I saw Sonny and Cher at the Civic Auditorium in San Jose way back in the year this song came out. Think it was 1965 when I was 16. The song was a hit but they were new and unknown. Along with Bobby Freeman (The Swim), they opened for Paul Revere and the Raiders that night. In this clip from that year, Cher is shy with her crooked teeth and funny nose and Sonny looks like a pauper right out of the Robin Hood days.

Of course after their divorce, Sonny went on to become the mayor of Palm Springs, and later died, and Cher went on to become a superb actress, superstar performer and deserving diva. This is my fav clip  of her after the transformation.

As Buffalo would say, life is sweet when you have entertainment like this.

    I thought Cher was much more interesting when her nose was long and her teeth were crooked. But I’ve had a blast cruising your tunes – some good ones, for sure!

    Cher has always been one of the best examples of the wonders of plastic surgery.

    Merry Christmas Brian to you and yours. And I love that first video. I remember wearing an outfit very much like that in those days. Geez. What were we thinking?

    Happy New Year to you and yours Brian.
