Popular Music: The Podcast

Sep 25, 2017

WHEN THE WORK-ING DAY IS DONE, all Steven and Analise want is to discuss Cyndi Lauper’s seminal hit from 1983. Everything about it! From its sneaky chorus (it kind of arrives and leaves out of nowhere!) to the fact that Cyndi didn’t even WANT to sing this song. On this episode of Popular Music: The Podcast, your hosts tell you the story of how she came around and why this song is feminist AF.


No guilt. Only pleasure. Popular Music is a pop music podcast hosted by Steven Ray Morris and Analise Nelson. New episodes every Monday.
