Cher Singing “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”
In the midst of Christina Ricci’s stories of how Cher trained her on the business of show while they were on the set of the 1990 classic Mermaids, Marc Maron blurted out that he’d recently watched Cher singing The Rolling Stones‘ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
Scrambling to YouTube, I found her 1975 performance of the Stones breakout hit, (in addition to several other instances on The Cher Show where she covers a song better than the original always with the same slow build and unfurling of her coverup).
While on the subject of, ahem, “Satisfaction,” I also recently imbibed all four hours of My Life as a Rolling Stone, a well-told docu-series covering the four mainstay Stones members’ lives. The best episode, should you only have time for one, is the one focused on recently deceased drummer Charlie Watts. More on that episode in a future post.
