Sonny & Cher – “The Beat Goes On” – (1967)

This isn’t a duet in the same vein as the other duets we’ve featured. Sonny & Cher were a duo and thus, all of their songs were duets. This song was written by Sonny Bono. This song made it to #6 on the Hot 100 and it remains one of their best-known songs.

Cher & Peter Cetera – “After All” – (1989)

This is one of those huge adult contemporary singles from the late 1980s – it topped that chart for four weeks in 1989 and only peaked at #6 on the Hot 100. It was featured in the movie Chances Are and was nominated for an Oscar (which The Little Mermaid ended up winning). This should be an easy song to mock, but I’m not on a VH1 clipshow so I won’t mock it. It really isn’t terrible and reminds me strongly of the early 1990s when it was played constantly.

#161 – Cher – “Believe” – (1998)

I could not be less of a Cher fan, but when this song came out, I didn’t know who Cher was and I was easily won over by the ridiculous electronic sound of this song. Plus, it was everywhere (and if you didn’t like it when it came out, it was probably because you thought too highly of yourself).
