I enjoy her singing. The rest I ignore.

Bono wrote [with Jack Nitsche] one of my favorite songs, "Needles and Pins", done by [among others], my favorite band, the SEARCHERS.  :dx1:

The last time I saw Sonny was on a late night TV talk show. He was asked about Cher. He said the reason she acted that way towards him is she never got over him. About a year later he died and Cher was a mess. He seemed to be correct about that.

Live on Letterman, 22 years after their hit song, after their TV era, after their divorce and a year before his death.

Like her or not, she was/is an accomplished singer, comedienne, and actress.

He was an accomplished songwriter, Entrepreneur/showman, congressman.

Sonny seems to cry a bit at the end of the song.

Hollywood has a way of wrecking marriages. The stress, the temptations, the constant beseigement from all angles. Yet, somewhere deep down, if two people love each other, they never stop, even in the toughest of times.

Sonny and Cher is one perfect example. They both moved onto other spouses, but within two years, they were back working together. Another example is Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Their TV show eventually tore them apart, but once cooler heads prevailed, especially near the end of Desi's life, they were once again very close to each other, even though both had remarried by that point. Like Cher, Lucy was never the same after Desi died (although the failure of her last sitcom may have also been a factor in that).

But for Sonny Bono no one would even know who Cher is.  He was the brains, she had the voice.
