BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1980
“Hit Me with Your Best Shot” is a song written by Canadian singer/songwriter Eddie Schwartz, and recorded by American singer Pat Benatar in 1980. In 1980, it was released as the second single from her second album Crimes of Passion. It hit #7 in Cash Box, and reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her first Top 10 hit.
“Hit Me with Your Best Shot” sold well over a million copies in the US, achieving a gold certification by the RIAA. The song is one of Benatar’s most recognizable.
**The 7″ single contains a slightly remixed version with more prominent guitar not heard on the album release. This has not appeared on CD as far as I know.
