Remember Cyndi Lauper? I first remember her from the movie Goonies. Yeah, that sweet theme song…LOL. And Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. She was a unique bird back then, wasn’t she?

Oh, but she can sing.

Cindy Lauper 1980Remember the long red hair?

The colorful eye make-up

She had a unique way of dancing, didn’t she?

Cyndi Lauper 2009Then when she showed up

on American Idol last week

I saw she can still sting,

and she looks great!

Boy oh how she’s changed.

What’s your favorite Cyndi Lauper song?

I’d have to say mine is “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

  1. She’s one of my favorite Canadian rockers. To me her prettiest song is “Time After Time.”

    Alison–Oh yeah. TIME after TIME. Love that song. Last weekend VH1 Classic played the 80s from A to Z, that was one they played. She’s awesome.

  3. Tracy says:

    Love Cyndi Lauper! I always thought she had a MUCH better voice than Madonna. Though I love both of the above songs, my favorite CL song would have to be True Colors. Love it!

  4. Billy Coffey says:

    True Colors, hands down. I used to have the biggest crush on Cyndi Lauper…

  5. That is so funny. I just put up her video for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun….Man I love the 80’s.
