Cher - The Look

Cher is one of pop's biggest icons. She's been making music for just over 40 years and is still going strong. I've been lucky enough to see her in concert twice and she always puts on a fantastic show - especially her wigs and costumes!

She has gone through many musical changes from her days with Sonny Bono, through her understated 70s period (Dark Lady is a classic), 80s stadium rock through to her dance reinvention of the late 90s and early 2000s, which rejuvinated her career, with hots such as "Believe", "Strong Enough", "All Or Nothing" and "The Music's No Good Without You". Cher recently toured the world with her Farewell Tour which seemed to go on forever! I wouldn't put it past her touring or releasing music again...

The track I have chosen is taken from the Japanese version of Cher's 2003 album Living Proof. "The Look" has more of a latin vibe to it (reminds me a bit of Santana) than the dance feel the rest of the album has, so maybe that's why it was left off the UK/US release, but it's still a fabulous track, complete with key change!
