Radio 66, side B, track 12: “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar - Hit Me With Your Best ShotOh, Pat Benatar, here’s another song that I knew all about when I recorded it off the radio.  Not because I’d heard your version before, but because I’d heard the Chipmunk version.  Before I recorded this, I had no idea that there was a lyric about your lipstick case.  In the version I knew, it was about charming you with my charm and grace before another chipmunk comes to take my place.  I know, Pat Benatar, maybe it doesn’t have quite the same emotional impact, BUT I have to say, thanks to “Chipmunk Rock”, I was already really well-versed in early ’80s awesome rock.
