“Love One Another” by Cher

Cher’s “Love One Another” is a general love song, as implied by the chorus, and it is one that is explicitly put into a macrocosmic context. So we don’t have to burden ourselves trying to figure out what type of relationship it is based on, as it fundamentally pertains to all interpersonal relationships. 

And as a premise, what the vocalist is essentially putting forth is that on the inside we’re all the same. In other words, there are emotions that are universal to the human experience. And by implication, one of them would be a need for love. So that is why she is calling on us all, “sisters and brothers”, “father and mother”, to “love one another”.

And of course, Cher is not your run-of-the-mill pop artist. So she gets even deeper than that in the second verse, acknowledging the human tendency to put up a prideful front when offended.  But at the end of day, it requires a more humble disposition to get over matters. For only “when two people stand together” can a damaged relationship be ‘healed’. 

So with all of that in mind, she also calls on us to be more peaceful than confrontational and to make a conscientious effort to get over past beefs. And conclusively, the thesis sentiment is like life can only be enjoyed in its fullest when mutual love is being practiced.
