25 May 2021 - Belinda Carlisle - Mad About You

Belinda Carlisle's first solo release was this song.  It peaked at #3 in the Untied States and was a hit worldwide.  Featuring Andy Taylor from Duran Duran on guitar (yes, he's in the video), the video also features her husband - who she married three weeks before this song was released in 1985 (they're still together, people).  

Jane Wiedlin and Charlotte Caffey of the Go-Go's sang bankground vocals on this song, and replacement Go-Go (for Jane Wiedlin!) Paula Jean Brown co-wrote the song, so any rumors about acrimony in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band were not well-founded.  In fact, this was almost a Go-Go's song - but when the band split, the song went to Belinda.
