Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

Go-Go’s trivia courtesy of Belinda’s book

I recently went on a pretty bad Go-Go’s bender after reading Belinda Carlisle’s memoir Lips Unsealed. I couldn’t stop listening to the old albums or watching their videos for a solid week. Have you read the book?

Geez! Sex, drugs. And drugs. And more drugs. And some drinking. But mostly drugs.

Anyway, the book is filled with interesting tidbits about the late 1970s/early 1980s Los Angeles punk scene. And of course, Belinda shares plenty of stories about the Go-Go’s heyday.

For instance, how about this bit of trivia. In the “Our Lips Are Sealed” video, during Jane Wiedlin‘s “Hush my darling, don’t you cry” bridge, if you look closely you can see Jane’s not alone in the backseat of the convertible. Belinda, who was hungover and didn’t much feel like making something called a “music video” anyway, can be seen hunched over in the driver’s seat.

Take a look:

Neat, huh? Are you a Go-Go’s fan? A Belinda fan? Have you read the book?

    Way back, back in time… troglodyte…
    before my small town cable television company deigned to offer Mtv, there was HBO’s Video Jukebox. That’s where I saw this music video and many others for the first time.

  2. Was a HUGE Gogo’s fan, and ran into Belinda and the drummer at an NYC dive bar back then. They were pretty notorious partiers.
