Listen to Cyndi Lauper's incredible isolated vocals for "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"

In 1983, Cyndi Lauper transformed Robert Hazard's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" into a new wave pop anthem that Gillian G. Gaar described as a "strong feminist statement", an "anthem of female solidarity," and a "playful romp celebrating female camaraderie" in her book She's a Rebel: The History of Women in Rock & Roll (2002). Above, listen to Lauper belt it out in the isolated vocal track from the recording session.

Also worth a listen, the original "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" as sung Hazard.
