This past Tuesday my friends and I experienced our first ever Cyndi Lauper concert. Cyndi was promoting her new album "Memphis Blues". I didn't know any of the songs to her new album and most likely neither did anyone else in the audience, but she made sure everyone had fun. Throughout the show, you'd hear someone in the crowd requesting that she'd sing one of her oldies, and she'd reply with why this album was so important to her and how she's always wanted to sing the blues. She'd share stories about her past and before she would finish her story, she'd say, "but that doesn't really matter, does it?" or she'd change the topic to a whole different thing.
With her bright red hair, her outrageous outfit, and her witty personality, she had a voice that kept the crowd going. One second she was singing and dancing with the band and then she'd hop on to a chair in the crowd and sing and dance with her fans. She gave us a taste of her Blues and ended the show with a few of her great oldies. Although I only knew 2 of her songs and not even enough to sing along, my friends and I had a blast!
