    I saw one of her more recent performances a while back. She can still kill it.

    She mentions wrestler Rocky Johnson who happens to be Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's father.

    She just never gets old. I remember that WTF moment, i think it was an awards show and when she went onstage she brought Hulk Hogan with her. It was the first known connection (for me) with Cindy and the WWF. She explained while Hulk just flexed 'em. :D

    Her music still stands up today. I teach high school and often will play an 80s mix when my juniors and seniors are doing longer projects. They love her songs.

    Fantastic. Big energy. And a voice you really can't control (not slagging it, it's free and individual).

    And Johnny called her over to the desk...Wow. So many comics wished for that, but never got it. Johnny called her over! Wow.

    What a great voice.

    Still my favorite concert I've ever seen. True Colors Tour, Seattle 1987. One I'll never forget.

    Two things:

    For 30 years, I thought the line was "What in the world can they get done?/Girls just wanna have fun";

    In 1984, I was absolutely convinced that Lauper would have a much bigger career than Madonna. Much bigger.

    I used to have a thing for her. Come to think of it, I still do. Time after Time is one of those songs that really gets me.
