Mermaids is the album from the film Mermaids starring Cher, Winona Ryder, Christina Ricci, and Bob Hoskins.

The album was released in Europe on November 13, 1990, and on December 8, 1990, in the U.S. The album also peaked at #65 on the Billboard 200. Two singles, both recorded by Cher, were released to promote the soundtrack: "Baby I'm Yours" (originally recorded by Barbara Lewis), released as the first European single, and the worldwide hit "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)" (originally recorded by Betty Everett), which was released as the second European single. It was also Cher's first single from her album, Love Hurts. In the U.S., "The Shoop Shoop Song" was the first single from the soundtrack.

"Baby I'm Yours" was not a success, only reaching #89 in the UK Singles Chart. However, "The Shoop Shoop Song" was a worldwide hit, becoming Cher's second #1 hit in the UK. The song also peaked in the Top 10 of almost every European country, but failed to receive much attention in North America, peaking at #33 in the U.S. and #21 in Canada. Although the success in mainstream airplay was not as strong in North America, the song did receive strong adult contemporary airplay in both the U.S. and Canada, peaking at #7 in the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart and #4 in the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart.
