Here Are 20 Pop Songs That Turn 20 This Year

Cher, "Believe"
Before T-Pain took Auto-Tune to grade school, Cher invited the world to its baptism with "Believe," a mashup of dance-pop and European club music that didn't sound like anything else on the radio in 1998, which is probably why everyone -- from adults who thought of her as a throwback to children who had no idea what a Sonny Bono was -- couldn't get enough of it. It hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Cher the oldest woman to ever top that chart at age 52 -- a record that sadly still holds.

They should re-release it later this year!
But it's awesome she still hold the record almost 20 years a later, even if does mean the industry is ageist more than ever...

^ha! we can wish!

Seriously, I hope she does a slightly different set list than the Classic Cher show.

Why would she? At a public event she should be bringing her biggest and best hits. That said, I’d like to see her sing something from Mamma Mia 2 :D

^Cause singing Pride or TILAM would make so much more sense at a LGBTQ event, than I Got You Babe haha? Still, it's gonna be amazing, no doubt Aussies will give her LOTS of love when she gets here!

The 'Edith + Eddie' documentary, for which Cher is one of the producers, got an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Short!

Last night at the bar my partner and I frequent, I heard "Hell On Wheels" on the Touchtunes jukebox. Why was that song not a bigger hit? it's amazing. I like it much more than "Take Me Home" from her disco period.

Can't wait!

Hope she gets involved w/ her bio musical as a producer or something so she'd win a Tony and be the 1st female singer to become EGOT (by winning all the awards in competitive categories :D :D :D )!
Soon it will be 2 years since this tweet... and.... I'm still waiting :D :D :D

Well the musical is happening, she’s already made the movie musical and recorded for the soundtrack (Mamma Mia). I’m guessing the 2nd CD (she doesn’t claim its studio album) either isn’t happening or it was going to be a live album or new GH issued alongside the musical debut?

She did the GAP commercial and no sure about the status of her perfume. Not sure what the surprise could have been but maybe she wanted to do Mardi Gras last year?

Anyway, watched 'Call Me By Your Name' and they mention Sonny & Cher in the movie, TWICE! So cool!

I loved the first Mamma Mia movie but Cher staring in the sequel is the main attraction of the second film for me. I'm so hyped to see her acting again. :D

From the latest interview in Australia, Cher said she's working on new music, 2 movies, an appearance on Will & Grace is an option, as well a full tour, and her other song in Mamma Mia is 'Super Trouper'!
