80s flashback - Pat Benatar - "Love is a Battlefield"

I am without dispute a child of the 80s. I grew up with the music, the movies, the styles, the trends. Yeah, lots of stuff went wrong in the 80s too, but I prefer to focus on the good stuff, the stuff that made me happy. :)

So, I'm going to reminisce on occasion about random things in the 80s.

One of the quintessential performers in the 80s was Pat Benatar. She was opera-trained, but she really wanted to sing rock music, and belt them out she did. They weren't necessarily happy songs, but they were pretty amazing. And she had even more amazing videos. The 80s were when music videos rocked.

Here's "Love is a Battlefield". I always loved the choreography in the bar when the women are all dancing together. Stupid guy trying to boss them around - they're going to dance all over you! I think I actually tried to duplicate the moves. I said "tried", not "succeeded".
