Being a child of the 80s, you did not grow up as a young girl and escape the intoxicating power of the all-girl band, the Go-Gos. I can distinctly remember watching them on American Bandstand–young women playing instruments, and kicking ass. I was hooked. With their distinct surfer-girl, upbeat pop the 80s were a perfect time for the Go-Gos.
As lead singer of The Go-Go’s, Belinda Carlisle hit the charts with the hits with ‘We Got the Beat’ & ‘Our Lips are Sealed’ before pursuing a solo career in 1984. Her first solo album, 1986’s “Belinda” featured the number three hit single “Mad About You,” (featuring her real-life husband at the time <3) the record went gold and established her as a viable hitmaker.
The following year, Carlisle released Heaven on Earth, her greatest solo success. Continuing the immaculately produced mainstream pop of Belinda, the record featured the number one title track, the number two single “I Get Weak,” and the Top Ten ballad “Circle in the Sand.” Runaway Horses, released in 1989, was another successful album, spawning the hit singles “Leave a Light On” and “Summer Rain”.
