Song of the Day: 'Head Over Heels' (live on Broadway) by the Go-Go's

A post shared by Jane Wiedlin (@janewiedlin) on

The Go-Go's made a surprise appearance on Broadway last night, where I hear they performed "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "Head Over Heels" with the cast of their new musical. The New York Times did a fun piece about five of the show's songs, -- producer Richard Gottehrer is pretty bitchy about the "Vacation" album(!) and Belinda Carlisle had this to say about the title track:
That was the beginning of the end, that album. We were run ragged, we didn’t know how to say no. The song has an upbeat, cheerful melody and lyrically it really captures the darker side of fame and fortune — I had an appreciation for the lyrics then but not like I do now in hindsight.
 I'm slated to finally see a preview of the show a week from tomorrow!
