Average points: 4.81 (Reviews: 63)
Finde ich wiederum nicht. Zwar deutlich weniger gut als "Gypsies, Tramps and Thiefs" oder "I got you babe", aber dennoch ein erfreulicher Oldie von Cher. Flott, gut gesungen, schöne Melodie.

Finde ich mindestens ebenso gut wie "Gypsies..." Dieser Titel war für knapp 25 Jahre ihre letzte # 1 in den USA. 1974 hatte sie gerade eine wahre Glückssträhne mit dieser Art pseudo-autobiografischen Titeln, die überaus melodramatisch inszeniert waren. Die Lyrics sind echt der Hammer.
Starke Nummer mit starkem Text. Wird auch heute von Cher auf allen ihren Konzerten gesungen, immer wieder toll!
Mystic song with good lyrics, musically certainly weaker than her other # 1's.
'Then I remembered her strange perfume,
how it smelled ... it was in my own room!'

This strange song got a lot of criticism as it was strongly promoting revenge and self-righteousness. So: weak, after all. Nevertheless, it topped the American charts, early 1974. If wasn't - still am - not too fond of it. Peaked at only $ 43 in my charts.

Zwar nicht ganz so packend wie "Half Breed", trotzdem ein Kandidat für 6 Sterne.
einfach toll. sehr guter text, sehr gute melodie und eine wunderbar passende, unvergessliche stimme
dark lady laughed and danced.. amazing ;)
Kann weder mit "Half-Breed" noch mit "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves" auch nur ansatzweise konkurrieren. Bei diesem Lied kommt ihre phantastische Stimme auch nicht recht zum Tragen.

Edit: Nach mehrmaligem Hören, - besonders auf den Text achtend (So what?) - kann ich nun doch keinen weiteren Sterne zücken.
Der Song kommt dennoch nicht mit den oben genannten mit, weder melodisch noch textlich.

@ holger56: Danke für den Tipp mit Filmchen auf YouTube. Der ist wirklich nett gemacht. Aber: Wie sollte ich den Text nicht verstanden haben. Das gehört zu meinem Job, oder?

Packend, da hört man doch gern hin, auch wenn der Titel etwas älter ist.
Aufgerundet. Muss mal aus der Reihe tanzen... Weder Fleisch, noch Fisch. Hört sich eher nach einem 70er GP/ESC-Titel an, der insgesamt so ungefähr 14 Punkte sammeln konnte.
Kann sein, dass ich diese Nummer eher schwach finde, weil mir die Klangfarbe des Refrains überhaupt nicht zusagt. Außerdem überdeckt der Chor Cher im Refrain.
Ist wohl seit 2 Tagen mein "neuer" Lieblingssong von Cher... kannte ich vorher noch gar nicht. Geht richtig ab!!!
Nicht schlecht. Vorläufig ****.
I love it. Cher means what she's singing!
Auch einer ihrer stärksten 70er Hits.

Damals hatte noch kein Chirurg Hand an sie gelegt.
genau...je früher ihre songs desto besser gefallen sie mir...
einer meiner Liebesten von Cher.
gut, aber nichts weltbewegendes...
Makaber, aber toll gemacht.
@pwill, bandito: versteht ihr überhaupt den Text?
Wenn nicht, auf Youtube gibt's dazu ein Comic
Einzigartige Lyrics, spannende Melodie und eine super aufgelegte Cher. Genial!
Nicht schlecht, aber der Refrain passt eher zu einem Lalala-Song.
...find ich klasse, Text hin oder her...
Damals starke Nummer - fein
▒ Goede plaat van nu inmiddels 62 jarige Amerikaans zangeres en actrice van Armeense afkomst "Cheryl Sarkisian LaPiere" alias "Cher" uit januari 1974 (Holland) !!! Ze had er in februari 1974 een kleine hit mee in de Nederlandse hitlijsten !!! Net geen 5 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 6 wk / # 17) ☺!!!
gefällt mir gut 4+
Muy buena.
Ist okay
ein überaus stimmiger Pop-Titel mit Klatsch-/Stampfeinlagen - 4.75...damit 1974 auf #10 in Norwegen...
-sehr gut-
Wunderbare alte Nummer
Peaked at #17 in Australia, 1974.
Jam. Love it!

Geen grote hit, maar wel een prima plaat. Goed voor een kleine 4 sterren.
Neben 'Half-Breed' und 'Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves' ihr dritter Supersong aus den Früh-Siebzigern. Knapp 6*.
ganz ordentlich!
Starker Song, kommt aber nicht ganz an Gypsys, Tramps And Thieves ran
... nicht von schlechten Eltern ...
Einer der Highlight im musikalischen Schaffen von Cher
Cher weiss hier zu überzeugen
Toller Song
einfach aber gut
Bleibt hängen.
Ein ganz nettes Stück.
Den Song mochte ich anfangs gar nicht.

Mittlerweile aber etwas aufgestiegen, die Strophen sind hier aber besser als der Refrain. Aber gut arrangiert und toll gesungen von Cher.
mooie 70's track van Cher
mooie onderscheidende stem heeft ze ook
find ich ganz gut
Großartige Nummer, verströmt eine wahnsinnig dichte Atmosphäre!

Ahhh, was für ein cooler Videoclip (Cartoon):

Hitje uit de jaren 70 en haar laatste hit gedurende 12 jaar in Nederland, tot haar comeback eind jaren 80..... leuk nummer !
Dritte US-Nummer-1 für Cher, wieder ein sehr schönes Stück Musik.
gute 5*

CDN: #2, 1974
USA: #1 (1 week), 1974
Ich finde die Nummer einfach nur Bombe, für mich eine klare 6!

War übrigens auch eine #4 in Südafrika, #9 in Dänemark sowie #36 in England!

In UK (#36) war der Song bei weitem nicht so Erfolgreich wie in den USA (#1).
Cher's dritte Nummer 1 in Amerika und die letzte in der 70er Hit Trilogie mit dramatischer Musik und Texten: "Gypsys" ; "Half-Breed" und "Dark Lady".
Großer Klassiker!
Lernte ich eher ziemlich spät kennen. Mit das Beste was ich von ihr kenne. Hat Kraft, Drive und Charme.
