If you've never done a lisp, then go for Clojure for sure. It's refreshingly fun and different, plus you can read my totally helpful post to get started

 

I second that, it's radically different from most languages so if you're not familiar with LISP-y languages already then it could enlightening to work through the "wizard book".

Oh the SICP book, brings back memories of reading Paul Graham's essays on Lisp and Arc

 

Ah ah thanks I read it, and it helped. I studied Common Lisp a bit many years ago (using SBCL) but I don't remember much.
