California (1997)


Performed by Belinda Carlisle

One response to “California”

  1. Kirk says:

    I moved to Montreal in 1992. Was a fan of Belinda Carlisle’s from the beginning of her career w/ The Go Gos’. Then of course her solo albums. But after her 3rd solo album (‘Runaway Horses’) I kind of lost track of her career and never paid much attention to her later releases. Then the beginning of this year I became aware that all of her solo albums were being re released/ remastered in deluxe volumes via a company in the UK (Demon Music Group/ Edsel). SADLY, I found that the albums were only being released in the UK/Europe and not here in North America. I spent a small fortune getting all of the remastered deluxe editions via AMAZON UK. I am rediscovering Belinda’s music all over again, AND discovering her 3 albums that I never listened to before ‘ A WOMAN AND A MAN’ being one of them. This album has become my newest music album ADDICTION. I listen to it every single day, and especially LOVE (!!!!!!!) the track “California” (the video is equally impressive). Billy Steinberg, I am well aware of your extensive musical resume and your astonishing musical gift that you have happily shared with us all..I LOVE YA, DUDE !!!! XX Kirk..in Montreal.

I remember I was in the tanning salon
When I heard that River Phoenix was gone
They say that only the good die young
But that ain’t true where I come from

It took a lot for me to say
I want to walk away, L.A.
From the sharks and the chardonnay
In California...In California

4 in the morning, we were in our beds
The swaying palm trees above our heads
Woke up to a primal, rumbling sound
When the Northridge quake ripped open the ground


Golden State
I’m back in the Golden State
The golden state of mind
