Song of the Day: "Dark Lady"

Cher’s song, “Dark Lady,” has always been one of my favorites of hers. It is one of those songs that tells a creepy story—it’s got that grim, almost scary feel to it, like “Hotel California,” or “Thriller.” It also reminds me of songs like “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” where the supernatural is not to blame for violence and death, but people. In “Dark Lady,” however, the story told is a mixture of both the paranormal as well as human involvement.
