Product Description

Product Description

Limited Edition Japanese pressing of this album comes housed in miniature LP sleeve including live bonus tracks. Sony. 2008.

Amazon.ca

If Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual evokes memories dominated mostly by her cartoonish image, then try to get over it so you can pay attention to the music. Simply, Cyndi Lauper has a wonderful, emotive voice. Her vocals have an impish quality, but there's also tremendous strength, articulation, and nuance. Who would disagree that "Time After Time" (later covered by both Everything but the Girl and Miles Davis, if you need further proof of her credibility) is as heartstring-tugging as "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" is frivolous, or that "All Through the Night" is as longing as "She-Bop" is intense? The instrumental arrangements are quite inventive and rich, and although the musicality is pointedly '80s, the album sounds more winsome than dated. The title of Lauper's debut isn't self-deprecating or even self-parodying; it's self-congratulatory. Listen to it again, and you'll find this pleasure to be far from guilty. --Beth Bessmer

I owned this album back in the 80's. It was Cyndi vs. Madonna and Cyndi would be champ. Does anyone remember that silliness? Still, I was cheering for Cyndi. Well, we all know how it played out, but I still consider Cyndi a winner. Who wants to be as famous as Madonna, anyway - besides Madonna? The sheer torture of it all.
Cyndi was our champion. She encouraged us to walk in the sun, have fun, and play with ourselves. She was a little bit kooky, a little bit radical, and a whole lot of pop. A playful swirl of rainbow colors with an upbeat no-nonsense attitude and a generous spirit. Maybe it was the wrestling thing that was her downfall, I don't know.
Her singing voice could be surprisingly powerful, as well as a bit quirky, a bit confused, and a tad heartbroken at times. *She's So Unusual* succeeds at displaying her range of emotions and her invigorating energy.
If you need to lift your spirits, play "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"; in the mood for a bittersweet ballad then listen to "Time After Time". "Yeah Yeah" and "I'll Kiss You" are crazy fun, "When You Were Mine" is her wonderful rendition of a Prince song, "All Through the Night" is soft and gentle, and "She Bop", well, listen and decide for yourself.
Cyndi was one of the shining lights of the 80's. Even though she still burns brightly with unique talent, for a far too brief period in time she was not only the most unusual but simply The Most.

I love Cyndi Lauper. I grew up on Cyndi's music. She is one of my favorite pop artists from the '80s that I still have a lot of respect for (sorry Madonna, you lost your edge and my respect with that kabbalah schtick, "American Life" and its unintentionally hilarious lyrics, and your awful movies which I am truly sorry for ever paid money to see (just "Evita")). Being a product of the '80s, I grew up on the music that came out of that era. Music for me then was fun, and listening to Cyndi's music was one of them. Unlike her then rival Madonna, Cyndi had and still has an incredible vocal range, just listen to "Time After Time" (as well as "True Colors" from the album of the same name). Twenty years later, I can still listen to "She's So Unusual" and still enjoy listening to it as much as I did back in the '80s. It is a given that I love the smash "Girls Just Want to Have Some Fun". It is bouncy, catchy and oh so fun to jump up and down like a spastic 12 year old on a caffeine binge. My favortie ballad as to be "All Through the Night". I like "Time After Time" but "All Through the Night" is my personal favorite. I love singing along to the song which is pretty scary to see and hear considering the fact that I am tone deaf. My other personal favorite track is "She Bop", an ode to the joys of, um, well...go use your imagination if you have one. I just love that deep synth line. It is incredibly infectious and addictive. The perfect pop song. All the more reasons why I love music from the '80s. It was all about fun. After twenty years, "She's So Unusual" still holds up well all these years. It brings back memories of when music was fun and interesting.

I just love everything about Cyndi Lauper.Her music takes me back to my teen years.Especially this album filled with such memorable rock songs.I remember seeing the video for Time After Time,and I cried my eyes out.Girls Just Want To Have Fun seems to be everyone's favourite.Cyndi is so colourful that all her colour seems to spread all over everything she does.I loved her video for She Bop.Another favourite of mine is All Through The Night.There's something special about the sound of that song.Definetly one of the best albums from the 80s.

Before becoming another 80s solo pop star, Cyndi Lauper was in a band named BLUE ANGEL. Nobody ever knew who she was. But in 1983, Cyndi went solo and released her debut album, SHE'S SO UNUSUAL. This album shows that Cyndi was off to a fresh start.
MONEY CHANGES EVERYTHING
The second single from the album. Awesome song.
GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN
The first single from the album. This song definitely defines Cyndi's sound and image. It will remain a classic forever.
WHEN YOU WERE MINE
This is a good song, but I hate the fact that it was originally recorded by PRINCE. I hate Prince.
TIME AFTER TIME
The third single from the album. Although a great song, I'm kind of tired of hearing it.
SHE BOP
The fourth single from the album. I've always liked this song. When I first heard what the song was really about, my mouth dropped. The song is about female masturbation. I can't believe that the critic didn't bother Cyndi on this one. If Madonna had done it, they would have harrassed her.
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
The fifth and final single from the album. This song is one of my favorites. I heard the live version of this and I wasn't all that impressed, but this song is one of her best.
WITNESS
Okay.
I'LL KISS YOU
Not bad.
HE'S SO UNUSUAL
Pretty funny.
YEAH YEAH
Okay.
The album isn't as good as her third, which would be A NIGHT TO REMEMBER, but this one is still worth the money.
