Cyndi Lauper has always been such an interesting specimen to me.  She has such a beautiful singing voice, yet her speaking voice…not so much!  But hey, that’s why KOOL plays her songs – and not her conversations.  Lauper just finished writing her memoir.  And, unless you buy the audio book, you’re still safe!

The book is called “Cyndi Lauper.” Creative, right?  It will be released by Atria this Fall and will cover her life’s story, from a troubled childhood to 1980’s stardom to the “ups and downs” in the afterglow.  According to Cyndi, “Sometimes I come off good, sometimes not so good.”

Here’s my all-time favorite Cyndi Lauper song.  If you know me, you know I never pick the obvious choice.  It’s NOT “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.”  It’s NOT “Time After Time.”  It’s NOT even “True Colors.”  Remember this one?
