Lisa Lisa just released her first album since 1994’s LL 77.  It’s called Life N Love.  And, she’s been touring non-stop for years.  Now, her shows will include not only the ’80s hits, but this new stuff, too.

San Antonio, you’re in luck (sorry, Austin 😦  ; though, it’s not like we’re miles and miles away) — Lisa Lisa is hitting your town on Thursday, September 6, 2009, at The Industry Nightclub and you have a chance to get on her personal guest list. 

Now, Lisa Lisa’s ’80s Fashion Flare Photo Contest  is open to other cities, too, but air fare is not included in the prize. You’ll have to get your own booty there if you win and don’t live in San Anto.

Check the flyer for the details and click it to go to Lisa Lisa’s Official MySpace Page Blog about the contest.  The contest ends next Tuesday, September 1, 2009, and the winner will be announced the following day, Wednesday, September 2, 2009.



I’ve been wanting to do a countdown featuring songs about songs (you know, songs about music, dancing, and/or a certain genre).  I have my 10 songs, but even as I posted Number 10, I wasn’t sure about the order.  So, this one will form as I go.  I normally have my list ready to go before I start.  MY TOP 10 is a music video countdown, but with some songs (maybe two in  particular) occuring before the MTV era, I will  have to improvise and pull something from Dailymotion or YouTube.  Here goes.

6. Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam “Let the Beat Hit ‘Em”

Before J. Lo there was Lisa Lisa — the first Nuyorican pop diva.  This was one of a long string of Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam freestyle/R&B/dance hits.  This came out some time  after the earlier stuff, but it’s still as potent as anything  from the first album.  The audio play is fun and keeps things moving on the dance floor.  One to keep on replay and sing and dance to over and over.
