Early career and The Go-Go's

See also: The Go-Go's

Carlisle's first venture into music was a brief stint as drummer for the punk band The Germs, under the name Dottie Danger, although illness prevented her from ever performing with them live. Soon after leaving this band, she founded The Go-Go's (originally named The Misfits), with friend and fellow music novice Jane Wiedlin. With bassist-turned-guitarist Charlotte Caffey, guitarist-turned-bassist Kathy Valentine, and drummer Gina Schock, the Go-Go's became one of the most successful American bands of the early 1980s, helping usher new wave music into popular American radio, and becoming the first all-female band in rock history to ever achieve a #1 album, who also wrote their own music, and played their own instruments. The Go-Go's recorded two more studio albums (including 1982 Vacation, which went gold thanks to the title track). "Head over Heels," from their 1984 album Talk Show, made it to #11, but they never repeated the success of their 1981 multi-platinum debut, Beauty and the Beat, which featured the hits "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed".

The antics of the Go-Go's, in the early- to mid-1980s, contrasted with their public image. Since then, the group's notoriety from that time period had become something of a legend, involving drugs and sex. Years later, in a 2007 interview with PlanetOut, Carlisle said that the band had female groupies, and said: "Well, without going into too much detail... I think all of us in the band, we've all had... we've all seen the experience you are probably wondering about. And, yeah, like I said, without going into too much detail, we've all been there and done that."[1] See also: 2007 in country music 2007 in British music 2007 in hip hop 2007 in metal Albums released in 2007 Musical groups established in 2007 // January George Shearing is knighted for services to music in the Queens New Year Honours List. ...

Solo career

Belinda

The Go-Go's broke up in 1985, and Carlisle embarked on a solo career (although she continued to work with fellow Go-Go Charlotte Caffey). Carlisle's first album, Belinda, was released on I.R.S. Records, in 1986. Her #3 Summer hit "Mad About You" was followed by the Motown-influenced single "I Feel the Magic", and by a cover version of "Band of Gold".

Heaven on Earth

Carlisle changed her hairstyle significantly for her second solo album, giving up her California Girl blonde bob for a long auburn do for 1987 Heaven on Earth. The musical style eschewed the 1960s-influenced pop of Carlisle's first album in favor of slickly produced 1980s power-pop, and was released in the United States through MCA, and in the United Kingdom through Virgin. The album became a Top 5 bestseller in the UK and Australia, and was nominated for a Grammy Award. The album's producer, Rick Nowels, previously worked with Stevie Nicks, and would later collaborate with Madonna.

The first release from Heaven on Earth was the semi-title track "Heaven Is a Place on Earth", which topped the single charts, not only in the U.S., but also in the UK and Australia (the dance mix of the song also topped the dance chart). The radio-ready song was further propelled by a video, directed by Academy Award-winning American actress Diane Keaton. The second release from Heaven on Earth stormed to U.S. #2, and was another UK Top 10 smash, "I Get Weak," written by Diane Warren; it was accompanied by another Keaton-directed video. The third single and video from the album was "Circle in the Sand," another Top 10 hit in the U.S., the UK and Germany too. "World Without You" was another British hit, followed by 1988 low-charting ballad "Love Never Dies", making this her fifth single from the album in the UK.

Runaway Horses

Carlisle's follow-up to the success of Heaven on Earth was Runaway Horses, released on October 23, 1989. The album again hit the Top 5 in both Australia and the UK, certified double platinum in Australia and platinum in the UK, but failed to reach similar success in the U.S. The first release, "Leave a Light On", peaked at #11 in the U.S., and became another Top 5 smash in the UK and Australia. The song features a slide guitar solo by George Harrison (see 'Collaborations'). The second U.S. single, "Summer Rain", reached #30, in Spring 1990. The song, which Carlisle noted was the most difficult song she had ever sung up to that point, peaked successfully at #6 in Australia, where it has maintained popularity, and the tune saw a cover version, in 2004, by the Australian group Slinkee Minx. Whereas in the U.S. Carlisle's success was decreasing, her popularity remained big in Europe and Australia. In 1990, further singles from the Runaway Horses album were successful as well: the title track, the summer mood influenced "La Luna", a Top 20 hit in Germany and Australia, covered by German band Commercial Club Crew, German singer Maroma, and Croatian band Magnetic, and the powerful rock hymn "(We Want) The Same Thing", slightly remixed before single release, which became another Top 10 hit in the UK.

In the late Autumn of 1990, the Go-Go's reunited for a tour to support their first best-of album, Greatest, including a new recording of the cover song "Cool Jerk" (Go-Go's original cover featured on Vacation). A notable feature of the tour was an anti-fur campaign, where the band members supported People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or PETA, an animal rights organization.

Live Your Life Be Free

In 1991, Carlisle released her fourth solo album, Live Your Life Be Free. The album marked somewhat of a return to 1960s-influenced music for Carlisle. The single "Do You Feel Like I Feel?" was accompanied by a tongue-in-cheek video, inspired by the B-movie Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. The title track, "Live Your Life Be Free", merged 1960s influences with producer Rick Nowel's trademark bombast, and featured a video that emphasized colorful imagery, fashion, and Carlisle's photogenic face. Subsequent releases, "Half the World" and "Little Black Book", were also hits outside the U.S., and although Live Your Life Be Free as an album flopped in the U.S., it was a success in Europe (Top 10 in the UK), while the title track was a Top 20 hit single in the UK and Australia. "Do You Feel Like I Feel?" was Carlisle's last single so enter in the Billboard Hot 100 chart peaking at #73.

The Best of Belinda Vol.1

Carlisle broke her contract with MCA, her U.S. record company, in 1992. Still active in Europe and Australia with a record contract at Virgin Records, her 1992 greatest hits album, The Best of Belinda, Volume 1, reached #1, and was certified double platinum in both the UK and Australia. This first greatest hits album of her included all the hits taken from the Heaven on Earth, Runaway Horses, and Live Your Life Be Free albums, only omitting the ballad "Love Never Dies", and the three I.R.S. singles from her first album, namely "Mad About You", "I Feel the Magic", and "Band of Gold"; also no soundtrack song features on the collection.

Real

Carlisle's fifth solo album, Real, was released in 1993, on the Virgin label, in the U.S. and in Europe. Produced without Nowels, the disc was a departure from Carlisle's polished pop music formula, returning instead to the Go-Go's hard punk rock of their earliest demos (some of which would shortly after be included on their 1994 double collection Return to the Valley of the Go-Go's). Gone was her glamorous image and picture-perfect pop too. Even the album's cover photograph featured her with very little make-up, which perfectly matched the album title. Carlisle co-produced and co-wrote much of the disc, collaborating heavily with friend and former Go-Go's member Charlotte Caffey. The album reached #9 in the UK, and its first single, "Big Scary Animal", peaked at a respectable #12 placing in the UK. The second single from Real was "Lay Down Your Arms", which made the Top 30 in the UK. Real is the fifth album by Belinda Carlisle released in 1993. ...

After the Northridge Earthquake, in 1994, Carlisle and her family moved to Europe. The Go-Go's reunited again, later that year, to support the retrospective double-CD Return to the Valley of the Go-Go's, their second collection, which featured three new songs, including the single "The Whole World Lost Its Head", and the following immortal couplet: 'Mary ate her little lamb/And punk rock isn't dead'. However, the band broke up soon after the promotional tour. Carlisle has since lived in France and England.

A Woman and a Man

Carlisle returned to the recording studio, and resumed working again with Rick Nowels. In 1996, she released in the UK and Australia her sixth solo album, A Woman and a Man, on the Chrysalis Records label. This album, consisting of mostly relaxed adult pop, revitalized her solo career in Europe, and included several hits.

"Always Breaking My Heart", written and produced by Roxette's Per Gessle, also made the UK Top 10, peaking at #8. The album spawned two more UK hits: "Love in the Key of C", and "California".
