Subject: Cyndi Lauper Singles Poll

Written By: xSiouXBoIx on 11/25/07 at 12:15 pm

There were other singles, but they were either promo singles, or they charted really low, or didn't chart at all.

I like 'Money Changes Everything' the best, which was the least sucessful song off She's So Unusual.

'All Through The Night' would be my other choice. It reached #5, but I never hear it on the radio. I really don't understand how songs that were so sucessful get ignored by classic rock stations...they play her other hits  ::).

I do like most of her sounds but True Colours stands out the most.

My favourite is still 'The Goonies R Good Enough'.  When I was a kid, I loved both that song and the movie, and still love both :)



'Money Changes Everything' ... which was the least sucessful song off She's So Unusual.


Actually, the least successful from that album was 'When You Were Mine' ...

I love them all, but "Money Changes Everything" tops my list.  When I first heard those notes she hits and how long she holds them, I was blown away.

I always liked Cyndi Lauper.  She can sing way better than Madonna, and that's real talk.  Don't get me wrong.  I like Madonna, but Cyndi had the voice.  I like "Time After Time", "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", "True Colors", and "All Through The Night".

"True Colors", "Time After Time", and "I Drove All Night" are my favorites.

"True Colors" tops my list.  Other favourites include "Change Of Heart" and "Ballad Of Cleo & Joe".

I like True Colors, but my favorite is the acoustic version of Time after Time,there's just something about it.

Subject: Re: Cyndi Lauper Singles Poll

Written By: warped on 01/27/13 at 7:19 pm

"Time after Time" or "Money Changes everything" or "She Bop". I also like "All through the night"

Her "She's so unusual" album was one of the best of the 80s. One of the best album of the 80s after 1981 for me. I also has a mega crush on her.

Had to go with The Goonies. Loved that song and loved the movie when I was a kid. In fact I still have the first Saturday Night Main Event on DVD where they played the entire video (If you'll remember that video was full of famous wrestlers) I still pop that in a watch it. It's so funny because after it's played Roddy Piper comes out and argues that the only reason he was in the video was because Steven Spielburg called and asked him personally.  He was supposedly not a fan of Cindy's (She was a "manager" at the time! LOL The 80's were great!!

Didn't I answer this one five years ago?

Anyway, "Time After Time" for me!

I love the video too.  The whole thing's kinda soppy, but I'm a sucker for sentiment!

Yes, I remember that Goonies 'R' Good Enough video with the old school circa 1985 wrestlers (I think it was Roddy Piper, Nikolai Volkoff, 'Classie' Freddie Blassie and The Iron Shiek). As for Piper's Steven Spielberg story, it could possibly be true or it could be a way for Roddy Piper to stay in character while taking part in Cyndi Lauper's video at the same time ('kayfabe' was important back then and possibly even more so promoting the first Wrestlemania).

As with a lot of fan favourite tracks, Lauper didn't like the song and refused to play it live after 1986, she has since put it back into her repertoire due to fan recognition (credit to Wikipedia for this little piece of info).

I have mixed feelings about this video. It features three of the things I like - Cyndi Lauper, old school wrestling and The Goonies. However, it just doesn't feel right putting the lot together and promoting it all without it looking ridiculous because the things Lauper is promoting have absolutely nothing in common with each other. I love lasagna, cheesecake and strawberry milkshake but I wouldn't stick them in a blender and eat them as a smoothie.

I went for Goonies 'R' Good Enough but I would have really been stuck if 'I Don't Want to be your Friend' was on that list too. A great track from 1989.

I'll go with All Through the Night because I find the melody to be very space aged an haunting.

The whole cross-promotion of Spielberg, wrestling, and Cyndi was all discombobulated and schizophrenic.  I think that's what I liked about it.  Last year when Mitt Romney had his cookie incident, my memory spun out Rowdy Roddy Piper as a premonition of Mitt's social comportment!  Even better, in the video Roddy is there to evict them all...and you had the oil sheik!

I'm surprised to see that Girls Just Wanna Have Fun wasn't a #1 single!

I love most of these singles so it's really hard to choose...

For me, it would have to be a 3 way tie between All Through The Night, Change of Heart, and Time After Time

I ticked Time after time, for I've loved this song through the time.

As the clueless chap that I am I thought it was from Tracy Chapman, so in the end I learnt Lauper held the letters in her head.

I need a lot of pop culture..I guess  ::)
