Cyndi Lauper’s Evolution Of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”: Listen To The Original Demo

87405bf3a71f79dbc985857dca5200a8 Cyndi Lauper’s Evolution Of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”: Listen To The Original Demo

Pop icon Cyndi Lauper will celebrate the 30th anniversary of her debut solo album (that’s right — she’s was formerly in a short-lived band called Blue Angel) with a souped-up re-release of of She’s So Unusual on April 1. The seminal LP contains such radio and music video classics as “Time After Time,” “All Through The Night,” “She Bop” and “Money Changes Everything.” But there was one song that started it all: “Girls Just Want To Have Fun.”

A decade before the Spice Girls arrived with their tarted-up brand of girl power, Cyndi gave the world a female empowerment anthem that was both edgy and iconic, while still remaining entirely kid-friendly. And today Idolator is premiering a special audio clip that traces the evolution of the song, from it’s punk rock demo (trust, it’s practically an entirely different arrangement) to the reggae-infused rehearsal rendition of the track to the final, uplifting studio version.

Hit up VIBE for a special behind-the-scenes video on the evolution of “Girls.”

Rick Chertoff and William Whitman co-produced the Grammy-nominated “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” that we all know and love, but hearing the track in its original form, before all the bells and whistles were added in the studio, is a real treat.

It kind of makes you wonder what musical direction Cyndi, who’s now a Grammy, Emmy and Tony winner, might have gone off in had she stuck with the original instrumentation here.

Enter to win a copy of the deluxe She’s So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration.
