Who do the voodoo like Cyndi do?

17 Feb

Two things have become very clear to me since I started my blog.

  1. I’m quite obviously obsessed with the 1980’s (I honestly did not realise this); and
  2. Cyndi Lauper is everywhere.

In my post about the Goonies, Cyndi was in my head singing “its good enough, its good enough for me oh why eye eye eye eeeeyyyeeee.” When I wrote about Girls Just Wanna… again, there was Cyndi. And then this morning I woke up with an intense need to watch another 1980’s piece of cinema – Vibes, starring the one and only, Cyndi.

Seriously only watch this film if you're a huge Cyndi fan

Oh Cyndi darling, is this some crazy voodoo spell you’ve put on me? Were you some sleeper cell, giving me subliminal messages via 80’s pop music over 20 years ago? So that one day I’d wake up, watch all of your films and even quite possibly purchase your greatest hits on iTunes? (I did just do this BTW).

I honestly think she is pretty awesome. She was bucking the trends way back then. I couldn’t be bothered likening her to some of today’s artists because well, I don’t feel the need to prove anything.

I love the funny little squinty thing she does with her eyes. So there you go, Cyndi, it seems your plan has worked and worked well.

PS Your song True Colours still makes me cry. Peace out C-Girl.

I'm not sure if Cyndi needs glasses but I think its endearing.

      I have no idea! But Cyndi knows how to make you feel it. Just don’t listen to it after you’ve had a cocktail…you’ll be a blubbering mess.

        My coworkers tease me because I actually write post-it notes and stick it to my phone, so I can embarrass myself into remembering. True Story.
