Cher: Half Breed

Quite possibly the best thing I have ever posted.

I think she works at one of their casinos?

I remember this performance from "The Sonny & Cher Show". I didn't appreciate her vocal strnths back then...but now I'm quite impressed (though I'm more of a Pat Benetar admirer).

But, Omigosh! She looked slim and striking in that bikini. Quite a contrast from the oppressively sad lyrics of the song.

BTW, she's got some competition for "Best Thing You've Ever Posted", Flea: Remember Tootsie (for their harmony yet their contrasting voices) and Paul Roland ("The Great Air Raid" for esoteric steampunk splendor)?
Still, she beats the heck out of Shakira's bizarro lycanthropy!

When I saw Sonny & Cher in concert (after their divorce), she wore an all-red version of this outfit. She was absolutely gorgeous and she sounded great.
