Number 889 - Cher



Number 889

Cher

"Turn Back Time"

(1989)
.
Genre:Pop
Cher... what can one say about Cher? She has done it all, Pop career over 4 decades, TV career, Movie Oscar winner, Grammy winner, Emmy winner, Golden Globe awards winner. So what does Crowbarred say about the Queen Of Dream? "She looks bloody great in fish netting!" Hey, its not if i write for Rolling Stone yanno (gee i wonder why?)

Cher has had three careers that place her indelibly in the public consciousness, and two have been in association with her then-husband, composer/producer/singer Salvatore "Sonny" Bono (February 16, 1935-January 8, 1998). She charted major hit records in the 1960s and 1970s, working in idioms ranging from early- '60s girl group-style ballads to Jackie Deshannon folk-influenced pop, to adult contemporary pop in the manner of later Dusty Springfield. She also embarked on an acting career, initially in the late 1960s in association with her work as part of Sonny & Cher but later on her own, which led to a series of increasingly polished and compelling performances in Silkwood, Mask and Moonstruck, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress
Now believe it or not, Cher was born wayyyyyyyyyy back in 1946, (yes thats before tv was in new zealand) obviously her parents celebrated the day the war ended (wink). Hard to imagine her being 60 really, but at least we won't find her kissing Brittney. (Will we?)
Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs ranked this song at Number (Nope, Probably the only award she hasn't won!) and the Album ranked at Number (Oh well)
This song has a crowbarred rating of 58.4 out of 108
