I defy you to find a true pop music fan who doesn't hold Cyndi Lauper's 1983 debut LP She's So Unusual dear. With its fistful of Billboard-charting New Wave singles — "Time After Time," "She Bop," "All Through the Night," "Money Changes Everything" and one of the most explosive pop debuts of all time, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" — Unusual launched the then-30-year-old singer to stardom and earned her the Best New Artist trophy at the 1985 Grammys.
In October, She's So Unusual sees its 30th anniversary, and in celebration, Lauper is launching a tour that will bring her to TPAC's Andrew Jackson Hall on Nov. 5. According to a release, "At each concert Lauper will perform the record-setting album in its entirety and share intimate, never-before-heard stories from the recording of the album." Tickets go on sale this Friday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m. via this link.
Because She's So Unusual was released in the Golden Age of the Music Video, have a look at some of Lauper's Grade-A clips after the jump.
