Forever a fantastic album

…was being released in these very days exactly thirty years ago. I gifted a good friend for Christmas with this album, and later he told me he was not confident in the beginning, but he had to admit it was one of the best albums he had ever listened to.

Cyndi Lauper – Time after time

“Time after time” is the perfect song for blue moods. And actually in 1984 we really had some good times, even when the mood was blue! Just like those days when you are back from holiday and school or work is coming to grab you.
