Fierce Females: Belinda Carlisle

belinda carlisleOoooooh heaven IS a place on Earth!

I kinda knew I was a fan of this Sunday’s Fierce Female when I was 8 and asked my sister to give me a haircut to look like her. Belinda Carlisle made such a huge impression on me as a kid I thought she was just gorgeous…oh and I thought her music was awesome too!

As a member of the Go-Go’s in the early 80s Belinda became a part of the first all female band that wrote all their music and played all their own instruments – woohoo GIRL POWER! Obviously we all remember their hit Alex the Seal Our Lips Are Sealed, but it’s as a solo artist where BC really shone and she consistently brought out amazing pop tunes like Mad About You, Leave A Light On and my personal favourite Summer Rain. I got to see her a few years back and it was amazing how many songs I sang along to – girl was a hit machine!

This Sunday I raise my crimper and toast Belinda Carlisle – her songs truly were the soundtrack to my childhood and they still manage to put a smile on my face when I hear them now.
