The Go-Go’s is an all-female band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1978. The main lineup includes five lovely women, consisting of Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, and Kathy Valentine. Together, they’ve released four full-length albums, including the #1 album Beauty And The Beat, which included their biggest hit to date, the #2 chart-peaking single “We Got The Beat.”
The Go-Go’s haven’t recorded any new material since their 2001 release, God Bless The Go-Go’s, but the ladies continue to tour and do live performances.
Of the five band members, Belinda and Jane gained additional fame with their solo careers. In 1988, Jane had a Top 10 hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 with her hit “Rush Hour.” My favorite remix of that song, as well as her other singles, is listed below. You can also check out my article of favorite Belinda Carlisle remixes by clicking here.
FUN FACT: The music of the Go-Go’s has been featured in a tribute Broadway musical show called Head Over Heels, which ran from 2018 to 2019.
