I've always liked this song -- this is the first I've heard it with Cher.Thanks, Terry.
Cher will always be a babe..I wish I had her legs..Sara
I like this one, too.
I wish I could like this; I really do.Cher just creeps me out; sorry.The song is very nice, though. The male vocalist (Marc Cohn) is great.A line in the song reminded me of a line in the movie, "New in Town", which we just saw last week (it's a great 'take' on Minnesotans/Sconnies/etc.)..."Are you Christian? Tonight I am" or something like that reminded me of one of the first things the lady from New Ulm, MN asks Renee Zellwegger (a corporate executive from Miami who lands in the stone-cold Mn winter...) "Have you found Jesus?"To which Ms.Z. replies without a pause, "I didn't know He was lost!"LOL!!I died laughing!!'I'm a Christian for tonight.'Yeah!!Isn't that typical?!:<)!
Have to say T-man, I like I too, and never thought I see myself write that about this song.
"Are you a Christian" - "Man I am tonight!" is my favorite line.The movie sounds funny - "I didn't know he was lost." LOL!
"Tell me are you a Christian child?" And I said "Ma'am I am tonight" Me too Terry. I just LOVE this song. It is an ode to WC Handy. I think that is why it is so good. When it came out I used to love zooming around in my acura, quite drunk, listening to it...gone the litte car and gone the boubon...They've got catfish on the table They've got gospel in the air And Reverend Green be glad to see you When you haven't got a prayer But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis Now Muriel plays piano Every Friday at the Hollywood And they brought me down to see her And they asked me if I would -- Do a little number And I sang with all my might And she said -- "Tell me are you a Christian child?" And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"
