Tegan and Sara's 25 Favorite Albums

Cyndi Lauper She's So Unusual (1983)

Tegan: "We were a Cyndi Lauper household. I feel like some people were either into Cyndi or they were into Madonna. Of course some people loved both. But in our household it was just Cyndi. My mom had a blue Aerostar minivan and we used to be in it a lot (single parent, going back to school, day care, school, piano lessons etc) and we used to listen to She's So Unusual at top level a lot.

"I can still close my eyes and remember the feeling of fabric of the front seat and the smoothness of the volume dial of the cassette deck. Stand out track: "Time After Time." Great song. Simple yet multi-layered lyrics. Great arrangement. Sparse production. Definitely influenced us as writers."
