the rock & roll hall of fame continues to be the most sexist institution in the country.
they have a new list of nominees. cher is not on the list.
as early as 1989, she qualified to be inducted.
that was while she was scoring hits and had just grabbed an oscar for best actress.
they didn't induct her.
in the 90s they didn't induct her. even though she had the biggest hit of her career and the biggest hit of the decade with 'believe.'
she scored hits in the '00s but no induction.
she's coming off burlesque and another hit single ('you haven't seen the last of me') this year and they still won't induct her.
her hits outnumber the bulk of the male artists who have been inducted.
she 1st hit with bob dylan's 'all i really want to do' (as a solo, she also had hits with sonny)
'gypsies, tramps & thieves'
'take me home'
'we all sleep alone'
'i found someone'
'heart of stone'
'just like jesse james'
'after all' (duet with peter cetera)
'if i could turn back time'
'save up all of your tears'
'love & understanding'
'song for the broken hearted'
those aren't all of her hits, just some of them.
she's the rocker who had hit variety shows (cher and the sonny & cher show). she's the rocker with the successful movie career who won an oscar.
and there's no room for cher in the rock and roll hall of fame?
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
