The Cyndi Lauper Bio
Cyndi Lauper was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in the neighboring borough of Queens. In 1977, Lauper began writing her own material with keyboardist John Turi. The duo formed Blue Angel that same year. Over the next few years, the group built up a solid following in New York, culminating in the release of an eponymous debut album on Polydor in 1980. The Blue Angel record flopped and shortly afterward, Lauper filed for bankruptcy, which led to the disbandment of Blue Angel. Following the breakup of the group, Cyndi Lauper sang in local clubs and restaurants. In 1983, her manager and boyfriend David Wolff managed to secure her a contract with Portrait. At the end of the year, she released her debut album, She’s So Unusual. Helped by heavy MTV support of the album’s first single/video “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” Cyndi Lauper’s So Unusual became a major hit in the spring of 1984, eventually climbing to number four on the U.S. charts; it would wind up going platinum five times, as well as becoming a hit in the U.K. and Europe. “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” peaked at number two, while its follow-up, the ballad “Time After Time,” reached number one; two other songs, “She Bop” and “All Through the Night,” went Top Ten.
Cyndi Lauper was one of the biggest stars of the early MTV era, selling five million copies of her debut album, Cyndi Lauper’s So Unusual, as well as scoring a string of four Top Ten hits from the record, including the major hits “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “Time After Time.” Cyndi Lauper’s thin, girlish voice and gleefully ragtag appearance became one of the most distinctive images of the early ’80s, which helped lead her not only to the top of the charts, but also to stardom. Throughout America, there were numbers of teenage girls dressing like Lauper and using “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” as an vanthem, a call to arms for self-expression. At first, Cyndi Lauper’s music was a bright, colorful new wave fusion of a number of styles, including new wave, post-punk, reggae, pop, and funk. Both her music and her appearance helped popularize — and just as importantly, sanitize — the image of punk and new wave for America, making it an acceptable part of the pop landscape. Cyndi Lauper didn’t follow through on the success of She’s So Unusual, choosing to turn toward middle-of-the-road balladry and mainstream pop, but her first album remains a benchmark of the early ’80s.
With the success of She’s So Unusual under her belt, Cyndi Lauper was an official star, yet she wasn’t able to maintain her popularity. During 1985 she worked on her follow-up album; her only release of the year was “The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough,” the theme song from the children’s adventure film The Goonies. Cyndi Lauper’s second album, True Colors, appeared in the fall of 1986, and while it was successful — the title track went to number one, while the album peaked at number four and went platinum — its softer, adult contemporary sound lost Lauper some fans. Cyndi Lauper’s career continued to lose momentum, as her feature film debut in 1988’s comedy Vibes bombed. A Night to Remember, her third album, was released to weak reviews in 1989, and although it spawned the Top Ten hit “I Drove All Night,” it suffered from disappointing sales, peaking at number 37. The next year, Cyndi Lauper severed her relationship with Wolff and married actor David Thornton.
After taking a few years off, Cyndi Lauper returned in 1993 with Hat Full of Stars, an album where she co-produced and co-wrote all of the tracks. The record stiffed, peaking at 112. The following year, the hits compilation Twelve Deadly Cyns…and Then Some was released in the U.K.; the album reached number two, while a remixed “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” became a number one hit. Twelve Deadly Cyns was released in America the following career to less attention. Cyndi Lauper released Sisters of Avalon, her first album of new material in four years, in the spring of 1997 to generally positive reviews, yet the record didn’t chart. Merry Christmas…Have a Nice Life! followed in late 1998.
