Cyndi Lauper has had her fun. Now she's singing the blues. On her latest disc, Memphis Blues, (No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart for four straight weeks), the '80s pop icon trades slumber party pop shenanigans for sultry blues songs. She plays Ruth Eckerd Hall at 8 p.m. Wednesday ($39.50-$69.50, (727) 791-7400). Our Stuck in the '80s boys caught up with Cyndi a few weeks before her Florida visit and chatted about the new album, her social causes and that unexpected appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. Listen to their interview at tampabay.com/blogs/80s.
