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)
