Soulful Saturday- Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam

Remember when videos would tell a story, and not just feature some hootches grinding on an ugly rapper who is throwing money in the air?? I do, and let me tell you- Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam did it better than most!! These videos are the epitome of 80s grandeur. OMG, the fashion, the synthesizers, the... tackiness of mesh shirts and bangs over the eyes. I.LOVE.IT!!
Other than the God awful dancing, the huge earrings and the jheri curls, the fact remains that Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam recorded some of the best, most remembered music of the 80s. If you grew up within 15 miles of my parents house, you knew their music because I BLASTED it, especially my very favorite song (All Cried Out). I am amazed (and not in a good way) that 80s fashions are coming back in style. Please, let's leave the big hair, mullets, shoulder pads and spandex to passed times (please)... but the music can make a comeback. That, I would love. Here's to a fantastic flashback! :)

Lost In Emotion
* that is some set of teeth @ 1:04

I wonder if I take you Home
*Love that interracial love is highlighted in this video!!
*Does the chick @2:15 have her hair fashioned into a unicorn horn? That is NOT allowed!!
*Will you still love me, if I take you home?

Head To Toe

All Cried Out
* Amazingly beautiful
* WHO is that gorgeous man with the Fabio hair in this video? Where can I find him? :)

Extra- All Cried Out was remade in the late 90s by a group named Allure and 112. I actually like this version too! They sound really good together...

And just in case you wanted to know what Lisa Lisa looks like now-a-days... eat your hearts out, she still looks great!!
