                              • Once Upon a Time in the Top Spot: Cher, “Believe”

                                21 years ago today, Cher performed an unbelievable feat: she became the oldest female artist ever to top the Billboard Hot 100.

                                In fact, there are quite a few unbelievable things about “Believe,” not least of which is the fact that it took months for its original songwriters – Matthew Gray, Brian Higgins, Stuart McLennen, and Timothy Powell – to find someone who was even interested in recording the song. The demo eventually found its way into Cher’s camp, at which point two additional songwriters – Steve Torch and Paul Barry – entered the composition process and turned it into the song you know and love.

                                Well, more or less.

                                After the song was fully written, producers Mark Taylor and Brian Higgins followed the directives of Cher’s executive producer, Warner Brothers chairman Rob Dickins, and turned it into a dance song. The big thing that made “Believe” stand out was the sound of Cher’s voice and the effect that was placed on it, but contrary to past reports, it was not the work of a vocoder but, rather, Auto-Tune turned up to 11 (or some setting well beyond the norm, anyway).

                                As it happens, Warner Brothers originally hated the way Cher’s voice sounded and wanted the effect removed, but per a New York Times interview with Neil Strauss, she replied, “Over my dead body!” Thankfully, she lived, the label kept the effect, and everybody ended up with a #1 hit.

                                Beyond being the oldest female artist to achieve a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, Cher set a few other records with “Believe.” She set the record for a solo artist with the longest span of time between #1 hits (her previous chart-topper, “Dark Lady,” was released in 1974) and the record for the longest gap between her first #1 song (Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe” was released in 1965). It went on to rank as the #1 song of 1999 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot Dance Club Play chart, and it was incredibly popular in the UK as well, spending seven weeks at #1, winning three Ivor Novello Awards (Best Selling UK Single, Best Song Musically and Lyrically, and International Hit of the Year), and – in 2014 – it became the first female solo single to be certified Triple Platinum in the UK.

                                    • How far is “Dancing Queen” from Gold in UK? Last known sales figure?

                                          It's probably around 80,000, think it was about 72k last time we had an update, maybe a little more.

                                            Yeah, I'd say it's at 80-83k. A shame she didn't do a few UK TV appearances during her tour last year...

                                              I think that 'I Got You Babe' or 'Fernando', or even 'Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves' might be next?

                                              Since both TSSS and TBT were released before 1994 they won't get re-certified any time soon. For example, TBT sold 250k in the 80s and 200k downloads plus streams since 2004, so its sales are way over 400k in the UK but half of them were before 1994...

                                                  Also, do you reckon that 'One by One' will get the overdue certification any time soon? It surely deserves it!
