The Cher Thread

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone here cares but "Woman's World," the first single off of Cher's upcoming 26th album, has been out for over a month now (and I had no idea). Not officially released yet. Doesn't really compare to her classic stuff but I love it and I'm glad she's coming back after 11-12 years!

I love all things Cher!! I really don't get the deal with her new music, though. I love "Woman's World", but this "new album" has been pushed back and pushed back for over a year and even this single has been drifting in cyber space for what seems like forever. I'm really gonna need her record label to step up! My favorite work from Cher was actually on her most recent album, 2001's "Living Proof"...flawless dance pop!

Believe was her best song IMO. Of course it was her biggest hit.

It's flawless pop!

while I believe in life after love, I am partial to some of her oldies

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I think she's really taking her time recording it... the only reason Woman's World is out is because it was leaked and it forced Warner to put it on YouTube. But, yes, I would love for it to come out already.

I'm really surprised that your favorite album is Living Proof! I loved it but I suspect it's not a very popular opinion... and they took the over the top autotuning way waaaay too far! I'm glad to see this album is looking different.

Oddly, I think Cher's one of those few singers who transitioned to acting, and was better [for me] as an actress than singer.

I loved her "movie star era" in the 80s/very early 90s. I can still watch Mask, Moonstruck, Silkwood, and Mermaids a million times over.

Her version of The Shoop Shoop Song went to #1 in the UK, but only reached #33 in the US. I love her version too.

Cher herself has said that she always wanted to be an actress, not a singer, and that she's technically better at acting than singing.

Years ago, I was visitng my late ex-girlfriend in L.A., and she was on a serious Cher jag. She would play her "best of" album in the car and as a biracial person, I remember cutting up when she played the song "Half-breed". Later that week, we were driving to a restaurant and who should I see driving a vintage pickup truck??
