Last week I found some sweet videos online:
Sonny & Cher sing "The Beat Goes On" on a French show. The Frenchman are all dressed alike! Great Cher smile (and early dancing). Sonny loses his jacket. The cameraman is all up in her grill.
Sonny & Cher sing "I Got You Babe" in 1965 with Cher in her Union Jacks pantsuit. What an innocent young girl!
Sonny & Cher sing "The Beat Goes On" in the early 1970s. So much more confidence!
Sonny & Cher sing "All I Ever Need is You." Was this the inspiration for The Police video "Wrapped Around My Finger?"
Interview and Cher singing "You'd Better Sit Down Kids". What is sonny wearing?
Sonny & Cher singing "Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear." What? Is this the inspiration for the Prisoner album cover?
Sonny & Cher singing "All Shook Up." Some early Cher hand hanging.
Sonny & Cher singing "Treat Me Nice." Are they wearing tshirts?
- Do You Love Me
- A wild medley
- An Elvis Medley
- We’re Gonna Make It -- great synchronized dancing
- I Feel Something in the Air -- I love the Beat Club stuff, awkward crowd
- Mama (When My Dollies Have Babies)
In two videos, Sonny sings “talk about it.” You'll remember this command well from the Sonny & Cher Live album. Two videos also include some early Cher hand hanging. This was not completely a 70s phenomenon.
