The Killers - Girls Just Want to Have Fun

The Killers perform an interesting but stirring rendition of Cyndi Lauper's timeless tune from 1983, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" was the first single from Cyndi's debut album: She's So Unusual. The track was a world-wide smash hit and is a feminist anthem to this day.

Feminist anthem or not, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" sounds perfectly in place with The Killers and perhaps it should have been included on Day & Age. I knew they did a lot of 80's listening as inspiration for that album.

The Killers do it up in style as a bonus tune for fortunate concertgoers making their way out to the shows in this economy.

 

Get Cyndi Lauper's version on iTunes.

"Girls Just Want to Have Fun" - Lyrics

 

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we're not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have -

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls - they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun,
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun....
