"It seems as if it was only yesterday. Lorraine Lewis hit the big time, and just as soon as she came, she was gone forever. Oh those 80's. Those crazy, wild, here today gone later today bands of the most decadent decade in American history. How I miss this days. At least I still have the music from that era. That's the only thing from keeping me from killing myself it seems. That and my Vans checkerboard shoes.
Femme Fatale had only one album, but at least they made the most of it. Here is a breakdown of the album that I bought back in 1988 and still listen to. I listened to it yesterday in fact delivering pizzas.
1. Waiting for the Big One - It's a hell of an opener. Lorraine tells you right away what she's all about and that she'll never settle for second best. She doesn't want just 'anyone'. No no buddy. Lorraine is waiting for the BIG ONE!
2. Falling in and Out of Love - The album keeps up the momentum with this tune. Of course it's more about sex than love, but hey, it was the 80's!
3. My Baby's Gun - Lorraine is only into her third song on the album and by now most teenage boys are going crazy. This is probably Lorraine at her sexiest.
4. Back in Your Arms Again - What I love about this song is the chorus. It's very catchy. To me this is the most memorable song on the album.
5. Rebel - The ballad. It was the 80's and a ballad was mandatory. This is a pretty good, run of the mill, average 80's ballad.
6. Fortune and Fame - This is what Lorraine should have had with her next album, unfortunately it was never made. This song makes you wonder 'what if'. If Femme Fatale did one or two more albums, I think they would have reached the same level of fame as RATT.
7. Touch and Go - Good beat on this one. This is basiclly a sexy bump and grind song. Great tune to drive to with your girl riding shotgun.
8. If - To answer your question, no. You were wondering if this was a cover song from the band Bread right? Not even close. This song has an awesome guitar solo and Looraine sounds fresh. I always thought that she sang this is the morning for some reason. She just sounds so wide awake and cheery.
9. Heat the Fire - Don't think Lorraine and Company are gonna let this album fizzle out toward the end. This song sets you up for the earthshattering closer. More sexual innuendoes to be found here on this song, but isn't that why we became Femme Fatale fans in the first place?
10. Cradle's Rockin' - YEAH!!! Killer ending tune to a GREAT album. If you think the 80's were just Vixen and Lita Ford, you are mistaken. Lorraine Lewis and Femme Fatale were right in there too. They didn't get the recognition they should have, but this album rocks and it will live on forever. Even after You and I are both dead.
Lorraine Lewis Forever!!!!
