As the great musical poet Kiki Dee once said, “I’ve got the music in me.” Seriously, music is part of my daily life, so I participate in Song Lyric Sunday.
This week’s theme is angel, and DJ Tara’s choice… is not a song, but a band that includes that word. One of my favorite songs. By one of my favorite singers.
In 1994, Cyndi Lauper dropped (as the kids say) a greatest hits CD, 12 Deadly Cyns… And Then Some. On that CD, she re-recorded songs from her original band, Blue Angel. My favorite of their songs (below, with Blue Angel in 1980 and from the 1994 release): I’m Gonna Be Strong. It’s a song from the 60s, written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. More info here.
No one can belt like Cyndi.
