Musical Friday: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Dear friends,

The song of the day is "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" - a song recorded by American recording artist Cyndi Lauper. It was the first major single released by Lauper as a solo artist and the lead-off single from her debut album She's So Unusual. Lauper’s version gained recognition as a feminist anthem and promoted by an award-winning video. It has been covered on either an album or in live concert by over 30 other artists. I remember wacthing with my sister VH1 and singing along this song :) and as today I was telling you a story about the everlasting love between sisters, I thought I might give you a sisterly song as well ;)
The single was Lauper's breakthrough hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming a worldwide hit throughout late 1983 and early 1984. It remains one of Lauper's signature songs and was a widely popular song during the era of its release, the 1980s. The "Rolling Stone & MTV: '100 Greatest Pop Songs': 1-50", "Rolling Stone: "The 100 Top Music Videos"" and the "VH1: 100 Greatest Videos" lists ranked the song at #22, #39 and #45, respectively. The song received a Grammy Award nomination for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

I come home in the morning light,
My mother says "When you gonna live your life right?"
Oh,mother,dear,
We're not the fortunate ones,
And girls,

The phone rings in the middle of the night,
My father yells "What you gonna do with your life?"
