Every now and then I listen to some music from my past. The songs of Pat Benatar remind me of my teen years; and the times when we would belt out her songs to the accompaniment of her music. How I loved the power of her songs, and the crescendos of the music. My favourite always was “We Belong”:
“Love is a battlefield” always came a close second.
I still enjoy listening to her music – though I do not play it now as much as I used to. I remember always feeling grateful that she never became the opera singer that she was trained to be. Instead she peppered my adolescence with songs that I still remember today.
Did you ever listen to Pat Benatar?
