Cher – If I Could Turn Back Time
Maybe Cher was not really an 80’s icon; she was famous before, in the 70s with her former husband Sonny Bono and their tormented story, and after a decade of oblivion shecame back to celebrity in mid 1989. And she stayed on the crest of the wave ever since! During her careen she has been famous for many reasons, and her songs are just the top of the iceberg. We already talked about Sonny and Cher, and when she got back at the end of the 80s she impressed the world for her eternal beauty, her incredibly fitted body, probably helped by science without even hiding it too much.
And she was famous also for some of her provocative behaviours; for example, she realized the video of this song in collaboration with the us navy at the beginning of July 1989, with the additional purpose of enabling easier recruits. But Cher showed up with a look that was very different from the agreements, aggressive and teasing, and maybe excessive for the US navy. Some said that it was excessive also for her 43 years (at the time), an age taht in the 80s was much heavier than today’s forty-some’s.
Yet Cher went straight on, without compromising, and she achieved whatever she wanted to. At he end, she is the winner, because she is not only a great singer and artist, but she is especially a strong tenacious woman who can always point into the right direction. Her direction, of course!
