3AM Eternal: The Go-Go’s “Turn To You” (1984)

turn to you

 

The upbeat “Turn To You,” the second single taken from The Go-Go’s  sophomore album, Talk Show, was bittersweet; it was a more mature, grown-up, sophisticated style, yet, sadly, it would prove to be the band’s last successful Top 40 hit, peaking at 32. Though the band would split up not long after the album’s release, it was by no means the end for Belinda Carlisle, and, if anything, this number sounds like a foreshadowing of her burgeoning solo career. Still, if you’re gonna call it quits, it’s best to do so with your best face forward, and that’s exactly what “Turn To You” is–a great farewell number.
