This weekend on the Retro Pop Reunion, we continue our special APRIL A-To-Z by dipping our toes into the C’s, D’s, and the E’s (for Easter), starting with the SO UNUSUAL talents of Cyndi Lauper!
C – Cyndi Lauper
Cyndi’s breakthrough 1983 album had a HUGE list of hits, and has propelled her into the spotlight as a performer, and now Tony award-winning producer for “Kinky Boots” in 2013. She’s the first solo woman to ever win a Tony award for best original score – a huge score (pun intended) for her!
D – “Don’t Stop Believin'” was from… DAD?
It’s true, but that advice that Mom and Dad give you IS worth something! Parental advice inspired the most-downloaded song of the 21st century. Join us and learn how a backstory with DAD and some good advice about believing in yourself turned into an all-time anthem.
E – “Every Breath You Take” by the Police
There is a unique James Bond connection to this song that not many of us know about; it wasn’t in any Bond movies and not about a “Bond Girl.” But, when we hit the letter “E,” you’ll want to know the UNIQUE connection between Sting and 007 that makes this song so iconic and unique.
