Cyndi Lauper: Detour

CyndiLauperDetourAfter 33 years and 50 million album sales, the ever-versatile Cyndi Lauper—one of only 20 people to earn Emmy, Grammy, and Tony awards—puts her signature spin on a dozen classic country songs from the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s on her new album. Wanda Jackson’s “Funnel of Love” is the first of a dozen tunes made famous by artists ranging from Ray Price and Patsy Cline to Marty Robbins and Dolly Parton. Cyndi Lauper and country music? Not a combo that immediately comes to mind. But on Detour, the unpredictable siren proves once again that her magnificent voice can bring to life any genre of music.
