The Beat Goes On: The Best of Sonny & Cher is the sixth compilation album by American pop rock duo Sonny & Cher, released in 1991 by Atco/Atlantic Records.
It was released in 1991 and did not enter the album charts.
The Beat Goes On: The Best of Sonny & Cher is a collection of Sonny and Cher's classic Atco era; the compilation covers a lot of ground for a single-disc anthology.
Besides the duo's hits, it includes some Bono solo singles, most notably the 45 edit of "My Best Friend's Girl is Out of Sight," from his 1967 solo album Inner Views. None of Cher's solo material is here, which lends a slightly lopsided view of the duo's history.
A handful of their songs, such as "Baby Don't Go" and their breakout "I Got You Babe", represent the peak of a certain style of commercial folk-pop that was one of the defining sounds of the 1960s. It also includes lesser-known tracks, like the full-on Phil Spector tribute "It's the Little Things," the waltz-time "A Beautiful Story," and a spoken-word b-side called "Hello,".
