She Bop

Of all the concerts I've seen in my life seeing Cyndi Lauper last Autumn was easily one of the highlights, it was one of those perfect concerts. David has a wonderful review of seeing her in Birmingham here. That's what I love about my fellow pop bloggers is that they are still so passionate about the pop I grew up with. Here's a post I did on Cyndi previously which includes her version of Strawberry Field Forever.
The songs below are ten Cyndi songs I adore:
  • Who Let In The Rain
  • Sally's Pigeons
  • Heading West
  • Time After Time
  • The World Is Stone
  • Change Of Heart
  • True Colors
  • When You Were Mine
  • Into The Nightlife
and of course She Bop. This is a classic example of a pop song having controversial lyrics but at the same time not being blatantly obvious. The songwriters of today could learn a lot from artists like Cyndi. Mind you five people including Cyndi wrote the song. The video for that song is here;
This is song number 31 of my 40. Here's Cyndi on the US music show Solid Gold and a classic performance of She bop.
