As Cher revealed two of her favorite songs that she wishes were bigger, her fans certainly comforted her with their heart-warming words. According to Today, “Song for the Lonely” was included on her 2001 album “Living Proof” before being released as a single the following year.
Her other single, "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," was featured on the soundtrack for the 2010 Golden Globe-nominated movie "Blursque." Cher and fellow musicians such as Christina Aguilera, Stanley Tucci, and Kristen Bell starred in the movie.
Regardless of the songs not making it big time, her other songs became a great success, and The Guardian.com ranked her greatest 30 hits. According to the outlet, Cher has surfaced the zeitgeist for twenty-five years.
Among the songs was "Take It Like A Man," which was released in 2013; the pop icon reportedly out-gayed herself with this single. From 1989 was her "After All" song, which firmly entrenched in the moneyspinning late 80s world of soft-rock balladry.
Sticking with her greatest hits, Billboards.com also ranked her top 20's biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits to celebrate her 74th birthday in May. Among the songs' list was the lead song "Half Breed," which is the 1973 No.1 hit.
Cher's other hit songs from the exclusive list: "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves" from 1971, which reached the No.2 spot in the Hot 100 Peak. Last but not least, "Believe" from 1999 reached No.4.
In 2019, the Independent also ranked Cher’s top ten songs to mark her upcoming tour. The outlet compiled a playlist of the legendary singer's finest moments.
At the time, Cher kicked off the eight-date UK and Ireland leg of her Here We Go Again world tour. The songs list is as follows: “All I Really Want To Do, Dark Lady, Take Me Home, The Beat Goes On, Half-Breed and Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) among the few.
