This epic feel-good ballad was previously recorded by Miley Cyrus for the soundtrack to the film The Last Song, which co-starred her former fiancé, Liam Hemsworth. Cher told Billboard magazine that she was attracted to the song as its lyrical content stands out in contrast to most tracks concerning matters of the the heart. "Love songs are [usually about] 'I'm looking for love' or 'I've lost love,'" she said. "They're usually not 'I found love, I lost love, and now I hope you find love with someone else.' Usually we're not that charitable."
This mysterious and wildly eclectic singer/songwriter talks about some of his most memorable songs and collaborations.
Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
Mike Watt - "History Lesson, Pt. 2"
Mike Watt of the Minutemen tells the story of the song that became an Indie Rock touchstone. It's also the story of what Mike calls "The Movement."
