The Go-Go's - Turn To You

From the 1984 album,"Talk Show", "Turn To You" was a lesser known Go-Go's tune but had the greatest impact on me. I guess it was because I love this video so much. This early 60's high school rock & roll prom video was meant as nostalgic kitsch for the grown-ups of the 80s, but for a young impressionable kid living in a retarded Michael Jackson world of wack, this was utopia. Nothing's cooler than that era. Go figure, "That Thing You Do!" winds up one of my favorite movies of all time. Aside from the fact that the Go-Go's were gorgeous as both men and women, this song rocks! The driving powers chords, the back-up harmonies, the Belinda's growl, everything in this song to me was perfect.

oh and Rob Lowe...

Here's the Making of:
