I've been brought down to my knees
I've been pushed right past the point of breaking
I can't take it
I'll be back, back on my feet
This is far from over
I'm far from over
You haven't seen the last of me
No, no, I'm not going nowhere
I'm staying right here
I like it. I think you will as well. Diane Warren always struck me as one of the writers who really got Cher. I think she wrote "Main Man" (besides the obvious hits like "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "We All Sleep Alone.") "Main Man" is, to me, one of the little known gems of Cher's 80s output.
The Press Trust of India reports that, for Cher, the two who got away -- or two she would have liked to have sampled -- were Marlon Brando and Elvis Presley. I don't know about that myself. She says that she had a date with Elvis but chickened out and that I could see happening to me with Elvis, I would absolutely chicken out. But Marlon?
For me, his hot period was Streetcar so I missed out on that. I think he was a great actor but by the time the 70s rolled around, sorry, not into his 'appeal' especially with that ridiculous pageboy haircut he was always sporting.
Cher also received a Glamour Women of the Year Award (her award was a lifetime achievement award) and she said in her acceptance speech, "I've had huge losses. It just makes me keep going. No is just some word somebody made up."
If I have time on tomorrow's plane ride home, I will attempt to write a Cher piece covering the 80s. Keep your fingers crossed for me and do not be mad if I'm not able to and it's next weekend instead.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
