That Was My Jam!: “Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar

30 Nov

This song is the business! The shoulder action kills me every time. Yes, little black girls in Detroit in the 1980’s were probably not the biggest demographic buying her album, but I loved this song. It’s so fun, so 80’s and it has that female empowerment angle that so many pop songs during that time had. What happened to that?

    Glad you like my blog! The 80’s decade definitely has a lot of bad things appropriately and justifiably attached to it, but there was definitely some good too, namely all those goofy movies. Sixteen Candles, The Goonies, Say Anything, The Breakfast Club….I love that stuff.

    I’m really amazed how quickly our culture as a society has crashed. Hate and racism hasn’t really changed, it’s been silenced. I remember the 1980’s having fun and the music was crazy funny. Hip-Hop was not as gangster [ I love RUNDMC ] Rock N Rollers really knew how to play guitars.

    People were less worried about how they dressed. I do have to say the 80’s had some really bad fashion statements but then again one has to experiment at some point. πŸ™‚ [updated I had a few typo’s]
