Poor Cyndi, she'll always be remembered for that song where girls want to have fun, and she didn't even write it. Sad? Not really, she still rakes in the big bucks. But this little song was her crowning jewel, and showed that she just might be a real artist after all... those thoughts quickly faded though. And even though that song is considered underrated, it's been covered this way and that way, from Spoken to Rob Thomas, to a plethora of other artists. However, while all great, none of them take it to this level. Nope, Quietdrive hit gold here. What sad is the fact that this is their biggest song, and they didn't even write it. Ironic, no?

The first thing that grabs me is the modern feel they add to the song, more pop/punk ballad, just more updatedness. Then the lyrics will grab you, with those appropriate vocals that don't over do it, but don't under do it either. It's just perfect here. Then the chorus really takes off into a total emotional experience, making the song the band's own, and taking it to new heights.

The picture I get in my mind when I think of this song, is two lovers holding hands, trying to hang on while on a spinning carousel. Pretty cool image, but that's what this song conveys. The joy and wonderfulness of love a such a great emotional level.

Then the part right after the 2nd chorus just comes to an emotional climax, and if that couldn't get any better, it unleashes it all in the 3rd round of choruses. Pretty awesome and well-done to say the least. Although it probably ends too fast. They could have gone about 30-seconds longer.

So overall, Quietdrive really puts their heart into this underrated pop/punk ballad that works in amazing ways to say the least. I just loved hearing it on its few short months on radio. And I'll probably never forget it. It's a wonderful song, and if you loved the original, you should probably check this out.

Great song, but buying this from Amazon was a lot of hassle.

For whatever reason, the shopping cart for mp3's works differently than for normal items. I attempted to Check Out this one simple song, was met with headaches. Tried Firefox, Chrome, countless re-entering of the URL, nothing seemed to work until about an hour later when I came back to try again. The funny thing is, the website literally wouldn't let me pay for the song. There was no option to enter a card of any kind, no option to pay, therefore, no song.

If I hadn't been preoccupied I probably would have just bought this song off of iTunes instead. Hopefully others will enjoy the song as I do, the song itself is 5 stars.

"Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper has been a perennial favourite of mine since it came out. I started collecting some covers of this song for a time, the first being the seminal Tuck & Patty version. Then I found the Miles Davis versions. This cover has been around for a while, but it just recently came to my attention, and OH WOW is it good. These guys rock this song all over the place, taking it from a poppy ballad to a power anthem. If you like this song, this cover won't let you down.

But I never buy music that I don't like. Good Song! I hate that Amazon gives a minimum number of words for a review esp. with mp3 purchases. The star rating should already be enough. Like any art, music is so subjective that no matter how good my review will be if other people don't like the song then they will never buy it.

I love this remake of the Cyndi Lauper classic hit. This is one of the few cover songs I like enough to buy and listen to many times. I enjoyed it when it was released, and I still like it. Time After Time is one of my favorite songs, and Cyndi's version is best, but this is one of the few covers I've liked.

Quietdrive is a local Minneapolis band that plays rock and alternative music. I saw them when they opened for Daughtry this past summer and they gave a very solid performance. I like this re-make better than the original version.

Different enough to not just be an imitation, but with all the emotion and feeling of the original. No surprise considering Cyndi helped them rewrite it!
