Video Archive 53 – ‘You Don’t Know’ – Tony Moran’s uplifting remix of another classic Cyndi Lauper performance sets the stage for the start of another week. This without a doubt is my favourite remix of any song I was involved with – I can still remember the feeling of hearing it for the first time. Thanks Tony and Thanks Cyndi!
Video Archive 51 – Come on Home – Another Junior Vasquez Sound Factory remix to kick the rain out of the weekend. The sound of NYC in the 90s – Cyndi Lauper singing ’Come on Home’ – When life isn’t fair – don’t go there!
Video Archive 44 – TV show with Cyndi and Angelique Kidjo
I’ve been really lucky in my life to work with some fantastic artists. Here’s one such occasion when I was in France with Cyndi Lauper and Angélique Kidjo on the TV show Taratata. Power house vocals from two consumate divas. Shake off the cobwebs y’all!
Video Archive 41 – You Don’t Know – Spent most of yesterday preparing for a new show format (which will be incorporating video and chat along with live music in virtual worlds) and came across this performance from Cyndi and the Sisters of Avalon tour band on the Jay Leno Show in 1997 – great days then – great days now!
Video Archive 35 – Bonga Bonga Bonga do the Christmas Conga! – Last week, on the hottest day of the year, Phil Jackson and I did an interview for BBC Radio Suffolk about the Christmas Waltze ( yes less than 6 months to the big day) I jokingly mentioned one of my Xmas songs gets into the list of the worst every year – haha – i think it’s one of the best – brings a smile and cheer. Here’s a fun video someone made to go with the Christmas Conga sung and co-written by the inimitable Cyndi Lauper of course!

Video Archive 31 – If you Believe – And now for something completely different – Here’s a song I had a hand in writing with Faye Tozer of Steps and Cyndi. This version shows how a song can be arranged in OH so many different ways. Here’s Faye doing a dance routine to a tripped out version of what started out as a mid tempo ballad on the Steps Album ‘Buzz’.
Video Archive 28 – Early Christmas Morning Yesterday we launched the Christmas Waltze with Phil Jackson and so to help count us down to the season of dancing and goodwill here’s another Xmas Song from Cyndi Lauper. Step 2 3 …
Video Archive 26 – Amazing what you find on line! Here’s a demo of ‘Comfort You’ by Cyndi Lauper (I recorded it and I don’t even have a copy!) Cyndi reworked the song and put it on the Shine Album – Always interesting to hear demos – The spirit of the song is very present in this first incarnation.
