Ever since Cyndi Lauper first burst onto the scene, from this, her record-breaking 1983 debut album, to her Grammy and Tony Award-winning Broadway play "Kinky boots", her continuous work as a LGBT rights activist, as well as her current stint as a special guest on Cher's Dressed To Kill Tour, she has kept singing and dancing, with her unruly energy and nutty outfits, remaining just as strong today as she did back then. The 10 original songs on here are already familiar to those who have enjoyed them the first time around, but for new listeners who are familiar only with the hit singles, each of the songs are enjoyable in their own way. Here lies the enduring strength of this bright set of colorful numbers fusing pop, new wave, post-punk, reggae, and funk. Accompanied by Lauper's unique appearance and distinctive thin, girly voice, it helped popularize the image of punk and new wave for America and the rest of the world, influencing artists and listeners alike, and marking a whole new era for the pop landscape.

This groundbreaking album produced 4 Top 5 hits (a record for a woman at the time), earned Cyndi 2 Grammys, and went multi-platinum in many countries. To celebrate this iconic debut, this fantabulous 2-disc anniversay edition presents new remixes, live tracks, early demos and studio outtakes, and a 20-page booklet with previously unseen photos, and a brand new essay from the co-author of Cyndi's autobiography. And, to top it all off, the show-stealer is a re-usable sticker set, with vinyl cut outs of Cyndi's outfits and accessories that can be arranged on a 3D fold-out backdrop of the bedroom featured in her "Girls just wanna have fun" video!

First bought this album cd - circa 1989.some sort of a cd re-issues I seemed to remember.
Now it has received the deluxe re-vamp all these years later,I love it even more this time around.
Cyndi lauper is on fire; her rebellious girls just wanna have fun,is her reposte to overbearing,over-protective and condescending parents.
All the other tracks including money changes everything and time after time are outstanding.A truly wonderful debut album and with full essay, 'lobby cards' and bonus disc of out-takes,an excellent re-issue.
NB :The only downside I can find,is the omission of any lyrics..But you can't have everything I suppose.

Some album !!! Reminds me of them "good ol' days", my childhood, long hot Summers, when shoulders were big, colours were loud and hair was bigger .. Cyndi would be known for 'Girls just wanna have fun', but there is so much more to her than that. The beautiful 'Time after Time' is here too as is She Bop but for me the highlight is a cover of Prince's 'when you were mine', a driving beat and tempo I imagine it to been played loud in many a roller disco back in them 1980's. Cyndi will not thank thank me for saying this, but she remninds me of the fun, of the colour of the days when MTV played music and when we were smart and our phones were dumb.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS FOR 'SHE'S SO UNUSUAL' ONLY:

Cyndi Lauper's debut album.

When she first stormed onto 'Top Of The Pops' with the fabulously catchy 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun', I guess we all knew she was already here to stay!

Cyndi has a tremendous voice that can attach itself to both emotional ballads as well as her catchy pop numbers. Bearing in mind that Cyndi was no 'chicken' when she made it big, it is ever a credit to her that she appealed to the audiences she did at the time in her early days. Now, she is a well-respected and much acclaimed Singer with tremendous versatility.

Here in her debut album you will acquire her two major hits from 1984 and a collection of seven other great and well-sung numbers!

Great stuff!

I distinctly remember, at the tender age of 12, receiving as a gift the vinyl version of She's So Unusual in 1984. Cyndi Lauper was all the rage then; her garish, multicoloured costumes in her frequently aired videos made her one of the more popular female artists in 1984 (possible even more popular than Madonna in that year). Many years after last listening to that vinyl record, I became reaquainted with She's So Unusual on this CD. The music is as dynamic and fresh today as it was back in 1984. I'm sure most people are familiar with the gimicky Girls Just Want to Have Fun, but the rest of the tracks are just as wonderful in their own way. From the beautifully sad ballad Time After Time to the bouncy She Bop, this album is a wonderful showcase for Cyndi Lauper (who unfortunately has never been able to duplicate this first success), and for 80's pop in general. Also included are live versions of Money Changes Everything, She Bop and All Through The Night - excellent additions for the serious fan.
Buy it...and step back in time to a wonderful era in music....
