Boy do I love me some Cher. I think I get it from my mother, who loves her as well and played her music while I was growing up all of the time. (My mom was mad when she got her “trademark teeth” fixed, as they were part of her identity; I thought this said a lot about how much she really likes the singer/actress.)
I could play Cher’s music all day, unlike many of my friends—and I’m not ashamed to admit it! Here are my picks for her best ten songs ever.
10. “Just Like Jesse James”
Not only does the beat of the song rock, the chorus is just amazing: “If you can give it, I can take it; ‘Cause if this heart is gonna break it’s gonna take a lot to break it…” And the way she sings “Come on” over and over again is just goose bump-inducing.
9. “If I Could Turn Back Time”
