Biography

Lisa Lisa (born Lisa Velez on January 15, 1967) and her band Cult Jam were one of the original American freestyle groups of the 1980s. The two other members of Cult Jam were guitarist/bassist Alex Moseley and drummer/keyboardist Mike Hughes. They were assembled and produced by Full Force.

The group released their debut album, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam with Full Force in 1985, it went platinum[1]. The Personal Records label leased “I Wonder if I Take You Home” to the European division of CBS Records for the compilation album Breakdancing. Stateside club DJs began playing the single from the import LP. The U.S. division of CBS, Columbia Records, released the record with it quickly becoming a chart-topper on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Disco chart. The single went gold, crossing over to the R&B chart, peaking at number six, and the pop chart at number 34 in summer 1985. I Wonder If I Take You Home was followed by the club hit “Can You Feel the Beat,” and they soon found their first Top 10 single, the ballad “All Cried Out”. “Can You Feel the Beat” made it to number 40 R&B in late 1985. Their third single, the ballad “All Cried Out” went gold, going to number three R&B, number eight pop in summer 1986. “All Cried Out” was later covered by Allure and was a hit in 1998.

    omg...lisa lisa & cult jam. the soundtrack of my adolescence, indeed. janet jackson had jimmy jam & terry lewis & lisa lisa had cult jam & full force. both teams produced top notch late 80s r&b/pop/dance jams. i miss this music! i wonder if i take you home was my theme song before i even knew what the lyrics meant. but head to toe...i definitely knew & felt a first crush to that jam in spring '87.

    Last shout for tonight: I have my own copy of Head To Toe. Yes, I have the original. Thank goodness for mp3 or none of us would have our old music again. I heard this stuff back in the 80s and 90s and it still sounds good today. Sad, they take it off the shelves an leave it to radio edits and replays. Glad to own my iPod and my mp3 player.

    last.fm is looking for a information on Living In The '90s. For those fans of the album, it's a collection of 90's hits on two CDs. It was a special 2 CD set put out by Razer and Tie. If you get a chance, check it out and see if you like the songs.
