Another embarrassing affection I refuse to apologize for

I like many of Cher's songs.

Yes, I understand all the criticisms you can reasonably level at her, but I like quite a few of her pop hits, and I refuse to apologize for liking them.

Consider this one, for example.

Overdone?  Silly?  Needlessly sexy video?  Yes.  Yes.  Yes.

I don't care.  I love it.

And then this song, the very best cover of a great song.

I love the Marc Cohn original, but I also adore Cher's cover, which she makes her own.  I even love that she plays the Elvis part.

Yes, you can reasonably call me shallow for liking Cher.  I don't mind.  When the music works for you, it works for you.

These--and many of her other songs--work for me.
