Song Lauper? I Hardly Knew ‘Er!

Copy, Right? put a bunch of cover songs up on their blog, as they often do. There’s a steel drum cover of Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” that does absolutely nothing for me, and there’s a ukelele cover of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” by Jake Shimabukuru that kind of rocks.
And there are two covers of songs popularly associated with Cyndi Lauper. One is a cover of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by some guy that really doesn’t justify its own existence. The other is a cover of “Money Changes Everything” by Partisan. It starts out about one cowbell short of just being noise, but it turns into something else. Something that I love. Something wonderful. And then it kind of loses itself toward the end. But it really works for about a minute and fifteen seconds, and that’s a hell of a lot longer than most songs can manage.
