Happy 45’s week! This week we are going to explore a few more of my random 45 collection.
I’m not sure how to store them/ file themas none of them have slip covers. Suggestions?
I’ll be picky about what I keep or don’t! We begin with a gem from the great diva CHER !
Living In A House Divided.
“Living in a House Divided” is a song released by Cher as the first single released from the album Foxy Lady. The song’s lyrics discuss the separation of a couple. It peaked at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 on the Adult Contemporary chart. It reached number 21 on the Cash Box chart. “Living in a House Divided” was a Top 20 hit in Canada. The song did, however, fail to reach the success of “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves“, despite the fact that this was also the first single to be lifted from a Cher album. The song is a rather poignant descriptor of Cher’s marriage to her husband, Sonny. Due to Cher’s feelings of resentment of Sonny’s control of both her life and her career, their marriage soured. They divorced two years after this song became a hit.
