"I"m a bit transgressive and suppressive as well," sings Lisa Marie Presley on "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," shouting out an identity crisis her third LP fully owns. The daughter of Elvis and ex-wife of Michael never jelled as a pop-rock diva (see her 2005 duet with Pink, "Shine"). Here, producer T Bone Burnett switches on his semiacoustic roots-rock way-back machine, which highlights her appealingly husky voice on the hip-swiveling "Over Me" and the Latin- scented "Weary," but generates few sparks. Splitting the difference between hooky modern tunecraft and old-school hush, "Un-Break" is a high point, a track fans of Pink and her papa might all get behind.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
