Not exactly Cyndi Lauper.

Ok. This isn’t the upbeat song you might want to hear on labor day, but I can’t seem to get it out of my head. This song, a cover of Lauper’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, was featured in My Sister’s Keeper, a less than upbeat movie, if you plan on watching it anytime soon I suggest you don’t do it alone, in an area with sharp objects or without a giant box of kleenex.

Greg Laswell’s scratchy, soulful voice brings a sense of melancholy and longing to this party girl classic. It’s a beautiful song and while it’s no Cyndi Lauper, Laswell knows how to sing a ballad, Jeff Buckley style.
