Cyndi Lauper - Echo

"All of my days, all of my nights standin' by you"

Funny thing about Cyndi Lauper: she's got everything I look for in an artist... great singles, fantastic voice, upbeat music, charisma, etc etc, yet for whatever reason I have never actually listened to one of her albums before. It's crazy, because I've always loved her. So, unlike 99.9% of the listeners out there, her new album Bring Ya To The Brink is my very first Lauper album. And, it's pretty good. I mean, there's some filler of course, but it's sure a hell of a lot better than that pathetic Madonna effort (hang it up already, please!). It includes at least three certifiable classics (Into The Nightlife, Echo and Grab A Hold), which is pretty impressive for an album released so late in an artist's career. I was originally going to post Into The Nightlife (my favorite), but I heard it'll probably be the second single so instead I'm going to post Echo, which coincidentally shares the same writer/producers. Great verses, amazing chorus... pretty much a perfect song. I am very impressed, and I'm going to have to delve into her back catalog now. It's about freaking time.

Hey, so I wasn't sure about these guys at first listen, but after downloading and listening to it a couple times, they are crazy catchy. Thanks!
