Tuesday Tunes: Cyndi Lauper & The Brighton Port Authority genre: Tuned Out

The following videos are unrelated except for the fact that I've posted them together. The first video is Into The Nightlife, a new offering by Cyndi Lauper from her latest CD, Bring Ya To The Brink. Lauper doesn't get a lot of mainstream attention but this song is worthy of it. I have no doubt that it will be a big hit in dance clubs. The album is somewhat of a deviation for Lauper in that it is primarily dance tunes. I think this is a good move for Lauper and I hope it brings her some of the recognition she deserves.

The second video is from The Brighton Port Authority (Latest project of Fat Boy Slim) and is titled Toe Jam. In a strange combination, David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal are the featured vocals. All that aside, what makes this video noteworthy is its creativity. OK, there's nothing original about naked people...but if you can break away from watching the booties and boobies and pay attention to the black censor bars and the patterns they create you'll see the unfolding of the originality of this video.
