1. If I could turn back time
Written by mega hit songwriter Diane Warren, this timeless pop rock song was released as the second single from Cher’s 1989 album “Heart of stone”.
It has an iconic music video directed by Marty Callner where Cher perform for the crew of the battleship USS Missouri. Her son, twelve-year-old Elijah Blue Allman, appears in the music video as a band member playing guitar.
In 1998, Cher teamed up with British producer Mark Taylor for the worldwide hit “Believe”.
At the time, she was 52 making her the oldest female artist to have a #1 hit in the UK.
The Grammy-winning song also reached number one in almost every country it charted, including United States, Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Spain, France, Germany and Italy.
It was the first commercial recording to use Auto-Tune as a vocal effect.
3. I got you babe (with Sonny Bono)
Before established herself as a solo artist, Cher worked with Sonny Bono for one of the better rock-influenced acts of 60s-70s.
First single was the sweet and simple love duet “I got you babe”.
Taken from the couple’s debut studio album “Look at us”, the track has been frequently featured in film and television, including 1993 movie “Groundhog day”.
4. The shoop shoop song (it’s in his kiss)
Known for being a successful singer-songwriter, Cher is also an Oscar-winning actress.
Following “Moonstruck”‘s critical and commercial success, she played Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci’s mom in American comedy-drama movie “Mermaids” (1990).
The soundtrack album contains the worldwide hit “The shoop shoop song (it’s in hiss kiss)” originally recorded by Merry Clayton and then Betty Everett.
5. You haven’t seen the last of me
Over the course of her six-decade long career, Cher delivered legendary and awesome songs.
Another example is “You haven’t seen the last of me”.
Released in 2010, this powerful Diane Warren penned ballad is taken from the soundtrack to the musical film “Burlesque”, which co-stars Christina Aguilera.
The song won a Golden Globe Award for best original song at the ceremony held on January 16, 2011.
