THROWBACK THURSDAY: BELINDA CARLISLE

I was pleasantly reminded of my love for Belinda Carlisle when I heard her ridiculously catchy tune “Mad about You” on Scream Queens when the girls are beating the bejeezus out of this frat guy. Good stuff. ANYWHO, I have always loved Belinda. I remember working out a harmonized version of “Heaven is a Place on Earth” with Abby during our lunches in high school.

Before she went solo, she was one of the renowned Go-Go girls! How awesome is that?!?! She had several hits with them, including the ever-popular “Vacation.”

Belinda is a queen of catchy melodies. Seriously, her stuff STAYS with you, so much so that you avoid listening to her (even though you secretly love her music and never really mind). When her music comes on in the elevator, in a store, or an overcrowded restaurant, you can’t help but tap you feet and put a smile on your face. It’s THAT good. Brava, Belinda!
