Like last summer, I’m getting away for a week’s vacation in the most beautiful spot on earth. It’s something of a “busman’s holiday” since I will be doing volunteer tasks the whole time, but I love it!
When I was thinking of writing this post, what should pop into my music-obsessed head but the video “Vacation” (1982) from The Go-Go’s. Remember them? They are indeed memorable because they “…made history as the first, and to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts.” (Wikipedia, via Billboard)
The tune is catchy, the video is corny, and the ’80s styles are laughable, but have fun!

Now go put on your tiara and have some vacation fun this summer! See you in a week. :-D
