    I was biased towards Cyndi when Madonna first entered the music scene. I thought, "Who is this Cyndi wannabe?"

    To me Cyndi's so unusual!icon_cool.gif

    I love her. She's a genuinely gay-friendly entertainer, and that means a lot to me, when I have so many other choices.

    It's one reason I also worship Bette Midler, who was gay friendly before there was gay friendly, appearing at the Continental Baths in NYC with Barry Manilow as her accompanist.

    In a world that doesn't always like me as a gay, I choose to like a world that likes me back.

    COLORED TEXT GOES HERECindy Has been one of my favorites ever since I say her on MTV way back , True Colors is a song that hits home with alot of gay's and has been remade or re-recorded by many, Her new stuff is very cutting edge and is played on alot of radio stations. Top 40 and other wise. Thanks to all who enjoy her music and help keep her wanting to come out with new stuff , I'am waiting for her to do one with Justin Timberlake??? joe of North West Flicon_biggrin.gif

    Seen her in concert I think four times. The last time she recognized me and brought me onstage! I took off one of my CHANEL pins (2003 spring collection) and gave it to her. She rocks.

    Always thought she was way weird when I was a little kid in the 80's, but now I agree with the OP 100%.... she's incredible! I heard her perform in Provincetown a couple of years ago at a rather small and intimate venue, and I was blown away! She performed "Time After Time" at a very slow tempo... it was very moving.

    La Bette had her rehearsal studio in an apartment in Los Angeles that was next door to my best friend of many years standing. This friend and I were all but married and I all but lived over there. It was absolutely great to hear her practice and to run into her in the hall. Bette is a prima diva who is not a diva, and that really rates for me too.

    The best thing that happened was our milling around the restaurant supply stores down on Washington Blvd. looking for a second hand Viking pro range (this was before people had this stuff in their homes and my friend was a pro chef). We succeeded in buying one and finally had it delivered. The thing weighed roughly a ton. It took four men to move it up the stairs.

    While they were doing this the Divine Miss M. was belting it out next door and you could hear her plain as day in the hallway. One of the delivery men lost control of the range and it went barrelling down the stairs and crashed right through the wall of her apartment landing about 3 feet from where she was standing.

    Everyone was in shock (her included). Maybe sixty-seconds of half a dozen people muttering fuck, fuck, fuck, went by and then she started dying laughing. She had everyone on the floor in tears by the time they succeeded in hoisting this monster out of her rehearsal studio.

    Cyndi's great too. Madonna anche.

    As early as 9 years old, I learned from Cyndi that money changes everything. I still have her True Colors LP (vinyl) back in the Philippines and "Change of Heart" is currently on my iPod.

    OK...anyone that knows me and has checked out my profile knows that I'm a huge fan of her music...always have been....she is one of the most underrated artists....and has grown so much despite her '80's' legacy. All of us should be supporters of her True Colors Tours which have been to bring awareness about the need for equal rights for the GLBT community. Listen to her less commercial CDs such as Sisters of Avalon and Hat Full of Stars...along with her newest, Bring Ya to the Brink (BYTTB)....she has always been ahead of her time.

    Carlson..she never left babe...she continues to tour the world non-stop....for over 20 years....and looks fantastic doing it. By the way, she's up for a Grammy on her new CD...

    Music (Grammys/American Music), TV (Emmy), Broadway (major praise), Video and Commerical Director, Movies, Fashion Icon, and one of our greatest supporters...she's doing it all!

    Buy BYTTB on ITunes...."She's Got Candy" is a bonus single that is fantastic!! And check out her Japan-exclusive video on my profile....a Mash-up of an old favorite with a new song!!

    I love her.

    Good Enough, She Bop, Time After Time... all the way to Rain on Me and Into the Night! Great songs all of them!

    I think "Rain on Me" is so beautiful. It moves me every time I hear it.

    I'm stuck on her! She's fun and seemingly realistic. I often wonder why she fell off the scene for many years with her charisma.

    Cyndi danced on a chair right next to me in 1999, when she opened for Cher. Her energy was magnetic and exactly what I thought she would be like if I ever met her in person.

    It was also my "fifteen minutes of fame", since we both wore silver and the spotlight reflected off of us. I had soooo.... many calls from people in the coliseum who saw me with Cyndi.

    She's still in the scene and with a Sony Records deal and making excellent music...but unfortunately she is not marketed as well as others in constant rotation. She's made her millions....now it's all about the music. She didn't win the Grammy for dance/electronic album last night..but damn..she's still receiving nominations and praise....

    Last summer, I went to the True Colors concert at Bethel Woods in NY. B-52's and Cyndi Lauper; what else could you ask for at an LGBT benefit? I then saw Heart and Cheap Trick at the same venue a couple of week's later, which blew all others away. Being able to hear her Higness covering "Going to California" was an amazing experience.

    Not Bethel Woods' performance, but not bad:


    But I digress. Do I love Cyndi? No, I don't know her, so I can't love her. Do I appreciate all she has done and continues to do for our community? Yes.

    Anybody who teams up with Rick Derringer has got to rock.

    She absolutely kicks ass all over "Money Changes Everything" and Celine Dion should hang her head in shame for the jello mold version of "I Drove All Night" as it compares to Cyndi's version.
