Cyndi Lauper has a Great Personality

Laura Fissinger, Creem, May 1984

NEW YORK — We've only got a little time here, so let's go right for the trouble spot: After a recent Lauper set in New York, a well-worn rock observer summed her up as "good convertible music." Singer/writer/big heart Cyndi is so much more than a Go-Go or a Josie Cotton; if the world doesn't figure that out, Lauper's devotees will be very upset. Lauper herself will go to her deathbed trying to figure out a way to make contact. People who really do drive convertibles worry about the vehicle, not the destination, right?
