Trivia / Cyndi Lauper

  • Creator Backlash: Lauper had such an unpleasant experience producing "Goonies 'r' Good Enough," first being forced to tack the title of the movie it was made for onto the title for publicity and then having Creative Differences with Richard Donner for the music video, that she grew to loath the song. It didn't appear on her compilations until 2003 and she didn't perform it live until a year later. She eventually warmed up to it when she was asked to record a parody of it for the Bob's Burgers episode, "The Belchies."
  • LGBT Fanbase: Thanks to her tireless work for LGBT rights, her colorful image, and songs like "True Colors", she's a huge gay icon and regularly shows up at LGBT events as support.
  • Old Shame: She's not too fond of her third album, 1989's "A Night to Remember" which she prefers to call "A Night to Forget" due to the album selling poorly, as well as drama involving her boyfriend David Wolf and the disassociation with the overall album production.
  • Romance on the Set: Cyndi Lauper dated Hulk Hogan during her stint with the WWF. However, in this clip, Hogan seems to suggest that he physically abused Lauper.
  • So My Kids Can Watch: Lauper's son is a huge Bob's Burgers fan and and it was he who convinced her to record the "Good Enough" parody "Taffy Butt" for the show's season 2 premiere, a Whole Plot Reference to The Goonies.
