Hit Me With Your Best Shot: Unauthorized Edit


Pat Benatar is an incomparable rock vocalist and Hit Me With Your Best Shot one of my all-time favorite songs. But every time she sings:

"You've a long history / of breaking little hearts / like the one in me," I wince.

The line should obviously be:

"You've a long history / of breaking lovers' hearts / like the one in me." Why didn't she have me look the lyric over before she released the tune, one of the greatest ever recorded?

Oh well  . . . .

Next time, Pat. For you I'm available 24/7. Call me, any old time you can call me.
