"Head over Heels" is a 1984 single, released by the all-female pop rock/new wave band The Go-Go's, written by Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine. Go-Gos' rhythm guitarist Jane Wiedlin has cited "Head over Heels" as her favorite Go-Gos' song, describing it as "just a classic. Like a little pop truffle of chocolate that's just completely delicious."[1]
