Roxy’s Retro 11/9/21 Pat Benatar “Heartbreaker”

THIS YEAR’S ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY WAS RECORDED A WEEK OR SO AGO AND WILL BE TELEVISED LATER THIS MONTH, BUT IT WILL AGAIN BE INCOMPLETE WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST ROCKING VOCALISTS THAT HIT IN 1979 AND HELPED DEFINE THE ROCK SOUND OF THE 80’S…THE FACT THAT PAT BENATAR HASN’T MADE THE ROCK HALL CUT IS AN ABSOLUTE HEARTBREAKER…THE SAME NAME AS HER BREAKTHROUGH SINGLE OFF HER DEBUT ALBUM IN 79… I WOULD SING THE LYRICS I DIDN’T QUITE UNDERSTAND BUT LOVED AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS INTO MY HAIRBRUSH IN MY VERY 70’S MEADOWOOD SUBDIVISION BEDROOM. THE SINGLE WAS AN INSTANT CLASSIC AND EVEN GARNERED PATTY THE BEST FEMALE ROCK VOCALS AWARD FOR 4 YEARS STRAIGHT, BUT STILL…NO ROCK HALL INDUCTION…YET…PAT BENATAR’S ‘HEARTBREAKER’, TURN IT UP AND GET THOSE HAIR BRUSH MICS READY! ~ROXY
