    Holy crap! I didn't even know this was coming!
    [c][​IMG][/c]

    I mean, it's been not quite a year (10/2/02) since "Pat Benatar: Best Shots" was cancelled at the last minute before street date to "do something else instead".

    Obviously, THIS is the "something else"! [​IMG]

    Let's see what we've got here:

      Description: This collection gathers together all of Pat Benatar's hit videos for the first time on one DVD. After exploding onto the music scene in the 80's, thanks in part due to some heavy rotation on MTV, Pat Benatar's musical legacy still endures, thanks to her timeless melodies, and stunning vocal performances. This collection includes 29 tracks, including "Sex As A Weapon," "Shadows of the Night," "We Belong," "Love is a Battlefield," and many more.


    Shoot, I'm all over this like Anna Nicole Smith on a honey bun dropped in the dust! It even includes "Invincible" from The Legend of Billie Jean? YES! [​IMG]


    Friggin' A, bubba! Thanks for the heads-up! I'm there. MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE!!!!!!!

    I expect this to be 1 of those dvds, that will take a few weeks to find at stores.

    Tony, I don't know about any other location, but my local Circuit City almost always has new music DVDs day-and-date. Seriously. And at very decent prices, too!

    Mine is pretty good too on music releases, but lets not forget this is an 80s style release . At my circuit city if its todays music artists dvds, they get it right away, but for 80s music dvds they take a couple weeks. Usually my local suncoast is pretty reliable on releases such as this, so hopefully i can get it there.

    So that's why I've been seeing all those Pat Benatar: Best Shots lasers on Ebay! Wished I knew it in time so I could have been one of them, before they lost all value.

    Just curious--did she not do a music video for "Hit Me With Your Best Shot"? I mean, it's IMHO the one song I associate her with...not that she hasn't sang other great titles, but "Hit Me..." is IMHO the most widely-known of all her songs...

    Tony, I don't think so. If there is a video it probably was taken from one of her live performances. This collection is so mine.

    In fact,there was a music video for hit me with your best shot. I remember back in the early 80s, mtv played the video for it very often. I find it very odd for that video, too be missing from the dvd, its like duran duran releasing their greatest hits dvd without the reflex ! Maybe best shots will be an easter egg on the dvd.[​IMG]

    Tony, I can't say that I recall ever seeing a video for Hit Me With Your Best Shot. I recorded a LOT of MTV videos to tape, and made a list of which videos were on what tape. I will try to locate that handwritten list, and see if I marked such a video down on it. I undoubtedly would have recorded ANY Pat video that I could!


    The good news is that I saw Choice Cuts at both Suncoast and Borders. Each store sells it for $24.99; I had a Borders 20% off coupon with me from the Waldenbooks newsletter, so my final price was $19.99 on it.

    I can tell you that neither Circuit City nor Best Buy will be carrying Pat Benatar in-stores, though, unfortunately for those who live closer to one of these.


    Awesome disc! The 5.1 remix track is a bit forced, especially on the bonus live videos, so I dropped back to 2.0 and enjoyed the hell out of myself. The first music video, "You Better Run", is not in great shape. But don't let that turn you off from the rest...all the others were in terrific shape and held up well on my larger HDTV set!

    "Shadows of the Night", "Invincible", "Promises in the Dark", "Sex as a Weapon", and "Little Too Late" are all especially enjoyable in my opinion. Those are my favorite Pat videos, and they are excellently represented here! [​IMG]

    AW, thanks David, you made my day ! Usually when 1 suncoast or borders carries it they all have it. Now im just hoping there not sold out, but i guess if they are, suncoast usually can do a special order for me. Ill also try borders, since i still have some coupons left.[​IMG]

    That "Promises in the Dark" video (if it's the original one from MYV back in the day...) is not actually a live track. They are lip-synching to the album track. Watch when Neil Geraldo does the "1,2,3,4.." count at the end...

    PitD is indeed the MTV-played "almost live" ( [​IMG] ) performance music video from long ago. I love that vidoe. Great song, and she still gets me with that skin-tight outfit! :b

    Kinda off topic, but has any one picked up her latest CD yet entitled "GO"...it is simply wonderful and brings Pat back in true form with up tempo rockers and wonderful ballads.

    Pat is a truly underrated artist.

    Have yet to find anyone around here yet selling the DVD...hopefully I will by this weekend...
