Think eighties and you might be struck by fears of perms and shoulder pads, of Madonna in netting, of Michael Jackson’s one white glove, but you know what? The eighties produced some quality! Time after Time is one of those songs that you used to love and haven’t heard in so long. From Cyndi Lauper’s second album ‘She’s So Unusual’, you could use the original, but have a listen to the newer version, recorded in 2005 with Sarah McLachlan on Cyndi’s album ‘The Body Acoustic’, and also the beautiful Eva Cassidy version.
If it takes you back to the slow dance at school discos, revel in the fact that you’re all grown up now, that your dress sense has improved and that your life is definitely a little less ‘The Wedding Singer’ and a bit more ‘Breakfast at Tiffanies’.
