Kiss Me Deadly – Lita Ford

“It aint no big thing…” Cue the penis size jokes.

This whole video is an adolescent boy’s dream. Lita is a sex goddess in a boob tube held up by magic. She’s lap dancing to a guitar and she’s singing into the wind, her crown of huge blonde hair blowing perfectly into the breeze.

Women were fairly scarce in 80s heavy metal but Lita Ford is a glowing exception. After the demise the all-female band The Runaways in 1979, Lita launched her solo career. She reached a peak in 1988 when, managed by Sharon Osbourne, she produced the album Lita. Kiss Me Deadly did well on the charts (#40 in the US) and helped propel the album to platinum sales.

Kiss Me Deadly was named the 76th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.

Lita Ford is married to Jim Gillette of Nitro.
