    Cher/Sonny & Cher

    [​IMG]

    Cher is an American singer and actress. Called the Goddess of Pop, she is described as embodying female autonomy in a male-dominated industry. She is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in numerous areas of entertainment, as well as adopting a variety of styles and appearances during her five-decade-long career.


    [​IMG]

    Cher's first studio album in 12 years, Closer to the Truth (2013), became her highest-charting solo album in the U.S. to date at number three.

    Cher has sold more than 100 million records worldwide and is recognized as one of the world's top-selling female recording artists of all time

    Yes, it's a vast back catalogue, especially combined with the Sonny & Cher songs, but that's more reason to choose your favourites wisely:D

    1. Little Man (Sonny & Cher)

    At #1, since I only picked one S&C song. And I think it's their best song anyway.

    2. Send The Man Over

    A Jackie Collins novel as a song.

    3. War Paint And Soft Feathers

    "They were of two different tongues, but their lips met anyhow"

    4. Dark Lady

    5. Train Of Thought
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQQFGG2Gff8
    Because it sounds so raw and powerful, and I like train & plane songs.

    6. Taxi Taxi (because I bought the "Believe" album just for this one song)

    7. With Or Without You
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ipgEyPh2lE
    Nice sampling of "Whiter Shade Of Pale", good vocals too - perhaps a bit too much at the end of the song.
    I think it has (had) hit-potential but there were no singles releases from this album, as far as I know.

    8. Welcome To Burlesque
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Um3C9Gmpm4Y
    Her voice is so perfect for this song.

    9. Dov'è L'Amore
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVeA4QahKT4
    Great euro-latin pop, from a carefree, pre-terrorist era (sigh!)

    10. Bad Love
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLQJK60K7P4
    From the Giorgio Moroder album "Foxes".

    I'm saving Bang Bang for the NANCY SINATRA Top Ten.
    (!)

    1. Heart of Stone
    2. Love and Understanding
    3. Just Like Jesse James
    4. Walking in Memphis
    5. Dead Ringer for Love
    6. If I Could Turn Back Time
    7. Believe
    8. Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)
    9. The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)
    10. I Got You Babe

    I could keep going but i'd be here till morning. So many other great singles and album tracks I could have put in. In fact i'd put in the whole Heart of Stone album if I could.

    Yes...I was surprised- no, shocked! - to see that you had omitted Dark Lady from your list!

    Divorce (or a marriage about to fall apart) is a bitch, but it makes for great songs, great soap and great tabloid fodder.

    I really wanted to include this one, but like you, I didn't want to sacrifice any songs from my top ten.
    In hindsight, perhaps we should have done the Cher Top Ten in 3 parts, like we did with Madonna.
