Welcome to the 
"Cyndi Lauper" 
Video Archive!
Moments from the Past!
"Collection #1"
1.  It seems like such a long time ago, when Cyndi first appeared in her music
video "Girls just wanna have fun" dancing down the sidewalk, and into
our lives.
2.  Looking 'absolutely fabulous' Cyndi makes her grand appearance on
"American Bandstand" singing "Girls just wanna have fun."  After introducing
the members of her band, Cyndi spends a delightful moment visiting with
Dick Clark.  Slowing things down, Cyndi performs her beautiful
ballad, "Time after time."
3.  While appearing on the "American Music Awards" Cyndi comments to her
co-presenters that whoever is having the most fun, gets to start!
"I guess that's me!" she exclaims.
4.  The heartfelt touching video for "Time after time."
5.  Slipping into the role of Guest VJ, Cyndi stops by the set of MTV
to play some of her favorite music videos!  In between each of them
she shares her thoughts with us!
6.  Stepping to the stage, Cyndi performs several selections from her debut
album, during this particular installment of "Rock of the 80's."  Kicking things
off to a rousing start, Cyndi begins her five song set with "She Bop" which is
definitely a crowd pleaser!  It's amazing to consider that until just recently no
one had even heard of Cyndi before and here she is performing like a seasoned
professional!  After two upbeat musical numbers, she slows things down with
"Time after time."  Then shifting gears once again, she brings the level of
excitement back up with "Money changes everything."  One of the elements
that sets this 'mini-concert' apart from the rest is that the crowd is right at
her feet!  The stage is very small and she is constantly shaking hands with
the fans, or sitting right down in front of them, or as she does on "Girls just
wanna have fun" she bops out into the audience!  Truly a great concert!
Wonderful close ups!  Full screen!
7.  Making a special appearance on "Solid Gold" Cyndi performs a stirring
rendition of her number one hit, "Time after time."  Cyndi looks
absolutely wonderful!
8. Cyndi invites us along as she performs several selections at the "Montreux 
Golden Rose Pop Festival."  After a spirited version of "Money changes everything"
Cyndi slows things down with a sensational version of "Time after time."
Returning to the stage she finishes with "Girls just wanna have fun."
9.  Adding a bit of color to the festivities, Cyndi makes a special appearance on the
first annual MTV Music Awards.
10.  After four top ten singles, 'Entertainment Tonight' catches up with the
talented superstar.  Looking 'colorful' as always, Cyndi simply captures your
attention.  During this interesting moment, she is asked what she wants to
be remembered for which causes her to pause for a minute.  Even though
she has become quite popular, very little has changed for her.
11.  MTV caught up with Presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro as she
visited with Cyndi Lauper.
12.  In another area of "showmanship" Cyndi appears on camera to talk about
her new role as the manager for one of the female wrestlers of the "WWF."  
Ironically, this particular interview is mainly centered around her interest in 
that sport.  You'll absolutely love this "up close full screen moment!"
13.  Music video for "She Bop."
14.  Even though she was "so unusual" Cyndi managed to capture everyone's
attention during her first year on the music scene.  Which is quite clear by the
time she made this "exceptional" appearance on the "American Music Awards."
This is one of my all time favorite moments with the talented superstar!  Stepping
forth from a "wall of shoes" Cyndi is dressed in a wonderful outfit, topped off with
a beret.  What makes this moment so remarkable is the fact, all you see is the
"yellow" hair and then she whips her cap off and the rest of her hair is "RED!"
Simply marvelous!  She performs the song "When you were mine."  Afterwards,
she wins "Favorite Pop Video - Female" which is really, really cute!  Later in the
evening she wins the award for "Favorite Pop Female."
15.  Immediately following the "American Music Awards" nearly forty-five of the
biggest names in pop music got together in the studio that very evening to 
record "We are the World."  As they are recording the song, there's a really
cute moment when they stop the tape because they have picked up on a noise
of some kind in the background.  It turns out to be several of Cyndi's necklaces
and earrings rubbing together!
"Collection #2"
1.  Returning to the set of "Solid Gold" Cyndi performs a rousing rendition of "She Bop!"
Dressed all in white, with all sorts of "sparkles" and "jewelry" she once again sets the
stage for the "unusual."  Truly an exceptional performance!
2.  Winning the award for "Best New Artist" Cyndi is clearly everyone's favorite,
during this particular installment from the 27th annual Grammy Awards.  She looks
fabulous!  Afterwards she returns for a delightful rendition of her signature ballad
"Time after time."  Wonderful full screen moment!
3.  Performing her classic number "Girls just wanna have fun" Cyndi makes a
smashing appearance on the "Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."  After
picking up her jewelry and her shoes, she joins Johnny for a delightful
interview!  When asked about her appearance she jokes with Johnny that
"he" is the one who dresses "unusual."  Which is nothing short of hilarious!
As they continue to visit, Cyndi takes over the show, talking about all these
off the wall things, that seem to make sense!  Returning to the stage she
performs a touching version of "Time after time."
4.  This "Behind the Scenes" look into the making of the music video,
"Goonies" adds a greater depth to our understanding on how it was
all put together.  Cyndi looks absolutely sensational!
5.  True to her love for the "outrageous!" Cyndi's music video for

with over the top props, multi colored outfits, and Cyndi's quirky sense of
 humor sprinkled throughout.

award during this particular moment from the MTV Awards.

moment like no one else!  After a touching rendition of her song, "True Colors"

of Heart."  Which is nothing short of fabulous!

music videos for "True Colors" and "What's going on."  Both of which are
"exceptional!" and "extraordinary!"
10.  "Entertainment Tonight" caught up with all the guests on hand to
pay their respects to Dick Clark and his long running musical program,
"American Bandstand."  Cyndi expresses her thoughts on the occasion.
11.  During a special two song set of "Change of Heart" and "True Colours"
Cyndi charges up the audience with her "exceptional" performance at the
1987 MTV Music Awards.  Cyndi is simply remarkable!
12.  Returning to the late night setting, Cyndi stops by "Late Night with
David Lettermen" for a spirited rendition of her hit song, "True Colors."

things, some of which will surprise you!

developed since her first role in front of the camera in "Vibes."

"It's not if you win or loose, it's what you wear!"  And it's quite clear from the
simple but elegant evening gown she has chosen for the evening.  She looks great!
19.  Time seems to be a factor in Cyndi's appearances as well, because it would be

Lawrence on stage for the 21st "American Music Awards" Cyndi helps
present one of the awards for the evening.

Thank you"
for taking the time to read through these rather lengthy descriptions!  

I know it seems rather "incredible" to believe!  
All these moments from the past.
Moments that you might have missed recording.
And those that you have only heard about!

Throughout the years, I've
shared many of these clips from my collection
with my friends.  They have always been astounded by all the appearances
that I was able to record.  To ensure the highest quality possible, I use a 
"dual deck"
vcr when I'm sharing any of these moments from my collection
onto video tape. 
I'm also able to place these moments onto DVD, as well.
I look forward to hearing from you!
