Things You Didn’t Know – Cher

Cher is not usually a topic of conversation around here, but I found this one kind of interesting…

Before Cher was Cher, the guttural songstress went by the name of Bonnie Jo Mason. Bonnie Jo’s first single, produced by Phil Spector, was the Beatlemania inspired Ringo, I Love You. The song did not get sufficient airplay to even give it a chance in America, as local radio stations believed Cher’s low vocals to be those of man, and considered it a homosexual love ballad. Yeah.

Here are the lyrics to Ringo, I Love You. Imagine Cher belting this one out with her cheeks hanging out of her pants on a battleship…

Ringo, I love you yea yea yea
More than anything in this world
I wanna be your only girl
Please let me hold you
Ringo, they say yea yea yea
I’ll never get to hold you tight
But still i dream of you at night
Please let me hold your hand
I want to run my fingers through your hair
I want to let you know how much how much I care

Ringo, I love you yea yea yea
More than anything in this world
I wanna be your only girl
Please let me hold you
Ringo, Ringo, more than anything
I want to wear your ring
Oh Ringo, I love you
I wanna be your girl, girl, yea, yea

And, of course, the song itself. Enjoy!
