The girl who just wanted to have fun has matured into a sensitive interpreter of eclectic standards on Cyndi Lauper's latest release At Last, which provides the basis for this summer's concert tour, which makes a stop at the Hult Center on July 16th as the first offering of OFAM's 2004-05 Now Hear This series. On At Last, Lauper applies her formidable pipes to an eclectic collection of covers that range from a few Edith Piaf tunes ("La Vie En Rose" and "Hymn to Love") to classics from the songbooks of Bacharach/David, Etta James, and Smokey Robinson. Piano and subtle orchestrations add tension to sensitive readings of "Unchained Melody," "Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood," and an eerily somber "Walk on By." The effect is haunting and intimate. As its title infers, At Last finally shows her true colors. On July 16th expect plenty from the new album with a healthy dose of her most cherished hits, including "Time After Time", "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", "She Bop" and, of course, "True Colors".
