pop cher female vocalists 90s rock


"One by One" is the first American and second European single by American singer-actress Cher from her twenty-second studio album, It's a Man's World. It was released on January 5, 1996 by Reprise Records and WEA. Song Information In 1987, Liverpool-based musician Anthony Griffiths penned the song for his band, "Jo Jo & The Real People". It was not intended to be released as a single. The band later shortened their name to The Real People and it was not included among the 12 tracks of their eponymous debut album The Real People in 1991 on CBS Records. In 1995, Cher recorded the song and released it in 1996 as the first U.S. and second European official single for her twenty-second album It's a Man's World. The song was virtually unknown prior to the release of Cher's version. For Cher, although Walking in Memphis was chosen as the first single, One by One proved to be more successful in the United Kingdom when it charted at number seven. In the United States the single performed fairly on the Billboard's Hot 100, but was a big hit on Billboard's Adult Contemporary, Hot Dance Club Play and Hot Dance Singles Sales charts. Music Video The original video was released in the United Kingdom, which follows the story of an unhappy couple who struggle with problems, but later make up when they realize how much they actually love each other. When the video was released in the United States it followed the same concept, but some scenes were added and some were taken off, the beginning was also much different including animations which followed the beat of the song. Finally a third video was released due to the popularity of the single's club remix. Dan Rucks or most famously known as Dan-O-Rama remixed the video by using a combination of both original videos. The remix used for the video was the Junior Vasquez vocal edit. Notable live performances * Cher performed the song on the fifth leg of her The Farewell Tour. The Junior Vasquez Club Vocal Mix was sung as part of the "Love Medley". * The song was performed the in U.S. on Late Night with David Letterman in 1996.[1]

One by One - Cher

When you pray with every breath
You know that is free as the love you have
Where does it end It's too much for me to take
There's no peace, you close your eyes I'm all out of truth, I'm outta alibis
Where does it end
It's too much for me to take

[Chorus:]
We're gonna love one another 'til morning comes
Seek the sweet salvation for what we've done
Give up resisting one by one
One by one
He gives a new kinda meaning to what I am I know that I could never love any other man
One of these days you'll understand
Understand

And his face his heaven sent
He makes me believe there must be something else
Where does it end It's too much for me to take I can feel the need in you
There isn't a thing, I want you do
Where does it end It's too much for me to take

[Chorus x 2]

We're gonna love one another 'til morning comes
Sweet salvation for what we've done
Give up resisting one by one
One by one

We're gonna love one another

[To fade:]
We're gonna love one another
Give up resisting one by one
One by one
