We Got The Beat, or something
Tonight I was checking out YouTube and the video for the song was promoted, so I watch it.
Man, Belinda Carlisle was quite peppy in that video, even while wearing high heels.
But, watch another video of the same song, and it looks like she's just phoning it in. "Yeah, we got the beat, I guess, or something."
The amazing thing is that they are 'pert near grandmothers by now. The lead guitarist/keyboardist Charlotte Caffey is 53. Carlisle is 49 (wonder if she still has that baby fat?). 'Course, they were in their mid twenties when their hits came out, and I suppose 1982 is a few years ago by now...
Another bizarre song related fact - Children conceived while their parents listened to Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" are now graduating from high school.
