"Love is a Battlefield" was a single from Pat Benatar's album Live From Earth, which was popular in 1983. The single has been certified gold and is her most successful single in Americas, as it topped Billboard's Mainstream Rock Chart and made the Top Five of the Billboard Hot 100. The single is among one of Pat Benatar's best known songs. The video was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video, and was viewable on the DVD for the movie 13 Going on 30. The single was unlike most of Pat Benatar's previous work, as it featured an electronic dance element, but guitars and drums were still present. The song won Pat Benatar a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
And so it was with Pat Benatar's “Love Is a Battlefield,” one of the two new studio tracks that Benatar and her cohorts recorded for the Live From Earth album in 1983.
‘Battlefield’ also had a dark thing going on that was really interesting, so I thought, ‘I think I should give this a shot because I think I can do something interesting with it.’ I felt the essence of the song was there; I just needed to figure out how to pull it out.
Then it hit me when I made the ‘mistake’ that it would be a great groove for ‘Battlefield.’ Then I was playing that 6-bar beat, letting it flip around all over the place, and I started adding the keyboards and guitars and building the song from there.
The original Battlefield 1942, from 2002, became tremendously popular thanks to its combination of fast action and World War II vehicles, and the series saw an improvement in its gameplay with this year's follow-up, Battlefield Vietnam, which is set during the controversial Vietnam War of the 1960s.
The upcoming sequel, Battlefield 2, will be staged in a modern conflict in both the Middle East and China.
Battlefield 2142 is set in a post ice age future, where great battles take place for control over the remaining land.
