Sonny and Cher

Sonny & Cher (husband and wife duo) in 1965 were labeled the first hippies for their fashion and hairstyles.  Their harmonic sound was unique in their own way.   Their first hit songs were "The Beat Goes On" and "I've Got You Babe". They made a movie during 1965 called "Good Times" which I remember going to see at the theater.  The clothes seamed really strange to me until 1967 when I also dressed in bell bottom pants and tops.
In the early 1970s they had their own variety show, when the girls in my school couldn't wait to see what Cher was wearing every week.  Soon after the show was canceled, Cher left to go on her own music career and divorced Sonny.  Sometimes, I think she regrets having  left Sonny.

Here is a clip of them from 1965.
