Want To Have Fun

I have not had anything I've really wanted to post about for awhile. But I just watched this video of The Killers doing a cover of one of my favorite songs.

The Cyndi Lauper version was released in 1983 which means I would have been two years old. I don't really want to admit that this is one of my favorite songs but it has been a part of my childhood. I remember being very young watching this on TV and loving it.

Then of course there is that fabulous movie that shares the same name that I grew up watching.

And for the last few years it has been one of my nieces Vaeh's favorite songs. Whenever I drive her some place we will listen to it at least a couple times, both of us singing along at the top of our lungs. So for better or worse Girls Just Want to Have Fun would most likely be on my life's soundtrack.
