28 May 2021 - Belinda Carlisle - Lay Down Your Arms

This song was originated by The Graces, a band led by former (and current) Go-Go's guitarist Charlotte Caffey, in 1988.

So, I guess it isn't that surprising that her friend and fellow Go-Go Belinda Carlisle would cover the song in 1993.  What is surprising is that it was more successful than the original, despite the original getting an awful lot of MTV airplay.

The song appears on Carlisle's 5th album, Real, which is full of songs co-written by Charlotte Caffey, so it's fair to say she was probably on board.
