I can’t count the number of times that me and Barrelassin cousin tried to dress like this. We’d watch this video, sing the song and shimmy our shoulders like Pat. We were young, heartache to heartache we stood. No promises; No demands. Oh who am I kidding? Love was certainly not a battlefield for a couple of nine year olds on a dead end street, with nothing better to do than pretend to be Pat Benatar on a Saturday afternoon. But we sure could sing it while making it seem so dramatic. The fake look of pain on our faces must have been priceless as we shimmied our way onto the battlefield of love (probably the Sesame Street swing set in the backyard.)
If I’m being honest, I still love a good shoulder shimmy.
Love is Battlefield Barrelassers. Enjoy it 🙂
