Song information[edit]

"Main Man" was released as a promo CD in the United States and as a 7" inch single. In 1988 in order to promote the song, a music video was filmed and Cher sang "Main Man" during the MTV Video Music Awards. After consideration, Geffen Records decided not to officially release the song.

Critical reception[edit]

Jose F. Promis of Allmusic highlighted the song and called it "wonderfully sweet ballad."[2]
