Cher Gets the Tears Flowing With Sentimental Cover Of ABBA's 'One of Us:' Listen
While we only got a small piece of Cher in the most recent Mamma Mia! movie, the pop goddess is making sure that her fans get what they came for -- a full album titled Dancing Queen, with the diva singing covers of iconic ABBA songs.
So far, the “Turn Back Time” singer has released stunning covers of “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” and “SOS,” but her newest addition may be her best yet.
Today (Sept. 21), Cher released her cover of the iconic ABBA breakup song “One of Us,” marking the third and final single to come off of Dancing Queen. While the original song is filled with funky melodies and rhythms to mix up the depressing lyrics, Cher trades them in for a piano and a few violins, making the already-melancholy song a bonafide heart-wrencher.
Fans of Cher can listen to the full album of her ABBA covers starting next Friday (Sept. 28), and can even see her performing her covers live — the star announced earlier this month that she would be taking Dancing Queen on the road via her new Here We Go Again Tour. Cher will not only sing the classic ABBA numbers, but also treat her fans to some of the singer’s most iconic songs.
