Time to start the daily seasonal videos with Cyndi Lauper beautifully singing ‘December Child’
Video Archive 74 – Another gem I’ve just been sent – Cyndi Lauper at home in my hat days – is it really 20 years ago? Shurely some mistake . . .
Video Archive 71 – Congratulations to Cyndi Lauper and her musical Kinky Boots which opens this week in London! Here’s the official video to the song ‘Sisters of Avalon’ – recognised in Cyndi’s recent induction into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame as ‘one of Lauper’s key songs in her catalog.’The chant of empowerment mixes a story of FGM and how all women feel the pain of another sister. I couldn’t make the video shoot so Cyndi made a visual statement about empowering people with disabilities by placing the keyboard player in a wheelchair.
Video Archive 68 – and so the season starts … found this beautiful version of ‘December Child’ by Rosie Thomas – what a lovely version of a lullaby written with Cyndi long ago …
Video Archive 64 – My friend and guitarist extrodinaire Kat Dyson just sent me this link to a show we did with Cyndi Lauper in the UK back in the 90s.
Something to watch with your coffee. Enjoy the day everyone!
Video Archive 63 –
Back from an incredible weekend in London seeing the Kinky Boots preview with music by my old cohort Cyndi Lauper – so you know I just had to post this from San Remo many moons ago but we’re still having fun!
Video Archive 61 -The daily video archive returns with Junior Vasquez in the studio with Cyndi Lauper working on the remix of ‘Come on Home’ and Cyndi showing off her amazing voice and why she became such a superstar. There is a little bit of Sir Jam’s rap which I recorded in my studio but it never made it to the final cut … does anyone have a version of that Demetrius SirJam Ross? Happy days in New York City in the nineties.
Video Archive 57 – Written as an anthem for women here is Sisters of Avalon performed by Ani di Franco and Cynd Lauper – I hope the chant resonates across the world tonight for all the refugees and displaced women – they are all our sisters and mothers
Video Archive 56 – Come on Home – Summer might be here at last so open the windows and dance along to the Dream Drums and this Ruff Factory Dub from the 90s – oh and when it’s over Come on Home!
