Any blog written about the Bangles cannot go around singer Susanna Hoffs. Although she was way older than me in 1989, to say she tickled my fancy is an understatement. She’s now 63 and still beautiful. Eternal flame is about the eternal flame on the grave of Elvis in Graceland. It was not burning when the band visited the place. So far for eternal.
The song was written by Hoffs herself, and is a bit different than the usual repertoire of the Bangles. It is way more sweet, less uptempo. But it is their biggest hit. Did I already tell that Hoffs sang the song naked?
