  1. I never found my way into 80s music, except for The Traveling Wilburys, but I did like Cyndi Lauper. Unique voice and stylist. True Colors and Time After Time are great tunes. She is still quite good-looking for her age, while the rest are a bit haggard. She makes nice commercials. How about Pat Benatar? Good stuff as always.
