Songfacts®:

  • This powerful Diane Warren penned ballad is from the soundtrack to the musical film Burlesque. Cher co-stars in the movie as the proprietor and headliner of a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club. It is her first movie musical.
  • This song marks Cher's first new original song in over seven years, her previous release being "Love One Another" in 2003.
  • Diane Warren also wrote Cher's 1989 international hit single "If I Could Turn Back Time."
  • A remixed uptempo version of the ballad reached #1 on the Dance/Club Play Songs chart released by Billboard on January 20, 2011. Having achieved at least one chart-topper every decade since the 1960s, Cher became the first act to have notched a #1 single on a Billboard chart in each of the last six decades. So how did the evergreen singer react to the news of her latest chart success? She quipped to Billboard magazine, "How can it be six decades when I'm only four decades?"
  • The song won a Golden Globe Award for best original song at the ceremony held on January 16, 2011. However, it didn't receive an Oscar nomination, a decision that provoked Cher to express outrage. She tweeted: "The Golden Globe 4 BEST SONG & not even get nominated by the OSCARS? Oh well it is..what it is…the sun is still shining!"

Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"They're Playing My Song

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
