Cher – I Found Someone (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on March 20th, 2012



“I Found Someone” is the name of a chart single originally written and composed for Laura Branigan by Michael Bolton and Touch keyboardist Mark Mangold. The song was a bigger hit for Cher in 1987, reaching the Top 10.

The most successful version was released by American singer/actress Cher as the first U.S. and European single from her nineteenth album, “Cher” and was released on November 19, 1987 by Geffen.

The song debuted on the UK Singles Chart in November 1987 at number 91 and peaked at number five in January 1988 and spent thirteen weeks in the chart.

Part of a much-heralded musical comeback at the height of her movie career, a big-budget music video featured the singer-actress with her then-boyfriend Rob Camilletti. The couple were a big story in the tabloids at the time, as he was seventeen years her junior, and the video was the aspiring actor’s debut. The video was in heavy rotation on MTV and Cher’s version went to #10 in the U.S. and to #5 in the UK. An alternative concert video features Cher in a dress that was also used in The Black Rose Show in 1980.

“I Found Someone” began a three-album association with Bolton and Cher’s other contributors, including Branigan alumnus Diane Warren as well as Jon Bon Jovi and future boyfriend Richie Sambora, and their song-writing partner Desmond Child.

    Very nice to have a quality rip of the extended version (although it’s only 20 seconds longer). I’ve looked for a CD release of this version for many years on Cher’s many compilation releases, but to my knowledge it’s nowhere to be found in master quality.

    You’re welcome Stefano 🙂

    Oh how i LOVED this song when it came out. I was beginning to delve more and more into House music around this time, but i always had a soft spot for Cher. I mean, how could you not?

    Thank you, once again paul!

    You’re very welcome Ray!

    Cher really made her comeback at the right time. Hair Metal was red hot and since Cher has already got the hair, so why not do a Rock album!?!? It took time still, as I remember this, together with Miami Sound Machine’s Can’t Stay Away From You, charted and crawled up the Hot 100 in late ’87. Thanks for this “extended”…LOL!
    But poor Laura Branigan…despite having her greatest success with covers (Gloria, Solitaire and Self Control), she’s also had the lesser hit with many of her versions (The Power Of Love and How Am I Supposed To Live Without You). She also didn’t get to release her version of Der Kommissar when After The Fire beat her to it.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    I love this version but I have a soft spot for Laura’s version maybe because she wasn’t as over the top.

    wow, yet another post of something i didn’t even know existed! thanks! btw, i do have an import 12″ single of laura branigan’s “deep in the dark,” which sounds an awful lot like “der kommissar!”


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Feanor sounds cool i will have to locate a copy of that one.


    ric Reply:

    Feanor, Deep In The Dark is her cover of Der Kommissar

  9. Rick Says:

    Many, many thanks!

    Over the years your rips have gone from excellent to state-of-the art Pauly; no doubt the hardware upgrades have helped, but your great ears and talent are your greatest asset and we’re the lucky beneficiaries!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thank you so much for the compliment Rick. I really appreciate it very much 🙂
