"Love Is A Battlefield" by Pat Benatar

It was one of the MTV era's first smash hits, a story video so perfectly melded with a solid pop-rock song that even today, if played at any venue where Gen-Xers are assembled, all will fall into its dance steps as if by habit.

Love is a Battlefield featured the first electronic elements of any Pat Benatar song, signalling the deep inroads European pop had made into the world of American rock; originally appearing on her 1983 album Live from Earth both the song and the video were so popular as to be ubiquitous.

Hello Michael Sean! I've been reading your blog. It is amazing, too much interesting information here!

By the way, I guess soon you write on the other blog. I miss your writings.

Soon I'm living in Vancouver. Haha, and I've never made a canadian friend there. I guess meet you.

Best wishes!

It'll certainly be nice to meet you; my Spanish isn't good or I'd read more of your blog. I included it on my blogroll, though.

I loved this song, but forgot to look up the artist.

Thanks Micheal
