Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on Rewriting “Love is a Battlefield”

At the 2016 ASCAP Expo, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo gave a candid interview and talked about the songwriting process. In this clip, they explain how the smash hit “Love is a Battlefield” began as a ballad with a beautiful melody and moving chord changes. After some exploration with drum machines and the band, the arrangement and production we know today came to life. Check out the clip above for that story and watch the clip below for an impromptu performance of “We Belong” showing that Pat and Neil still got what it takes to rock!
