Music Video Of The Day: Pat Benatar 'Love Is A Battlefield'

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 1, 2013 10:30PM

Here's a classic of the early MTV era. Pat Benatar (30 years old in 1983) stars as a teenager kicked out of her home who travels by bus to the big city and becomes a dime-a-dance girl and feminist. We can still do the shimmy.

Benatar and her husband and longtime guitarist Neil Giraldo will be in Chicago Sunday, Nov. 3, for a concert at the Copernicus Center in Jefferson Park (5216 W. Lawrence Ave.). Benatar has Polish heritage so it's cool.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
