28 May 2021 - Jane Wiedlin - Rush Hour

Guys, Jane was my favorite Go-Go.  Let's start there.

That's why I saved this song, her biggest solo hit - top 10 in the US, top 20 in the UK - for last.  

Two things of note about this song:

1) The video is very dolphin-centric, which doesn't really have a lot to do with the lyrics.  It's a great video, for sure. but..... dolphins.  

2) Video of this song being performed live is incredibly rare.  It's complex and tough to reproduce live..... which is why this video from a couple of years ago is such a treat, and required a large band.  

A little bonus for you - two Go-Go's songs from the same performance.  This includes Jane's third verse of "Our Lips Are Sealed" and the Charlotte Caffey-penned "We Got The Beat".
