Song of the Week: "Believe"

Cherie Currie is currently at work on an album, A Taste of Cherie. This single is a nice little preview of what to expect, I think. I'm excited, because despite her earlier solo albums, this is going to be the first time that I'm going to get to hear the kind of music she wants to make, instead of the kind of music the people controlling her albums want her to make. This sure isn't the Runaways, but it's very Cherie, and it's very lovely.

Hi SamuraiFrog,
Cherie Currie here. Thank you so much for liking my song. I recorded that 13 years ago in my living room and it's still one of my favorites.
My new record will not have this song, maybe the next time. The new record I think you will love and has some great rock and roll with a seventies flare.
Thank you so much again for putting my work out there and always, for you kinds words.
They mean so much to me.

Thank you so much, Cherie.

I didn't realize the song had so much history; it's beautiful, and I especially dig the lyrics. The new album sounds right up my alley, though, and I can't wait to hear it.

Thank YOU for putting work out there. It's a dream come true for this fan.

I'm glad she's making music again. Wish i could go back to the 70's again, so many great bands then. I remember seeing Cherie and her sister on the Mike Douglas show. Need to pull my Runaways albums out for a listen. :)

You are going to love this album. Better then I could have dreamed. I love the 70's and feel the music of that time was the best. You'll here it in the tunes.
Hope to do you all proud!
Have a wonderful week and thanks again to all of you. You're ARE awesome SF!!!

Devilham: I am blown away by how lucky I am.

Drake: SO many great bands. I wish I'd been old enough to appreciate it, but at the same time I got to grow up with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts when I was especially formative, and Bowie was still around, and they both led me that music...

Cherie: I'm so excited about this album. I agree, the music of the 70s WAS the best! ESPECIALLY glam rock. No music makes me feel like glam. That's a big part of how I found you and the Runaways. I know just from reading about the kind of music that's special to you that I'm going to dig what's coming.

Can't wait, Cherie. Can't wait.
