Cher / If I Could Turn Back Time

KNOW YOUR BASS PLAYER JUMPS THE SARKASIAN: Session ace John Pierce anchored this Diane Warren penned hit though I’m not sure if that’s him in the clip.

I maintain strong recollections of The Beatles on Ed Sullivan, Neil and Buzz’s lunar steps, Nelson Mandela's release from prison …however, to my eyes, those vivid video (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) images pale in comparison to the revelations of “If I Could Turn Back Time” on MTV (1989).  

I still weep uncontrolably at the one- minute mark wherein Cher straddles the shaft of the USS Missouri’s rising gun turret.
