#17 Song of 2013

Dear Poptastic Readers,

#17 in my favourite songs of 2013 is “Sun” by Belinda Carlisle. You can click on the song title to see what Poptastic Confessions had to say about it when it came out. 

This was a nice comeback for her as it was her first single in 14 years. And it was a bit dancey to boot! “Sun” is a wonderful song with a great melody and fun dance beat. And you can her Belinda’s Go-Go’s bandmate Jane Weidlin on backing vocals. The video is a live performance.

Hopefully the positive reaction to this song will have Belinda releasing more new music in 2014. Belinda has been higher in my Top 20 charts over the years. But if she keeps this up, she will be back in the Top 10! She even had my #1 song of 1981 when she was with the group The Go-Go's. Here is how her past hits did on my Top 20 lists …

1981: "Our Lips Are Sealed" (The Go-Go’s) #1
1981: "We Got The Beat" (The Go-Go’s) #7
1982: "Vacation" (The Go-Go’s) #5
1982: "Get Up And Go" (The Go-Go’s) #15
1984: "Head Over Heels" (The Go-Go’s) #12
1988: "I Get Weak" #10
1990: "Summer Rain" #9
1996: "In Too Deep" #20

“Sun” is available on iTunes. Don't delay! Buy it today!

Cheers then,
