Cyndi Lauper: A Singer Who Has Stood The Test of Time and Above All Is The Ultimate Storyteller

When an artist has the sustainability to last for over 40 years there are many things that give her credibility. In talking about her various awards I think it's important to discuss what made them noteworthy.

In 1983 Cyndi released her first solo album titled She's So Unusual. It became a worldwide hit and was the first female album to chart four singles from the same album to the top-five on Billboard's Hot 100 list. The album earned her a Grammy for Best New Artist.

Those four singles were "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", "Time After Time", "She Bop", and "All Through The Night. " At this time music videos were in the early stages of development. By choosing good directors and giving them her input, her videos were exceptionally well done. In 1984 the video for Girls won for the Best Female Video at the MTV Video Music Awards show.

In terms of Cyndi's body of work let me start by saying that Cyndi is a great story teller. In writing or co-writing with another artist she gives a lot of thought to the verses in her songs and that gives much meaning to the story.

There's a little personal favoritism on my part here, as I just love to listen to native New York folks talk. Their accent is infectious. She was born and raised in Queens. So when she tells a story I cannot help but be enthused by it.
