BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“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.
