True Colors (Acoustic) | Cyndi Lauper
One of the things Pandora introduced me to tonight, was this acoustic album that Cyndi put out a few years ago. In the debate between Madonna and Cyndi, I’ve always held the probably unpopular idea that Cyndi was just so much more talented than Madonna - so much more a true artist, rather than a skillful marketing maven.
This is one of my favourite songs, ever… but I truly heard it in a different light tonight… It used to be something to send to friends… Tonight, its meaning deepened… Very few artists today have the courage to really explore their hits and make them into something different… There’s this idea that it’s “done” and it needs to be put away… and, this song proves… that’s not always the case. I guess it’s all in the fruit of the material, though.
Anyhow, good night, world… xxoxx
