From: The Goonies 'R' Good Enough (Single), Year: 1985
For some reason most of last night this classic theme song from the '80s cult classic film The Goonies kept running through my mind. I can't begin to count the times I've watched the movie and heard this track as well. She also made a music video to this song that featured a bunch of the notable Pro Wrestlers at the time, you know the ones that were actual characters, not cookie-cutter ones of today.
She was one of the first notable female Pop stars I can remember that did the whole extreme persona and weird hair colour bit. Both of my sister were, and probably still are, huge fans of Cyndi Lauper; to this day a lot of her music still gets stuck in my mind. Not that it's a bad thing, I actually like a lot of her songs.
