Cheesy Song of the Day, December 28:

All Through The NightCyndi Lauper

I have a crush on Jules Shear because he wrote one of my favorite songs in the world. Imagine my surprise when I found out that he also wrote today’s cheesy song pick! And yet I feel like I knew this (and forgot it) because I was kinda obsessed with  She’s So Unusual.

What’s YOUR Cheesy Song of the Day?

If you fall….


Cheesy Song of the Day, August 24:

‘Time After Time’ Cyndi Lauper/Tuck & Patti

for some reason, i can’t sleep.  and when i do fall asleep, i have loopy dreams featuring La Dolce Vita, George Clooney‘s imaginary pet cat, bas mitzvahs and Colombia.  My mind is working overtime, no matter what I do.  Crazy making with no easy fix.
