REQUEST

“Change of Heart” is the second single released by Cyndi Lauper from her second album, True Colors in 1986. The single went gold in the US and peaked at #3 in the Billboard Hot 100. The song has become a fan favorite and Lauper still often performs it. Lauper re-recorded it acoustically, and her official site later made it available free as a digital download.

A music video was filmed in Trafalgar Square in London. It features Lauper and her band performing the song in front of a large group of people.

The song also features The Bangles on backing vocals on the original version.

    Fantastic post, DJ Paul T! This as well as “What’s Going On” were my favorite singles off of True Colors? Great mixes! Thanks for sharing!

    Do you have the US 12″ for What’s Going On as well? 😉

    her first two albums are such gems! and those singles off them..phew!
    Shame no extended for True Colors, and What’s Goin’ On should at least be a Top Tenner, and Boy Blue should’ve been a hit!

    I really like all those B side instrumentals & dubs. I rediscovered many tracks listening singles here. Thanks Paul.

    I forgot to say that song, witness, has a sound very similar to a Brazilian beat.

    This is a great example of what I like about this blog. Although remixes have been put out on cd format, it’s the dubs, instrumentals, and extra beats that I miss. Thanks for putting all the tracks on digital format.

    I can’t agree more. “Boy Blue” should’ve been a huge hit. There is a magnificent live version of it from the “Live in Paris” show that ended up on the Japanese “Hole In My Heart (All The Way To China)” CD single.

    Long long time ago I did my own 12″ version taking large parts from the great instrumental version and edited it with the parts of the vocal version, leaving out those terrible 80’s voice samples. Yeap, I made the definitive Shep Pettibone remix version. Great to have a decent rip of the instrumental version, Paul. The vocal version has been issued on the 1989 Japanese 6-track remix compliation: The Best Remixes, also featuring Girls Just Want To Have Fun (Extended Version), She Bop (Special Dance Mix), Good Enough (Dance Remix), Money Changes Everything (Extended Live Version) and What’s Going On (Club Version). The B-side of the 12″ What’s Going On featured the Long Version. This one has been released on the 2005 Hey now! Remixes & Rarities CD.

    Paul,

    Can’t believe I missed this one before the format change. It’s Definitely my favorite Cyndi Lauper song. Could you re-up it when you get a chance. please?

    Thanks.
