Slice of Time Line


Sonny and Cher's Comedy Hour always started with one of their songs.  For some reason this one has special meaning to me.




The Beat Goes On, about 4 minutes.



Sad that time goes on and on.  Sonny died in a skiing accident. Cher is still around, but her face has turned into a mask.

  1. I didn't know that was a Sonny and Cher song. I knew the song though. My youngest used to like Britney Spears when he was a young tween. She had that song on one of her albums believe it or not, lol!

  2. And on we go. Yep, a mask indeed, plastic galore.

    1. Cher has always been an elegant woman,talented and compassionate. Seeing her face seemingly frozen is saddening.

  3. I still admire Cher. Back then it was for things like no bra under that dress. Later I realized she was a good actress and an incredible business woman. Believe me, if I could, I'd still have perky little boobs.

    1. Cher was outrageous! On prime time, bra-less, in exotic flesh revealing clothing, Cher set a new trend, that looked good. At least, on her, it looked good.

  4. But if you close your eyes and listen things are still as they were. Of course, eventually you have to open your eyes again.

  5. Time does go on for sure. I don't think we'd be happy if it didn't, we wouldn't grow old, that's true, but children wouldn't grow up, there wouldn't be progress, or maybe there would but not as much. I wouldn't like things to stay exactly the same forever. I'm not a fan of change but somethings are better for it.
    I remember that song and just recently removed it from my ipods as I was finding it annoying, along with several other songs.

  6. Time and too much plastic surgery and lip filler are not kind. However, Cher can still belt out a good tune.

  7. I remember the Sonny and Cher Show. I loved those shows when I was a kid. I don't remember them all that well now (I was pretty young), but I do remember watching them.

  8. Sometimes time seems to move on too quickly.
    I always enjoyed listening to these two and Cher has also produced some good solo records ...

    All the best Jan

  9. I loved this one too and their show was fun. Celebrity faces all look alike now, I can't even tell them apart. Or know who they are any more. I miss Helen Hayes and her wrinkles.

  10. That little clip sure brings back memories! I used to watch their show regularly, too. Seems like soooo long ago!
