Hooray for Lisa Loeb :D !!! I love this lyrical lady, and she's put out consistently good, smart material for a decade now.

Her latest album, "The Way It Really Is", supposedly was mainly inspired by her break-up with Dweezil Zappa.

My personal favorite album of hers is the haunting "Firecracker", which contains "Let's Forget About It", "Wishing Heart", "Dance With the Angels", "This", and "Jake", 5 of my favorite Lisa songs.

Ever since I heard "Stay", I was won over by this intelligent, unique woman and her talent. "Do You Sleep?" is an amazing song.

Personally, "Stay" pigeon-holed Lisa as an overly sweet singer who I enjoyed on radio but whose CD's I wouldn't be inspired to buy (her Lisa Lupner glasses didn't help either). Eventually, I realized that "Stay" isn't at ALL typical of Loeb's work and that she does have much harder-edged tunes as well--"Firecracker" does have some rock on it.

I really don't know any of her music except I love her song, "Falling In Love," which appears on the first Lilith Fair compilation-- "The time between meeting and finally leaving is sometimes called falling in love" -- and Emmylou's background vocals have nothing to do with my liking this version :wink:

She has a show on the E channel that started airing a little while ago, I'm don't know how well it's doing. I've never seen an episode before and yet I’ve seen clips of her in lingerie twice and her dancing around in a thong :shock: :D Seems like an interesting show, she's on VH1 every other week.

I have always been a Lisa fan, but this last CD was probably her worst one to date. New listeners should start with Tails, then Firecracker, then Hello Lisa.

Her show, "#1 Single", is pretty charming. It's on E! every Sunday night.

I am totally into her song "Everyday" lately, for some reason. Yay Lisa! I hope she finds love and sells more records.

a cute little lisa loeb story for y'all. gather 'round campfire style, while i mend my broken voice with warm honey and lemon...

in 1994, lisa did an in-store appearance for my store, which, for those of you who attended pattyfest, was the big fye music store on the corner, second level of the king of prussia plaza. anyway, the crowds that turned out were substantial, a bit larger than we had expected...this was at the height of her popularity as an emerging artist, with the success of stay from the reality bites soundtrack...

the plan was: lisa was supposed to enter my store through the back door, via a service corridor, and then make her grand entrance to the sales floor from my backroom. simple enough.

so, the crowd that had gathered was predominantly teens, teens of the female persuasion, recently freed from middle and high schools scattered throughout merions upper and lower, and suburbs along 422. all sprung up and tense, waiting for their single-of-the-moment to appear, sing, smile, and sign cds and/or cassettes. some of the overly-excitable individuals climbed upon my browsers for a better peek, breaking them with their practically-concealed teen baby phat. *note to self- stop that!*

my staff, a bunch of teens and early twenties like myself, gradually dissipated into the expanding throng, leaving me alone to protect the front of the store from...danger, or something like that. i've always been the responsible one.

anyway, i'm standing a bit outside, looking in, amazed at the multitudes within my store, and i look to my right and see this little thing walking towards me through the mall...carrying a guitar case. which, proportionately speaking, could have been a cello.

it was lisa, of course...she had seen the sign for the store, and thought it was where to go...we had to map out her proper course, and sneak her past a window, all behind the backs of two-hundred eager fans.

it worked, and things went swimmingly.

the end.
step up and bless the mic

I'm 5'2" and I met Lisa at Lilith Fair and she was very petite in comparison to me. I'm thinking like 4'11" or something?

So I met Lisa Loeb today. My friend Katie and I went to see her show at Newbury Comics in Boston. She's very tiny! She's promoting a new CD, "The Purple Tape".

The setlist was --

"Guessing Game" (I think -- I didn't recognize this one right away)
"Do You Sleep?"
"Falling In Love"
"Alone"
"Stay"
"Garden of Delights"
"Everyday"

She asked the audience what they wanted to hear, and I requested "Everyday" because it's my favorite Lisa tune. She went "Oh!" in a happy voice and rocked it out. I was, needless to say, over the moon. She actually spoke to me during the show at one point (I was right up front). She seemed a little tired/distracted/impatient for some reason though -- I'm guessing because she's been and is going everywhere to promote. She probably needs a rest.

Anyway, we took a photo with her and we spoke for a minute. She asked me if I was seeing anyone. It was very cute!

It was a fun day.

How cute! The Purple Tape was a tape that she put out in college that's become quite a collector's item. Look forward to seeing what's in store with the CD.

Agree. Purple Tape is a lovely recording which was available as bootleg for quite a while. She has done a lot of children's songs, but been a while since she came out with a number of new original songs.
