  • This was another hit for Pat Benatar during the early '80s, but it was something of a departure from her typical sound. She sang in a high key, and some radio listeners mistook her for Deborah Harry from Blondie. Benatar and Harry both appeared in the 1980 movie Union City, although neither sang a note. >>

  • Neil Giraldo, who is Pat Benatar's guitarist, wrote this song by himself. Over the next few years, Giraldo would become Benatar's producer and bandleader, and also her husband: they were married in 1982 and have been together since.

  • Don from San Antonio, TxThis was my favorite song of hers. When I first heard, I did indeed picture a blonde, but not Debbie. More of a Farrah Fawcett with tight Jordaches.
