Never having been a fan of Country or Western music, I’m Not Lisa was, to my mind at least, a crossover song. It made it to the pop charts. The song made it to #1 on the Billboard Country charts, and an amazing #4 on the Billboard Hot charts.
The song is a perfect piece for a writer. It is strong, moody, deep, sad, and beautiful. Typically I go for the original recording, but I found one where she plays the piano and sings “live”, and couldn’t resist.
Ladies and gentlemen, “I’m Not Lisa” by the lovely Jessie Colter.
