Retro Video Classic – Go Go’s Beatnik Beach
We were talking Go Go’s this morning and Susan mentioned that her favorite Go Go’s video was the one of them water skiing. How she remembers this random, and somewhat obscure things, amazes me sometimes. We pretty much had MTV tuned in on the Wozniak household television from 1980 until 1993, and I did not remember this one at all.
As we were talking, I referred to the Behind the Music that featured them and talked about their VERY rocky path to fame, fortune and the end of the group. In it they revealed that some of the girls were not only not musicians, but there were varying levels of cluelessness, especially at the beginning. Here is a live performance from 1982 of Susan’s favorite song. What do you think of their chops?
Finally, here is the full Behind the Music episode I was talking about. It’s a gem.
