The Definitive Pop Collection is the seventh compilation album by American pop rock duo Sonny & Cher, released in 2006 by Rhino Records.

Album information[edit]

It was released in 2006 and didn't enter in album charts.

The Definitive Pop Collection contains Sonny and Cher's hit songs from the 60's, including "I Got You Babe" and "The Beat Goes On". It also contains Cher solo songs, like her successes "All I Really Want To Do", "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)", and "You Better Sit Down Kids" and Bono solo songs like "Laugh At Me" and "My Best Friend's Girl Is Out of Sight".
