Mundane Monday Morning Music: Cyndi Lauper – "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"

Hey Readers!

I know, I’ve been away too long! The holidays, then the start of the New Year have really disoriented me, and, unfortunately, this feature became neglected the chaos. Thankfully, I carved out some time this morning to get back on devout some time to posting a new song to start off the year right.

Some of my fellow bloggers have posed the question, “What word would you use to describe your year?” After a bit of thought and an impromptu family dance session with my family last night of 80s music, I came up with my word of 2016. It is fun. Whether it be in learning, becoming more successful or getting out more, I want to have fun doing it. Besides, what’s the point of living without enjoying the journey you’re on?

Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” encompasses my sense of fun and is such an amazing song to use to start off 2016 for this feature! Besides its unforgettable beat, the lyrics are all about girl empowerment. Lauper is encouraging her parents to not treat her differently because she is a girl. She is also saying that girls should not shy away from their greatness and should be allowed to shine.

So I have decided to take a page from Cyndi Lauper’s playbook this year and have fun, no matter what I’m doing and to make me a better me this year! I hope that “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”has inspired you to be your best you, to have fun, and to take the blahs away on this mundane Monday morning.

Do you have a word that would describe how you want to live this year, or your life?

Until my next post, Readers!

Reese

    I’ve always loved this song and both my girls love it now too! I have it on a CD in the car and they request it pretty often. Of course they refer to it as the “Princesses want to have fun” song because Barbie co-opted it for one of her movies 🙂

      Thanks Louise! I wish I had a copy of this song. It was all thanks to YouTube that I am able to continue to listen to some amazing music. I’m so happy your little ladies enjoy this song, too, no matter what version ot may be!

        Okay, now if I remember before BConnected, I’ll see if I can “make a CD for you”. People still do that, right? 🙂
