Hard.

But, considering it's closer to current days, "Believe".

"I Found Someone" is my fave, though.

Obviously it's Believe, but really it's a trilogy - I've Got You Babe is the signature song of Sonny & Cher era, Turn Back Time is the signature of everything that happened before Believe, and Believe is the signature of everything happened since.

Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.

Yes. Believe for the modern generation and the latter for the classic generation.

If we talk about Cher, then it is Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) for me

She has signature songs from various decades, not necessarily judged by how well known they are, but also by their use in movies, TV shows, documentaries, how many times they were covered, etc.

60s: I Got You Babe, Bang Bang
70s: Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves, Half Breed
80s: If I Could Turn Back Time
90s: The Shoop Shoop Song, Believe

Too bad she didn't have a huge hit after the early 2000s, though 'You Haven't Seen the Last of Me' has the potential of becoming one of her most iconic songs, after she's, you know, 'gone', which will probably and hopefully not happen for a long long time :wink:

Believe, completely.

If Believe had never happened it would've been I Got You Babe.

I'd say her signature song is "If I Could Turn Back Time" in terms of summing up the entirety of her career. "Believe" was her biggest hit, and indeed it was the song that invented auto tune, but given how powerful Cher's voice used to be for so long, if anything that makes it totally not her signature tune.

Don't really agree with the last part, while the verses and the chorus have auto-tune, the bridge in 'Believe' - the 'I don't need you anymore' part shows off Cher's vocals, and her famous vibrato, very well.

To the general public its definitely Believe. Even if you just hear the word 'believe', most people think of Cher.

Shake It Off definitely seemed to be the announcement of pop Taylor.
It's time for the 2000-2009 Female-Led Singles Countdown!
and my Top 100 Artists countdown!
More? How about a survivor based on a countdown?
