I will never forget my first concert. It was the summer of 1984. My dad dropped me off at the entrance and I quickly found my friends. It was an outdoor concert so we were able to get close to the stage while we eagerly waited for her to make an entrance.
Cyndi Lauper, with her crazy hair and funky outfit, finally came out. I remember screaming like the girls who now scream for The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus. After the concert, I could barely talk after singing along to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, She Bop, Money Changes Everything and all the rest.
Now, when I hear Cyndi Lauper on the radio, it brings back such great memories of that summer in 1984 when I got to see my teen idol in concert.
