"Vacation," The Go-Gos

Go-Gos
Kerstin Rodgers/Redferns

With a radiant keyboard melody and swirls of surf guitar, the Go-Go's nailed the feeling of trying to use summer vacation to try to get over a crush. It's one of Belinda Carlisle's most heart-tugging performances and its team-waterskiing video is one of greatest MTV clips of all time. "If you look at our eyes, we're all so drunk," Jane Wiedlin said years later. "We didn't even try to make it look like we were really waterskiing."
