Playlist Time!

Inspired in part by the Official Losers’ Club playlist and the IT cast themselves, but I wanted to put my own spin on it and throw in some additional tracks that give me that Losers’ Club vibe. Some songs are on the shippy side (particularly Reddie), but for the most part I wanted this to apply to the whole group. Enjoy!

On this day in music history: October 14, 1983 - “She’s So Unusual”, the debut album by Cyndi Lauper is released. Produced by Rick Chertoff, William Wittman and Cyndi Lauper, it is recorded at the Record Plant in New York City from December 1, 1982 - June 30, 1983. Having spent nearly a decade of singing in various cover bands, Lauper suffers numerous hard knocks and career setbacks, including damaged vocal chords, the break up of her band Blue Angel after the failure of their lone album, and personal bankruptcy. Her luck turns around in 1981 when she meets David Wolff while singing in a local bar in New York City. Wolff becomes her manager, helping her to secure a record deal with CBS/Epic subsidiary Portrait Records in 1982. Paired with producer Rick Chertoff, he brings in his friends Rob Hyman (keyboards, synthesizers, backing vocals), and Eric Bazilian (bass, guitar, backing vocals) (of The Hooters), drummer Anton Fig, bassist Neil Jason, singer/songwriter Jules Shear and Ellie Greenwich (backing vocals) to play on the album. Initially getting off to a slow start, things pick up steam rapidly when the music video for the first single “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” (#2 Pop) goes into heavy rotation on MTV, and other video outlets at the end of the year. The album launches the Queens, NY born vocalist into pop superstardom, with Lauper becoming the first female artist in history to spin off four top five singles from one album, including “Time After Time” (#1 Pop), “She Bop” (#3 Pop), and “All Through The Night” (#5 Pop). “Unusual” spends 65 weeks in the top 40 alone (77 weeks total on the Top 200), winning Cyndi the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1985. It also wins a second Grammy (for art director Janet Perr) for Best Album Package. The memorable front and back cover photos were taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz at Coney Island in New York City. The album is first remastered and reissued on CD in 2000 with four additional bonus tracks. It is remastered and reissued again in 2014 for its thirtieth anniversary on CD and clear vinyl with remixes of “Girls” and “Time After Time”. A special two CD boxed edition is also released with the bonus disc containing non LP B-sides, demos, live recordings and studio outtakes. The box unfolds into a 3D diorama mock up of Cyndi’s bedroom from the “Girls” video. It also comes with a paper cut out of the singer, and sheet of vinyl colorforms with various outfits to dress the doll with. The Japanese edition includes “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough” as a bonus track, and a DVD with an hour long documentary on the making of “She’s So Unusual”. The boxed edition also comes with a twenty four page full color booklet, fully annotated and featuring dozens of rare and previously unpublished photos from the album’s cover photo shoot. “She’s So Unusual” peaks at number four on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 6x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Cyndi Lauper - All Trough The Night

~ I really love a lot of her songs, and can’t make up my mind which I love the most. Maybe this one. Or maybe «She Bop». Or perhaps «The Goonies ‘r’ Good Enough»….

anonymous asked:

hi

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to run away I’ve got to

Poor old Johnny Ray sounded sad upon the radio

Here we are hanging onto strains of greed and blues

Outside there’s a box car waiting outside the family stew

I heat up, I can’t cool down you got me spinning

The songs are tainted love by Soft Cell, Come on Eileen by Denys midnight runner, the goonies r good enough by Cyndi Lauper, here comes your man by the pixies and abracadabra by steve miller band
