When I heard that another Cyndi Lauper best-of album was going to be released, my first question was whether this new collection would measure up to her previous best-of collections, especially 12 Deadly Cyns...And Then Some. Well I can tell you that it certainly does. Essential Cyndi Lauper, in my opinion, comes the closest to being the ideal Cyndi collection available. But before I go on, I thought it would be helpful to first give a track listing (taken from her official website) since there doesn't seem to be one here: 1) Girls Just Want To Have Fun 2) Money Changes Everything 3) Who Let In The Rain 4) She Bop 5) Time After Time 6) I Drove All Night 7) Hat Full Of Stars 8) Change Of Heart 9) Sisters Of Avalon 10) All Through The Night 11) True Colors 12) When You Were Mine 13) Unhook The Stars 14) The Goonies 'R' Good Enough The first thing I noticed about this collection is that it offers *all 6* of the...
Sure, before you could buy the pricey imports, but "The Essential Cyndi Lauper" is much better than her previous American "hits" collections. It's not perfect, yet I think it's superior to "12 Deadly Cyns." The big complaint was that for so long, american fans couldn't get "Good Enough" from "The goonies." Well, FINALLY it's included. Whether or not Cyndi likes the song, it's an 80's movie song classic and was a top 10 hit. Eight of Cyndi's top 10 hits are on here including the classic "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", "She Bop", "All Through the Night" and "Time After Time" frm her debut. all four of these were massive radio hits and still heard to this day. "True Colors" and "Change of Heart" were big hits off of her sophomore album. Her last top 10 single is included too from "A Night to Remember" which is "I Drove All Night" *recently Celine Dion did an...
Honestly I feel that this cd could have been better. I cannot give it less than 4 stars because it has all of her Big Hits, even the top 10 Goonies song which many have been craving here in the U.S. but it does lack a lot of other songs. Hole In My Heart, You Don't Know, Ballad Of Cleo And Joe, Disco Inferno, and Shine are all left out while Unhook The Stars, and Sisters Of Avalon are included. Not sure why they do not really make a collection with true hits and remixes of those latter hits. Well I guess you ahd to buy the singles when they came out to get it. Other than that it is almost the same as Twelve Deadly Cyns... And Then Some. So unless you want to collect them all you can live without it if you have all her albums.
