STRFKR – Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (Cyndi Lauper Cover)

There’s not much to say about these guys, they’re from Portland, Oregon and they make extremely feel good infectious indie-pop. They blew up after a local ad agency used their song Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second for a Target commercial and it’s been uphill since. The song was recently used by White Panda in a mash-up of Dr. Dre’s The Next Episode if you were wondering where that was from. STRFKR’s latest effort is impressive as they’ve made one of pop’s biggest girl anthems sound straight out of the underground. I like songs that tell the truth and as simple as Cyndie’s songs may seem that’s exactly what they do. For any guys that can’t figure out why their girlfriends are mad at them listen to the lyrics in this song, apply it to your situation and you’ll probably end up with a pretty accurate answer, try it…

I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – Morpheus

Any song that touches on the concept of independence and free spirit is very dear to me. In this song Cyndie talks about her parents putting pressure on her and about being in relationships with guys that try to keep her away from the world. Respecting peoples time, their space and freedom to live how they want is something we should all be aware of.

One life to live notice you get no sequel, so I truly got to live this like my last movie…” Jay-Z (Hola’ Hovit0)

Anyways, these guys have a great sound, their consistency never ceases to impress and they get one of the tightest and cleanest guitar sounds I’ve heard in a while, enjoy.

I want to be the one to walk in the sun…
