If I Could Turn Back Time

1) The official video for this song was filmed on board the battleship USS Missouri. When is the last time you were on a boat or ship? two summers ago I was on a ferry boat going to Chebeague Island

2) This song was written by Diane Warren. Ms. Warren has written love songs recorded by Celine Dion, Toni Braxton, LeAnn Rimes and more, yet she's never married and has really only had one serious romantic relationship. She acknowledges this makes her an unusual spokeswoman for the glory and pain of love. When you have a relationship problem, who do you go to for advice? I don't ask for advice

3) In this song, Cher wishes she could turn back time and have a different conversation with a former lover, changing what she said to him. Here at Saturday 9, we're not so ambitious with our time travel. We're only going back to yesterday. Is there anything you'd do differently? I would go to the poetry reading at the local library

4) In 1966, Cher and her then-husband Sonny sang at a private birthday party for Jacqueline Kennedy. At first, Cher didn't want to do it, thinking that performing to a small gathering would be awkward. But it turned out to be a wonderful opportunity for her. That night, she met Diana Vreeland, the editor of Vogue. Vreeland liked Cher's look so much she set up a photo shoot. Cher, who always loved experimenting with hair and makeup, enjoyed the shoot immensely. Tell us about a social gathering where you had an unexpectedly good time. I went to a mystery dinner and it was so much fun trying to solve whodunit by interviewing the characters

5) At that same party, Cher said she was surprised by how big Jackie's hands were. Do you like your hands? I love my hands--they are super soft

6) One night, before a performance in Detroit, Cher saw a little furry something under one of her tour buses. It was a kitten that that she named Mr. Big, hoping he would grow into the name. He did, and the tomcat was her constant companion for four years until he died of a congenital heart ailment. She has said that she will "never not miss him." Is there a furry companion who has a special place in your memories? the dog of my childhood, Mopsie, I still dream of her

7) Cher recently appeared in Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. It's the second movie based on the music of ABBA. What's your favorite ABBA song?
that's like choosing a favorite student--they're all amazing

8) In 1989 -- the year this song was popular -- Mattel released a series of special "Scarlett O'Hara" Barbie doll to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Gone with the Wind. Did you enjoy the classic movie? Have you read the book? ok, I admit I have never seen the movie nor read the book--BUT--it's because I would never be able to get the Carol Burnett spoof out of my head!

9) Random question -- Check your spam folder and tell us one of the subject lines. "I need to be spanked!"

It's been surprising to me to find out how many people have never read GWTW. I thought it was a requirement. LOL. But I agree with you, when I think of that movie now the first thing that comes to mind is Carol Burnett.

Oh, I love the Carol Burnett spoof! One of her best. Thanks for reminding me of it. I wonder if it's on youtube . . .

Miss Kwiz, it would appear from #9 that someone has been very naughty

Stacy said...

That Carol Burnette spoof is hilarious. We have a DVD of her shows around here somewhere and I think that's on it. I'm going to have to go find it and watch it now.

The mystery dinner sounds like so much fun! I would love something like that.
Mopsie sounds like a very special friend. Glad you had time together. Loved your answers! Have a great weekend!

Another GWTW escapee! Yay for us! 👍🏻 I like ABBA, too. A sort of Amped, semi-mechanized sound without outrageous Splash!
