A Night to Remember
(1989)

A Night to Remember is the name of popular 1980s icon and singer Cyndi Lauper's third album (as well as a song on the album). The album did not do as well as her previous albums, selling less than a million copies. Lauper toned down both her girlish sound and her friendly punk look for the album, and as it was released in 1989 when grunge rock music was becoming popular, it stalled and eventually bombed. It is currently the only album of her catalogue that is out of print. The album was originally conceptualized as a project called "Kindred Spirit" and was going to be released with the track "Hole in My Heart (All the Way to China)", but when that song (and the film "Vibes") were unsuccesful it was repackaged. Some proof sheets of the original album artwork exist with the alternate title and track listing.
