I was going to buy Cyndi's 'Twelve Deadly Cyns' but this is even better- this has that fantastic title track from the Goonies!! Other classics are the beautiful 'Time After Time' from 'Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion' and the inspirational 'True Colors'. This album evokes a lot of memories: a perfect mix of ballads and pop, Cyndi Lauper is something of a legend!!

After one unsuccessful album, Cyndi recorded three albums in the eighties (She's so unusual, True colors, A night to remember) that gave her plenty of success and it is from these three albums that this compilation is mainly assembled. Some of her later albums, though less successful, are well worth hearing but it is the eighties that most people associate with Cyndi.
So, this compilation includes all of Cyndi's important hits of the eighties including Girls just want to have fun, Time after time (later covered by Eva Cassady among others), She bop, All through the night, True colors, Change of heart (with the Bangles on backing vocals), What's going on (a cover of a Marvin Gaye classic) and I drove all night (which also became a top ten UK hit for Roy Orbison).
If you just want one collection of Cyndi's music, this has all the essential eighties tracks.

'Cyndi' was born 'Cynthia Ann Stephanie Lauper' in 'Queens' New York in 1953.
She grew up listening to artists such as 'The Beatles' 'Ella Fitzgerald' 'Judy Garland' and 'Billie Holiday' and actually started
writing her own songs from the age of just 12.
From quite a young age she seemed to be very different a little eccentric perhaps with her dress-sense and constant hair colour
changes, an image in fact we remember her for as she became a successful recording artist, her first International-Hit perhaps
typifying her image - 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' (Chart '2' U.K 1983) soon followed the same year with the Pop-Classic number
'Time After Time' (Chart '3') though having a few lower-order entries in between she didn't return to the U.K Top 20 until 1986 with
'True Colours' (Chart '12' U.K) which was also a hit for 'Phil Collins' - again a couple of years with only minor hits in the U.K she
again hit the Top 20 here in the U.K with her version of 'I Drove All Night' (Chart '7' U.K) of course this one also a hit for music-legend
'Roy Orbison' and again later for 'Celine Dion' - In Truth I Love all three Versions that i've listed.
Into the 90's 'Cyndi' continued to pepper the U.K Chart with songs such as - 'The World Is Stone' (Chart '15' 1992) and a re-jig of the
'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' Hit - 'Now Then' (Girls Just Want To Have Fun) (Chart '4' 1994) she continued to chart in the lower area's
of the U.K Charts for a few years to follow.......her era chart-wise 1983 to 1995.
'Cyndi' continues to perform...........

Considering she's an 80's icon, Cyndi Lauper's music travels incredibly well and is a delight to listen to now. It's melodic and timeless. This is a great summary of her work, covering the fun party pop, like Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, She Bop and Iko Iko, and her more sensual songs: I Drove All Night, I Don't Want to be Your Friend, and of course Time After Time. I find listening to this album both nostalgic and a relaxing.

This is now probably the best of several single CD hits collections by Cyndi Lauper, including her original greatest hits "Seven deadly cyns" which misses out on The Goonies song. As its a great track, this collection may be a better option.

Cyndi Lauper had huge success for a comparatively short period, alongside early Madonna. She was always more quirky and eccentric than Madonna, and so fell out of the mass-market popularity she enjoyed with songs like poppy "Girls just wanna have fun", and the thoughtful intimate ballads "Time after Time" and "True Colors" - and yet she appealed to many of the same fans, drawn to her catchy liberating pop songs. True Colors in particular became a gay anthem.

This is a very strong collection of songs, by turns cheerful and soulful, by a very individual and unique talent with a no-less unique voice.
