Keith Urban...? Isn't he in Star Trek...? :mrgreen:

If Keith Urban ended up playing a character on "Star Trek Discovery," I wouldn't know about it.  Because in the U.S. you have to pay a subscription fee on CBS All Access.  It's my understanding that in Europe you can watch it on Netflix, no extra charge.  That should be interesting, though.  He could play the chief engineer with an Australian accent who sings country songs.   ;D

The pretty boys of new country could learn something from Cyndi Lauper's authentic vocals.  I'm just wondering if they have any idea how awful they really sound.  Evidently not.

Cyndi is very strange but she has the pipes to pull off just about any style, and if anything she's gotten better with age.

The old days were fun, though.

It makes sense that her signature song was "Girls Just Want To Have Fun," but I like this one more.  Since then she has shown that going from one genre to another doesn't faze her.

Cyndi rules!  To derail this thread even further, this is one of my favorites from back in the day.

She Bop was supposedly about female masturbation.

She Bop was supposedly about female masturbation.

The video was shown a lot on MTV and there are all kinds of hints throughout the song.  I like the song mostly because of the melody, though.  The lyrics could have been about anything.  It's strange that in spite of all this, it's Madonna that became more of the figure in the 80s associated with sex.  Much more so than Cyndi Lauper.  I was just reading some stuff a few minutes ago and it seems Cyndi Lauper started losing her popularity pretty quickly by the late 80s.  I don't know exactly what happened because I never really kept up with her career.  Also, there seem to be very few clips of live performances from the 80s.  Her fans claim that a lot of good performances have been lost forever.
