9. Cyndi Lauper – Detour
Cyndi’s love of music truly shows in her attempts to expand past her quirky pop/dance collections. Detour attempts to channel old-school 50’s & 60’s country through a contemporary filter. While one or two songs don’t quite make the cut (seriously, just skip the horrendously strained attempted humor that is her duet with Vince Gill), the rest more than make up in the pure joy and emotion she pours into the collection.
Favorite songs: “Detour,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” “Heartache by the Numbers”
