Request: Cyndi Lauper

Postby Fred Taghon » Sat Aug 09, 2014 8:27 am

Can anyone help me out with a (somewhat) rare Cyndi Lauper track?

I'm looking for the Phil Thornalley 1987 remix of "Maybe He'll Know" (timings may very from 3:41-3:47). The original version is on the 1986 album "True Colors". I have that. This particular remix was released commercially on CD in 1988 as a bonus track on the "Hole In My Heart" CD-Single in some territories, and as a bonus track again in 1989 on some of the "I Drove All Night" CD-Singles. Basically, if you have a CD-Single of "Hole In My Heart" or "I Drove All Night" that features "Maybe He'll Know", then it's the version I am looking for!

I would love the full CD-Single if possible, but would certainly be content with just the "Maybe He'll Know" track. And if I can be so picky, if at all possible, I would prefer it in FLAC format or an MP3 @320kps. Thank you for any help you can offer with this request!

These are the CD-Singles that this track is featured on:

I'm sure I have this on a back-up disc, but gave it a d/l, just in case. Thanks, eighties!

I know the album version featured Billy Joel on background vocals. With this Phil Thornalley Remix, it still sounds like BJ, but sounds a bit different. This is the same remix on the flip of "I Drove All Night," if I am correct.
Since BJ contributed vocals for this track on her True Colors album, Cyndi returned the favor and provided backing vocals on BJ's The Bridge track, "Code Of Silence."

There's quite a few alternate/remixed versions of Cyndi's singles that have yet to see the light of day on CD. One other from True Colors, is another Phil Thornalley (with Alex Sadkin) remix...

Thank you very much for sharing this!!

The 7" remix of "Boy Blue" is excellent - it was one of my favorite tracks from "True Colors" and I couldn't believe it flopped. That one would be awesome to get on CD finally.

I bought the Lauper 3cd collection "36 All-time Favorites" which for the most part features her big hits and tons of album tracks, BUT it does include: "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough" and "Hole In My Heart", along with these B-side tracks which I've not seen anywhere else on CD: "Right Track Wrong Train" (1983), "What A Thrill" (1985), "Heading For The Moon" (1986) and "Unabbreviated Love" (1989). They are definitely from original master tapes and sound amazing.

I believe the 7" Mix of Boy Blue can be found on this CD, unfortunately it's super rare!!

Lol thanks for the info - It's almost more discouraging knowing it's been on ONE promo CD from 1987 and hasn't surfaced anywhere else in the last 27yrs hehehe! So it's not likely that it will any time soon. Especially after the two "She's So Unusual" re-issues (2000 and 2013) really left me scratching my head in regards to bonus tracks.

Hello, I know this post is 2 years ago but is there a way to update the MEGA link for Cyndi Lauper's Hole In My Heart Dutch CD single? Thanks in advance.

There is a music blog called "Burning the Ground" and it is one of the best i've come across. He posts vinyl but they all sound amazing. Here is a link where you can find your song... http://burningtheground.net/category/cyndi-lauper/
