In July 1981, Pat Benatar released her third studio album, Precious Time. The album peaked at number one on the United States’ Billboard 200, her only album to do so in any country, and was certified as Double Platinum in sales in the US. Its lead single was the mid-tempo “Fire and Ice” and it became her largest hit to that point in Canada peaking at number 4 on the RPM Singles Chart but only made the Top 30 in Australia and New Zealand. The song won Benatar the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in 1982. - wikipedia

  2. Richly deserved her Hall of Fame placement. Every young girl who loved rock and roll wanted to be her. But her very best song, “Shadows Of The Night” is not on this set.

  10. Rumor has it Derrick had a few comments removed! That proves that bigo has the ability to delete comments….. if they want to.

    But they don’t bother to do delete any of the other garbage hate speech racist porn filth comments that me and my idiot friends post.

    It’s easy, but they don’t bother to do it. Apparently they haven’t figured out that removing a few comments every day will increase the donations they keep asking for.

    It won’t happen quickly, mainly because they allowed the trolls to post here for several years now.

    Do us all a favor, bigo, and clean it up here. Make it a good site to go to again.
