The Go-Go’s debut album, Beauty and the Beat, was released on July 8, 1981. They were one of the early punk girl groups to crossover to pop and hit big. Real big.
Let’s celebrate with some covers of their biggest hit, and the latest addition to my Greatest Of All Tunes list, We Got the Beat. And some covers of other Go-Go’s hits as well, after the break.
THE GREATEST OF ALL TUNES (G.O.A.T.) is a series of posts, producing my 100 favorite songs of all time. The master list is here, and I update it about every two weeks or when I have another 10 songs or so.
