My buddy Gene got this song in my head, “Time after Time”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_After_Time_(Cyndi_Lauper_song) is one of those modern classics. “Cyndi Lauper”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJ5LmQmQZqg did it in 1984. It has a great pop beat and in the original is just wonderful!
The Wikipedia folks claim it has been ocvered by over 120 different artists. It is one of those songs that works well in lots of different genres. I first heard it years ago as a Shawn Colvin cover (Cover Girl is the best).
Latest version I love is from the Body Acoustic that Cyndi does with “Sarah McLaughlin”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsQYKO01nOQ&feature=related, another favorite of mine. If you can believe it “Martha Stewart”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQyNjN_yKY0&eurl=http://www.nutsie.com/album/Time%20After%20Time:%20The%20Best%20of%20Cyndi%20Lauper/4999323 has her solo acoustic version. It is great!
The “QuietDrive”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BD3fF4nVsU version is great.
