Belinda Jo Carlisle is a Grammy Award–nominated American singer. After beginning her career as a drummer or backup singer for some Los Angeles music groups, she achieved international recognition in the early 80s as lead singer of the new wave group The Go-Go's. The Go-Go's made history as the first all-woman band that both entirely wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts.

In 1985 the group disbanded and Carlisle started a successful solo career. Her first solo single, "Mad About You" (1986), reached the top three in the U.S. and topped the Canadian chart.

“Summer Rain"

Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can hear him saying
Nothing will change
Come dancing with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain on our skin
And his kisses hotter than the
Santa Ana winds
Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain

I remember laughing til we almost cried
(There at station that night)
I remember looking in his eyes

Oh my love, it's you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Doesn't matter what I do now
Doesn't matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

I can hear the whistle
Military train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can here him singing
Ooh "Love Is Strange"
Come dance with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain pouring down
And we poured our hearts out
As the train pulled out
I can see my baby
Waving from the train
It was last time that I saw him
In the summer rain

Every time I see the lightening
Every time I hear the thunder
Every time I close the window
When this happens in the summer
Oh the night is so inviting
I can feel that you are so close
I can feel you when the wind blows
Blows right through my heart

Every night and every day now
Though I know you've gone away
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain”
Belinda Carlisle
