OED definition

HYPHEN; Used to join or divide words.

So when used in Go - Go it is to divide TWO individual words. In this case the word GO is used twice, Go - Go is not one word.

So my addition Go For It does follow the previous post Go - Go Boots

The hyphen ‐ is a punctuation mark used to join words and to separate syllables of a single word

For the duration of this game hyphenated words have been taken as the highlighted definition (ie a single word). The song title you followed is not Go - Go as you posted above (with a gap between go and the hyphen, and another between the hyphen and the second go) but Go-Go, no gaps, clearly meant as one word.

To be fair this is an issue that has cropped up at least twice before as I recall and we have always worked on the basis that hyphens count as one word so rightly or wrongly VB ‘s point is consistent with what has always been agreed in the past.
