Best Pat Benatar Songs


The Top Ten

1 Heartbreaker

The tune, and the guitar riffs especially sounds like that of Guns 'N Roses' Nightrain from their Appetite for Destruction album. - yoshidinodude64

Definitely needs to be top three

You're the greatest with all my love...Douglas

Really, not in Top 10!

2 Hit Me with Your Best Shot

A great song deserves this spot if not higher. Of course Neil goes off. He always does.

Love the Guitar Solo in this song - mneilan

3 Love is a Battlefield

Just amazing! One of my favorite songs in the world! Anyway, it was a hard choice because she has so many great songs... - Irina2932

Great percussion. Powerful song. Interesting video.

Ooo Baby A Triple

4 Shadows of the Night

This is probably my favorite of her songs, even if she didn't write all of it. DL Byron, a little early 80s New Wave guy wrote original lyrics and melody.

the best

Hel yea girl power

Big song.

5 Invincible

I like Invincible, but it shouldn't be number 1.

This should have been #1! Billie Jean Lives!

6 We Belong

This song is one of the best love songs out there. 12/10

7 Promises In the Dark

Great tension, great build up. This is their best song.

True I say number 1

Promises in the Dark should be top 5. No. It Needs to be top five. It was one of her biggest hits. I love this entire album, ¨Precious Time,¨ but this song is better than Fire and Ice.


8 Fire and Ice

Incredible Vocals

9 Treat Me Right
10 Hell Is for Children

Yes, some of us are old enough or older to remember this song from the album from which it came.

Clearly you people don't know Pat Benatar because this is one her most heartfelt songs ever written. It's actually about child abuse. It is part of her ¨Holy 14.¨ The 14 songs that she plays at every concert. Even though it is not as popular. It is top 5 easy.

The Contenders

11 We Live for Love
12 Looking for a Stranger
13 You Better Run

This is a good cover of The Rascals song.

14 All Fired Up
15 Anxiety (Get Nervous)
16 Little Too Late
17 In the Heat of the Night
18 If You Think You Know How to Love Me
19 Le Bel Age
20 Ooh Ooh Song
21 Sex As a Weapon
22 Lipstick Lies
23 Shadows of the Night

This should be in the Top 10, Very Strong Emotional Song.

24 I'll Do It
25 Run Between the Raindrops
