Song of the Day: 'Through the Seam' by Belinda Carlisle

Just came across this 2018 clip by the head Go-Go, who recorded the song for the musical adaptation of "B Is for Beer," Tom Robbins's 2009 novel about a young girl exploring the world of beer. (Was that the sequel to Carrie Bradshaw's book about the little girl named Cathy and her magic cigarettes that allowed her to “go anywhere in the whole wide world, like Arabia or New Jersey"?) Belinda also played the role of the Beer Fairy, alongside Laura Silverman, Jon Cryer, Paul F Tompkins, Busy Philipps, Rose Byrne, Alex Wyse and Cary Brothers. 

Apparently it was workshopped at the Largo in West Hollywood -- with Steven Weber! -- but never officially got off the ground.

At least it's not chanting or in French this time ...

Belinda has two solo songs and two duets on that album.
There's a reason it never took off. I love Tom Robbins but...
