For the very first Tuneback Tuesday, here is one of my favourite songs from the ’80s… “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper. As a child of the ’80s, this song was played many times in my house and it has a very special place in my heart.
ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: January 27, 1984
TRIVIA: Written by Cyndi Lauper and Rob Hyman, the inspiration for the song came after both songwriters were going through similar things with their relationships; he was coming out of a long and hard relationship, while she was having a lot of bumps with boyfriend, David Wolff.
The song’s title was inspired when Cyndi was looking in the TV Guide and saw a lot of movie titles, with the 1979 science fiction movie Time After Time being chosen.
See you next Tuesday!!
