5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Cyndi, she still wanna have fun! August 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Cyndi Lauper--how could I ever forget? That quiff of candy-coloured orange-red hair, that garish dime store prom dress she wore on the She's So Unusual album cover, and Van Gogh's Starry Night painted on the soles of her shoes (inner sleeve art)? That goony, wacky Olive Oyl meets Betty Boop meets Jean Hagen's character from Singin' In The Rain voice? That comical face that looked like it got squashed against a window and stayed that way? I wore out the tape of this and had to buy another, the only artist that's had that honour in my collection and for that reason.
Despite Madonna being the "Material Girl" in 1984, Cyndi proved she could put out a similarly themed song, "Money Changes Everything" with the in-vogue synthesizers mixed with Hooters guitarist Eric Bazilian's crunchy lead guitars. I love this song from the catchy rock rhythm. The following mirrors 80's yuppie-type business world ethics: "They say we'll be your friends/We'll stick with you till the end/Ah but everybody's only looking out for themselves/And you say well, who can you trust." The live version from the promotional 12-inch disc, has Cyndi intro-ing its recording in a typical New Yawk accent.
One of Cyndi's two signature tunes, and definitely the more fun. From the opening synth glissando that ripples from left to right speaker--the effect is best felt on headphones--to the catchy synths and drums that reflects a spirited girl responding to her parents after asking her what she's going to do with her life. As the line goes, "When the working day is done/girls, they wanna have fun. "The backing girl chorus and pizzicato-like upper range piano synths in the middle are also really neat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic and infectious November 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe it's been 17 years since this album was first released. I can remember seeing the video for "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" on TBS Night Tracks(no MTV my area then)constantly and getting taken in by it's infectious hook. That song and it's three other top five singles("Time After Time", "She Bop", and "All Through The Night") make this album one of the staples of 80's pop music, and is still lots of fun to listen to. With her eclectic style and hanging out with pro wrestlers, Cyndi Lauper's talent as a singer and songwriter got a bit overshadowed. But listening to this album again after many years makes those talents perfectly clear. Remastered and filled out with three live bonus tracks including the live video version of "Money Changes Everything", make this reissue a great value.

Let me get this out of the way:I LOVE THIS ALBUM!! Next of course to MJ's Thriller, this is THE quintessential 80s album. Personally, I love every song on this album, except "Witness" and "When You Were Mine". Those were good, but don't quite reach the caliber the other songs do. "He's So Unusual" is different than what you would probably expect, but I love it because it's catchy and adds a nice touch when it zooms into the next song "Yeah Yeah", another fun tune. Of course "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", "Time After Time", and "She-Bop" are the "star songs" on the album. But unlike the hyped-up songs of today, they are popular for a reason: they're good. Cyndi Lauper is a true phenomenon; an individual. I'll be 20 years old this year and so will the album. I can still remember dancing to "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" when I was a kid,and it was still in style! Man, do I feel old.lol But,in conclusion, buy this album. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN AWESOME DUBUT ALBUM.... August 17, 2000
By matt
Format:Audio CD
She's So Unusual is one of the best debut albums in the history of music.Unfortunately for Cyndi, with the release of this album drew unfair comparisons between herself and Madonna. Fortunately, this album is far superior to anything Madonna has put out as a whole in her entire career. She's So Unusual is a mix of fun pop songs and songs sung from the heart. There's no shortage of fun here, with Girls just Want to Have Fun, Yeah Yeah, I'll Kiss You and even She Bop which also raised a few eyebrows back in 1983. Of course, with Money Changes Everything, Time After Time, When You Were Mine (written by Prince), and All Through The Night, Cyndi's songs are so powerful and heartfelt it's hard to understand where those ridiculous Madonna comparisons came from. This is one of the best albums released in the 80's and remains one of my personal favorites today, this does not come off as 80's drek, infact it hasn't dated at all. It's a fun, emotional and wonderful exhibit of one of music's most unique and wonderful artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Soundtrack Of The Early 80's April 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Cyndi Lauper made a superlative record with "She's So Unusual". The opening 6-song punch is breathtaking in its consistency and quality, and make this album a classic. The remaining songs, while cute, are merely filler made charming by their association with such impressive material. A closer look:
01. Money Changes Everything; Possibly Cindy's best song, definitely her most rocking one. The lyrics are superb and the arrangement here is terse and harsh, as appropriate.
02. Girls Just Want To Have Fun; The classic that perfectly captured the artist's personality and image. The MTV video is infamous. Pure power pop and a pleasure to listen to.
03. When You Were Mine; a cover of the Prince song from his 'Dirty Mind' album. Wonderful arrangement, excellent vocals.
04. Time After Time; one of the best ballads (or songs, for that matter) of the 80s, and a No. 1 smash. Haunting lyrics, tortured vocals, and timeless production make this a standout.
05. She-Bop; A veiled ode to female self-gratification, this song is notable for its complex orchestration and very sexy vocals.
06. All Through The Night; The least of the 6 songs, this is another ballad, but not terribly distinguished. Wonderful to listen to, though.
This album ranks among my favourites simply because of the sense of FUN Cindy brings to the material and her delivery. Also recommended: Twelve Deadly Cyns: And Then Some, for a hits collection (which also features the incredible "I Drove All Night"). This reissue contains 3 bonus tracks (live), all enjoyable, all not really necessary.
