Cyndi Lauper and Fast Pitch Softball
There is so much to love in Cyndi's mid-eighties live version of All Through the Night.
I almost cry every time she hits the line about stray cats, but that sentiment is quickly overshadowed by the fast pitch softball move at the 2 minute mark....and then the praying-mantis-inspired dance sequence at 2:16.
...And - it must be mentioned - the appearance of the Little Richard/Carmen Miranda hybrid at 3:49.
Even with the crazy eyes, I think her performance is ridiculously wonderful, and Cyndi clearly rocks with her support of the LGBT community. My love for her endures, even if it means I have to overlook her involvement in reality television.
