CYNDI LAUPER - THE GOONIES 'R' GOOD ENOUGH 45
Vintage, Japanese edition, 45 rpm record from 1985.
"The Goonies 'R' Good Enough" was released by Cyndi Lauper on June 6, 1985 as a single for film The Goonies.
Before 2003, the song never appeared on any of Lauper's album.
Steven Spielberg had made Cyndi the musical director for The Goonies soundtrack. She sought out new bands to be included on the project including her friends, The Bangles.
The official title of the song is just "Good Enough", as is the way Cyndi had titled it when it was written and the way she announced it at concerts. She never said the 'new' title, "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough", at any concert. It was changed, only in name, because Warner Brothers insisted that the marketing pointed towards the film and that is when "The Goonies 'R'" was tacked on to the title of the song.
Cyndi refused to play the song live after 1987. She finally incorporated it back into her live show during several dates in Australia in 2004. Fans kept requesting the song and Cyndi eventually sang the first verse and chorus a cappella. She has since incorporated the song back into her live set, due to overwhelming fan recognition.
