Soundtracks: The Goonies
At my last job, I had a radio at my desk. One day a Cyndi Lauper came on. It was "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," and I was humming along to it like I usually do whenever I hear one of her songs. This girl next to me, who was about 10-12 years younger, looks at me funny and says something like, "I can't believe you like this song" as if liking a song like this somehow puts my masculinity in question. I tell her I have Cyndi Lauper's first two albums - as in vinyl, as in, I bought them when they first came out. She kinda shrugged and dropped the matter.
Cyndi Lauper, "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough"
