RETRO: Pat Benatar “Promises in the Dark”

Posted February 28th, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Guilty pleasure: After watching American Idol’s current crop of ladies go down in flames last night, I realized not one of them can even remotely touch the glory of Pat Benatar in her heyday. Even when these girls try to rock out, it’s just kind of sad and puny. I suppose technically some of them can sing well enough, but it’s all so forced and unnatural and completely un-rocking. Just listen to the notes Benatar hits in this song. It’s unreal, and it rocks the fuck out.
