Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper (1984)
The perfect pop song from the most amazing voice to come out of the 80's. Written late at night after a recording session with a member of the Hooters, Lauper gave us the ultimate lighter ballad, and my favorite song to ever hit number 1 on the Billboard charts. As underrated as she has become, Cyndi deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame for this performance alone.....AND THOSE LYRICS!!! Poetry with a Day-Glo sheen never sounded so good!
Covers abound, but these are my three favorites.
