Lisa Likes Rock 'N' Roll

by

Ian Hunter



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

If this uptempo Ian Hunter composition sounds somewhat juvenile, it is for a good reason; "Lisa Likes Rock 'N' Roll" was written for Mick Ronson's three year old daughter, who was in the studio during the recording of the Short Back 'N' Sides album.

According to Ronson's widow in the 2009 revised and updated biography Mick Ronson - The Spider With The Platinum Hair, "Lisa was too little. She had been in there to sing 'here's my daddy' and she was like three".
Ronson played guitar, keyboards and contributed vocals to the session.
The song, which runs to 3 minutes 56 seconds, was released in the UK in 1981 backed by "Noises". (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England, for above 3)

"London Bridge," "Ring Around the Rosie" and "It's Raining, It's Pouring" are just a few examples of shockingly morbid children's songs.

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."

Fishbone has always enjoyed much more acclaim than popularity. Angelo might know why.
