I forgive The Go Go’s even though they aren’t supposed to have an apostrophe in their name. You don’t use an apostrophe for plurals. They were the first pop band I listened to. My friend and I mouthed the lyrics while we performed for one another when I was in fifth grade. They were fun and cute. They had the beat.
Last year, I attended a joint concert with The B-52s and The Go Go’s. I thought I’d enjoy the B52s more, but I was wrong. When the Go Go’s play live, they have an edgier sound. And I heard they used be an edgier band until they were bubble-gummed up by their record label.
Our Lips are Sealed:
At 1:40 Jane Wiedlen sings. I loved her voice and hoped that a curly, brown-haired girl like me could be as pretty as her.
This is the concert I saw in Boston last year. Here they’re playing “Vacation”.
They were fun to listen to back in fifth grade and they’re still fun songs to bop around to in concert now.
Honorable Mention: Genesis, Peter Gabriel
