“The Shoop Shoop Song Medley” is Spanish promotional only 12″ vinyl Medley which features “The Shoop Shoop Somg”, “Love And Understanding” and “Save Up All Your Tears”. The single was released to promote the album “Love Hurts”.

“The Shoop Shoop Song” was originally cut for the soundtrack of Cher’s 1990 film Mermaids in which it played under the closing credits, and the single’s U.S. release coincided with the November release of the film. It peaked at number thirty three on the Billboard Hot 100, and number one in the United Kingdom, where it remained for five weeks.

“Love and Understanding” is a song from Cher’s twenty-first studio album, Love Hurts. Written by Diane Warren, produced by Warren & Guy Roche, it was released as the album’s lead single in 1991 for the European and North American market. The song reached #10 in the UK and #17 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

“Save Up All Your Tears” is a song written by Desmond Child and Diane Warren, and originally released by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler. In 1991, Cher released a cover of the song as the second U.S. and third European single from her album, Love Hurts. Cher’s version of the song did well in the U.S. and the UK, cracking the top 40 to peak at #37 in both markets.

Cher – Take Me Home (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 14th June 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

Side 1

DISCO FRIDAY
Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

 

Originally I posted this one in September, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Take Me Home” is the name of a song written by producers Bob Esty and Michele Aller. The song was originally recorded by Cher.

“Take Me Home” was originally recorded by American singer and actress, Cher. The song was released as a single in 1979 and became Cher’s first top ten single in the United States in five years, since “Dark Lady” in 1974. It would be her last for almost another decade, until “I Found Someone” in late 1987. “Take Me Home” hit #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, #21 on the Hot Soul Singles chart and #2 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. The single also charted in Canada and Norway, peaking at #10 and #9 respectively. In 1979, the RIAA awarded Cher with a Gold certification for the album for sales of over 500,000, and a Gold certification for the single for sales of over 1,000,000.

The b-side “Wasn’t It Good” was released as the second single from Cher’s 1979 album Take Me Home. Wasn’t It Good was officially released in the United States, but in places such as the United Kingdom and Canada the song was only released a promo. The song did enter the Billboard Hot 100, however it was not as successful as its predecessor. The song became a minor hit peaking at number forty-nine.

Cher – I Found Someone (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th March 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

REQUEST

“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.
