“If I Could Turn Back Time” is a song written by Diane Warren and was released on June 1 1989 as the second North American and first European single release from American singer/actress Cher’s 20th album Heart of Stone.

After a small comeback with “I Found Someone” in 1987, Cher’s career hit big with the release of “If I Could Turn Back Time”, which charted at number 1 in Australia and Norway, number 3 in the United States and number 6 in the United Kingdom.

It was very successful and it became Cher’s second consecutive number 1 in the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. It topped the charts in two countries and it became a top ten hit in nearly ten countries. Cher had several subsequent hits including “The Shoop Shoop Song”, “Strong Enough” and “Believe”.

In episode 3-07 (first aired on November 16, 2000) of Will & Grace, Jack meets Cher in a café and mistakes her for a drag queen. She sings a few notes of If I could turn back time to make him understand she’s the real Cher.

In 2001 Cher has released a double vinyl with 3 remix of If I Could Turn Back Time called Cher Vs. Almighty.

The video for “If I Could Turn Back Time” takes place on board the USS Missouri, where Cher sings to a large group of sailors. This video was filmed while the ship was stationed at the former Long Beach Naval Shipyard at Pier D along with the crew. In the music video, the band plays amidships, and the whole vessel is rigged with spotlights, light racks and strobes. The crew is on the deck, waving with the rhythm.
