The Hit That Almost Wasn’t!

It’s hard to imagine Pat Benatar’s uptempo anthem for the brokenhearted as anything else – especially a slow, regretful ballad narrated by a woman scorned in love. Lucky for us, with Pat’s legendary voice and unique spin on rock music, ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ went from slow and sad to strong and anthemic, making it the most iconic song of the 80’s and Pat’s biggest hit yet!

Fun Fact: Pat’s record label and manager hated ‘Love Is A Battlefield’!

Pat was the only one who believed in her own song’s potential, saying, ‘That was a song written very slow, very methodical, boring. I mean, it was really slow. As soon as I heard it, I went, ‘I don’t understand why this song would be so slow.’ I just heard it done in the uptempo thing.’

Against her team’s wishes, Pat recorded and released the rendition of ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ that we love so much today. The song ended up debuting at #5 on Billboard Top 100.

There’s a lot to be said for believing in what you do, even if no one else does!
