Musical Interlude: Time After Time (1984)

I have to admit I was not a big fan of Cyndi Lauper. However, "Time After Time", the 2nd single off "She's So Unusual", is my favorite Lauper song, showcasing Cyndi's more serious side, which has emerged again in recent years as she's veered away from whimsical pop to adult contemporary to creating the Broadway musical, "Kinky Boots".

Then-boyfriend Dave Wolf and the late Captain Lou Albano, at the time steady members of the Lauper repertory company, appear in the video, with Albano as a short-order cook in a diner.

To think that Lauper, the former lead singer of a little known indy band, Blue Angel, and Madonna broke out around the same time (winter 1983-4), and were so different in style, and different in their divergent career paths, and both are still active.
