you babe with Sonny, to wearing what is the equivalent of nothing in front of thousands of soldiers as she Turns Back Time, Cher has touched the hearts of millions creating a cult following, and creative ensemble of fans who worship her music.

I can't think of a better person to rule the letter C than Cher. 

My favorite song by her is . . . If I could turn back time.  And yes she is barely wearing anything!  What a shock to 80's music videos back in the day.  This video was one very hot topic back in the day!


My least favorite Cher song is . . .  Only because of Sonny

I got you babe . . .by Sonny and Cher


And the song of Cher's that inspires me creatively, and is also one of my all time favorite songs, is You Haven't Seen the Last of Me from the Burlesque Soundtrack.

The reason this song speaks to me so much is because there are days that I feel like my life is at it's end.  The song raises your hope and pretty much tells everyone who doubts you that despite their negative outlook on you, or the choices in your life they will not break you.

Feeling broken Barely holding on But just there's something so strong Somewhere inside me. And I am down, but I'll get up again. Don't count me out just yet
I've been brought down to my knees And I've been pushed way past the point of breaking, But I can take it. I'll be back - Back on my feet This is far from over You haven't seen the last of me. You haven't seen the last of me.

The lyrics to this song, give me chills, and Cher's voice is the perfect match to such a heart felt song. 


  1. A lot of Cher's 80's output was a guilty pleasure for me...and that video was on the steamy side!

  2. Very very Steamy! But you have to love her determination to stay unique not many people would have gone out on a limb like she did back then!
