Lita Ford – Kiss Me Deadly
“Kiss Me Deadly” is the signature song of Lita Ford’s solo career. Although it only pegged at #12, “Close My Eyes Forever” (it got #8) was by Lita and Ozzy Osbourne, so she hardly had the spotlight to herself on that one.
Lita Ford is of course better known as a member of the Runaways, the first all-female rock band. And this puts her alongside the likes of Joan Jett, Suzi Quattro, and Pat Benatar, as female hard-rockers, albeit not quite as empowered as her contemporaries.
This song was written by songwriter Mick Smiley.
