Cyndi Lauper is a textbook example of F. Scott Fitzgerald's famous dictum "There are no second acts in American lives." The pixieish singer had a few hits after her late mid-1980s domination of the country's popular imagination, and has continued to release fine, mature pop albums all along. Yet her public image is so frozen in stone as that "unusual" girl who sang "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Time After Time" that many people have never been able to entirely move past the old multicolored- hair/thrift-shop-clothes image. Fully half of SHE'S SO UNUSUAL appears here, along with eight other hits, including the affecting "True Colours" and the yearning, sexy "I Drove All Night," as well as should-have-been hits like the wistful, beautifully sung title track from Lauper's underrated 1991 album HAT FULL OF STARS. The fizzy new wave pop of "Money Changes Everything" and even the slight soundtrack entry "The Goonies R Good Enough" are as charming as ever, but it's the unfairly ignored later material that makes THE ESSENTIAL CYNDI LAUPER truly essential.
Artist Overview
Cyndi Lauper started her recording career in 1980 as the singer for retro-'50s group Blue Angel. In 1983, her first solo album SHE'S SO UNUSUAL made the big-voiced New Yorker a superstar. Her impressive pipes and colorful image should have shot her into the same stratosphere as Madonna, but despite a handful of huge hits, Lauper's career didn't maintain its initial momentum. She continued to release estimable recordings (including a 2003 album showing her knack for standards) and also pursued an acting career, with fine performances in VIBES, THE OPPORTUNISTS, and other films.
