"Wasn't It Good" is a song written by producers Bob Esty and Michele Aller. The song was originally recorded by Cher.

History[edit]

"Wasn't It Good" was released as the second single from Cher's 1979 album Take Me Home. "Wasn't It Good" was officially released in the United States, but in places such as the United Kingdom and Canada the song was only released a promo. The song did enter the Billboard Hot 100, however it was not as successful as its predecessor. The song became a minor hit, peaking at number forty-nine.

The title track "Take Me Home" had previously been released to clubs and managed to peak in at number two on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart; however, "Wasn't It Good" was never released as a club single. Remixes do exist for this song, some were released on the 12" single and one remix can be found of various compilations released in the 1990s.

Although "Wasn't It Good" and "It's Too Late (To Love Me Now)" were released as official singles from the album Take Me Home, neither one has a music video; instead, a music video was made for the titular track and another song from the album, "Love and Pain" which were taped from the highly rated 1979 TV special Cher... and Other Fantasies.
