After listening to kenneth-in-the-212‘s posting of Robert Hazard’s version of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” (which I loved), I’m in inspired to share one of my favorite recordings of the Cyndi Lauper classic.
I love when folks speed up or slow down a well-known track and the reinvention reveals a whole new flavor to the tune.
I found Greg Laswell’s melancholy cover of GJWTHF refreshing in it’s reflective, pensive approach.
It always slows me down and makes me think.
Listen below. Check out more from Laswell on iTunes.
