I’m Gonna Follow You – Pat Benatar (1980) 192k/24 FLAC HD 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“I’m Gonna Follow You” was released on Pat Benatar’s second studio album, Crimes of Passion, on August 5, 1980 by Chrysalis Records.

I tried to do something to brighten up the old promo video, but it was very dark and when you add in the low resolution that I was working with, it was difficult to light it up much. Anyway, this is mainly all about the ability to offer a 24bit / 192kHz FLAC audio source of the track to a video. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks to all my friends for their continued support!

The album is the first to feature Myron Grombacher on drums, beginning a long tenure in Benatar’s band that would last into the late-1990s.

The album debuted on the US Billboard 200 album chart the week ending August 23 and held at No. 2 for five weeks in the US in January 1981, behind John Lennon’s Double Fantasy. It contains the hits “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” (US No. 9), “You Better Run” (US No. 42), “Treat Me Right” (US No. 18), plus a cover of Kate Bush’s international hit, “Wuthering Heights”.

Crimes of Passion is Benatar’s biggest selling career album, having been certified 4x Platinum (for sales of over four million copies) in the United States alone.

The song “Hell Is for Children”, which was not released as an A-side single, was also a hit on album-rock stations. A live version of this song from her album Live from Earth (1983) was released as the B-side of her “Love Is a Battlefield” single three years later. The song was featured in the 1981 animated film American Pop, as well as on the soundtrack.

In 1981, Benatar won her first Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance thanks to Crimes of Passion.

The music video for the song “You Better Run” was the second music video ever aired on MTV in 1981.

Crimes of Passion was reissued and remastered on Capitol Records in 2006.

[Lyrics]
I’m gonna follow you, ’til I wear you down
I’m gonna follow you, ’cause this here’s my town
You don’t know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can’t turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)
Ooo, ooo…

I’m gonna follow you, ’til I know your timing
You’ll turn some corner soon, and find you can’t get by me
You don’t know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can’t turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)

You see yourself as some kind of lily of the valley
You come around here in your ballet slippers padding on my alley
And you know that you can’t dance
‘Cause you know you never had the chance
I’m gonna dance for you!

Ooo, ooo…

I’m gonna follow you, ’til I wear you down
I’m gonna follow you, ’cause this here’s my town
You don’t know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can’t turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)

You see yourself as some kind of lily of the valley
You come around here in your ballet slippers padding on my alley
And you know that you can’t dance
‘Cause you know you never had the chance
I’m gonna dance for you!

Ooo, ooo…
