We made this recording as a Valentine gift for all the lonely hearts on that Hallmark Holiday for lovers. Love is a battlefield, my friend, and we all are the walking wounded at one time or another.
I have loved this classic 80's Pat Benatar track since I was a wee lad. It has been in my songbook for over a decade and it has morphed from style to style with my own musical evolution.

It has been given the doom blues treatment here. And I hope you agree that it comes across as a powerful dirge on the cutthroat nature of passion and it's power to confuse and disorientate those trapped in its thrall.
