We Got The Beat
Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles wrote a song for another member of another all-girl group. Hopefully you shouldn't have had much difficulty figuring out that this person was Belinda Carlisle of The Go-Go's, a track called I Need A Disguise on the 1986 album Belinda. Never heard it? No, neither have I. ..... OK, strike that. I have just heard it on YouTube. If you're interested, it's the first song you hear on Belinda's 1987 VHS video Live At The Roxy. It's pretty awful. So I am not sharing it here.
OK, next question.
The Go-Go's had a hit with "Our Lips Are Sealed"... whose real-life romance was it purportedly about? (Hint: they wrote the lyrics).
