Musical Monday

I’m always on the lookout for new songs to add to my iTunes library. I mean, music and writing go hand in hand for me. For each novel I write, I make a note of the songs that were playing on my headphones while pounding out the words. Same with biking.

What better way to celebrate than to have me, the main character, host, right? So, I hear Monday is all about music. That’s cool with me, because I’ve got the[…]

THEN AND NOW THURSDAYS

Remember Cyndi Lauper? I first remember her from the movie Goonies. Yeah, that sweet theme song…LOL. And Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. She was a unique bird back then, wasn’t she? Oh, but she can sing. Remember the long red hair? The colorful eye make-up She had a unique way of dancing, didn’t she? Then when she showed up on American Idol last week I saw she can still sting, and she looks great! Boy oh how she’s changed. ~~~ What’s your favorite Cyndi Lauper song? I’d have to say mine is “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” ~~~
