Song of the Day: 'Dressed to Kill" by Cher

My sister and I went in on horribly overpriced Cher tickets for my mom's birthday this week. As regular readers know, Cher holds a special place in my heart, dating back to dating back to dancing to "Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves" with Mom in her bedroom to watching "The Sonny and Cher Show" with my family when I was a little boy in Detroit. While I'm a huge fan, I'm not the kind who still races out to buy every album she puts out. This irked my Cher-obsessed friend Dishy to no end, so he sent me "Closer to the Truth" to add to my iPod for the trip home this week. As of this writing, I've only played about half of it. The scrapped Lady Gaga duet is still my favorite so far, but the song "Dressed to Kill" plays like such a caricature of Ms. Bono that I haven't been able to stop singing -- and laughing about -- it since! See if you feel the same way don't disappoint me Cher: make sure you give Mom a healthy helping of the past on this tour ... it is going to be your "last," after all.
