  • “Get Nervous” is Pat Benatar at her best. While her first two albums always get more attention from critics and fans, this album is often overlooked for its quality and timelessness. This album was made after she got married to her long time guitarist Neil. And it shows the energy they picked up from each other after making a personal commitment to each other. They made this album more for themselves instead for the public. I think every track is exceptional, and it is hard to pick my five favorites off of “Get Nervous”. But I will hit it with my best shot. Sorry, I know bad joke. My five favorites off of “Get Nervous are as follows: 1)”I’ll Do It”. This song starts with a bang and doesn’t let up. The combination of drums with bass and keyboards is incredible, and Pat’s singing is at her best. A song way before it’s time. 2)”Fight It Out”. An intense song lyrically and musically. The song starts with a pretty piano piece and a wicked guitar lick and builds to one of the prettiest and most powerful choruses’ I have heard. This song also shows Pats great vocal control. She hits so many ranges so effortlessly, you lose count. 3)”Tell It To Her”. A song about confronting a lover with knowledge of secret affairs, with lyrics and music that expertly play up the hurt feelings of betrayal being conveyed by Pat. 4)”I Want Out”. Another song to express revenge on a lover who hurt once too often. I love it. 5)”Shadows of the Night”. The big hit off the album still sounds as good as it did when it came out. Pat has always amazed me at her expert songwriting. While the music rocks all around her, she is singing about intense issues like child abuse and spousal abuse and adultry. And also her husband Neil knew that Pat’s strength was her voice and decided not to smother it with music. They not only made a great marriage for themselves they also made a great marriage with talent in this album for their fans.
