This video brings me back to happy times. I was just starting out in the world. Going to school and working my first job. I met my first serious boyfriend, who turned out to be a creep. but I didn’t find out till two years later. Anyway, I played the CD and VHS video over and over again. I love all the songs on the CD. Mad About You and Band of Gold are my favorites.
Belinda Carlisle started her solo career with this CD. When I saw the CD cover and video for the first time, I was blown away by her glamours image. I always loved the Go-G0s since they first appeared on the scene. They were fun carefree girls having a ball. It was nice to have a girl group to look up to back in those days. Madonna, Cyndi Loper, Pat Benatar were all heroes to me.
I love Belinda’s sex kitten look. It’s a look I have always liked no matter what the decade. Two years later, she came back with Heaven on Earth and I loved that cd as well. She had gone red and it look so good on her. Made an impact on me and few years later after failing as blonde, I went red too.
There are interviews and a bit of the back story on how this Mad About You CD came to be. Belinda touches a bit on how her life had taken a positive turn. She had a new husband who seemed to be the complete opposite of her but it worked and they are still married today. I am going be getting her book soon. She has had an interesting life so I look forward to reading it.
