Let's Make Mixtapes

Keeping your childhood pop icons alive…even the ones you thought were dead.

She released her first album, She’s So Unusual, on October 14, 1983, and almost 34 years later, in 2016, she released her 11th studio album.

And while we could all rattle off songs by Cyndi and other superstars, there are those songs that were either released but failed to chart, or were never released (even though us superfans know it would have been in a hit.)
