When I was a kid, I remember my mom swooning over UK rock god Rod Stewart performing on a late-night talk show. Now I understand why. Since the 1960s, this man has been recklessly touring in some shape or form, including fronting Faces and drumming up hits that steal your heart (“Maggie May”) or bring out your secret wild side (“Da Ya Think I’m Sexy”). Speaking of wild, Cyndi Lauper has been rebelling since 1983’s She’s So Unusual. In our current political climate, belting Lauper’s anthemic “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” feels like the perfect release.
