The only Cher song that I like and perhaps because of the candor in it. A song about regret and I think it was about her relationship with Sunny Bono, a great classic rock song. This performance was part of VH1’s Divas series that they did annually in the late 1990s and early 2000s. No idea if they still do that, but Cher whatever you think of her certainly qualifies as a diva. Great voice, great personality, great body, certainly very entertaining. And she’s lived a hell of a life and with comes with that comes a lot of regret. Things you wish you shouldn’t have said and done and perhaps got caught up in the moment and took out your anger on someone. “If I Could Turn Back Time”, again great song, but it is sort of like saying, “if only I owned a helicopter, I would be able to avoid rush hour traffic everyday.” People aren’t tested by what they would have changed if they could go back. You learn from mistakes and then move on. We are tested by how react and carry ourselves in the moment. The better we do in real-time, the fewer mistakes that we’ll make as we move on.
