Pathos With Pat Benatar
I got the laptop out to work on my book revisions and guess what was lurking in the CD player...my trusty Pat Benatar CD. Yum. It feels like fate.
Because I'm a sad old chick of the eighties this Pat Benatar song was in the charts when I was stuck in a hospital in Belgium nursed by nuns, no word of a lie. A school trip involved being hospitalised. So it's fitting now that I crank it up whilst ill. Back then, it was the only thing I could recognise on Belgian radio...it left a mark. A time full of teen angst and longings (my physio was a rather dishy footballer with a hero-worthy smile...yep, you couldn't make it up!) I was about fifteen at the time.
Anyway, here's the things I love about Love Is A Battlefield:
The vid is like a short movie from TrueMovies channel. Kinda cheesy but very satisfying
I love the movie sound effects. Drama, drama
The fashion is both disturbing and great. If I ever go out dressed like that, permission to handcuff me to the fence
I particularly like the dance duel element. Bizarre being the operative word. Reminds me of Strictly, was it a precursor?
So. When will the shingles quit the warfare? I can only hope soon.
Oh and I now have a book title for the bridesmaid book! It's a great one.
