LITA FORD – LITA

Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Hope you’re having a great week so far. Today we  take a trip back to 1988 to the self titled- album by a woman who always rocks as hard as the boys, “Lita.”

The album became one of Lita’s most successful albums and produced the hit singles “Kiss Me Deadly” and “Close My Eyes Forever”, her duet with Ozzy Osbourne. Produced by Mike Chapman (Blondie, The Knack), the track listing is as follows:

  • Back to the Cave
  • Can’t Catch Me
  • Blueberry
  • Kiss Me Deadly
  • Falling in and Out of Love
  • Fatal Passion
  • Under the Gun
  • Broken Dreams
  • Close My Eyes Forever

“Can’t Catch Me” was co-written with Lemmy Kilmister and keyboardist, David Erzin, while “Falling In And Out Of Love” was co-written with Nikki Sixx. “Close My Eyes Forever” is Lita’s most successful song to date reaching #8 on the Billboard Top 100.

Lita went on hiatus for many years to tend to her family with former Nitro singer, Jim Gillette. She released her comeback album, “Wicked Wonderland” in 2009, her collaborative effort with Gillette. In 2011, Lita went back to her roots for her next album, “Living Like a Runaway”, which reflected on her split with Gillette, her children and her truce with her former Runaways bandmates. She followed up in 2016 with her next album “Time Capsule” which was a compilation of recordings she had done in the 80’s with a few notable musicians including Gene Simmons, Bruce Kulick and Dave Navarro to name a few.
