This post is for Mike! Mike had commented on my last entry that I hadn't written about Cyndi Lauper, who was an important fixture on the '80s scene. Well, when I was in 5th grade, she released the album "She's So Unusual." The year was 1984 I believe. I absolutely LOVED that album and listened to it over and over. That was about the time when I think I was first allowed to have slumber parties, which were SO much fun. Yup -- just invite a handful of your closest (girl) friends over, have pizza, snacks, put the records on, and dance and sing (or lip sync) into the wee hours. Sleeping bags were there, but not really for sleeping -- more for giggling and storytelling in the dark. Boy, those were some fun times. It was just after we had started band, so all of my closest girlfriends were in band with me. Good times! Needless to say, my "She's So Unusual" LP was full of skips -- you know, from when you're dancing around and the needle skips and scratches across the vinyl.
