THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: CHER - JUST LIKE JESSE JAMES

Just Like Jesse James
"Just Like Jesse James" is a 1990 top ten hit, the third North American and second European official single release on October 1989 by Geffen Records from American singer-actress Cher's twentieth album Heart of Stone. The song was written by Desmond Child and Diane Warren.

The song peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in January 1990, becoming Cher's third top ten single from Heart of Stone in the US. It also peaked at #9 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. The song was released in the UK in December 1989 and peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1990.
Cher has stated during concert performances that she never cared much for the song, in part because there are so many lyrics in it that she has to sing, but she acknowledges that many of her fans cite the song as one of their favorites. For this reason she added the song to her Farewell Tour. A montage video of Cher's earlier music videos and clips from western movies was produced to promote the song.
