Back in the day, who did you prefer? Obviously Madonna won the battle as she's still a major success and Cyndi has been relegated almost to the "where are they now" files.

I was definately on the side of Cyndi Lauper at the time. She had a stronger voice (I still think this is the case), better songs and a more interesting personality. It wasn't really until Like a prayer that I really got into Madonna. And of course around the same time Cyndi released "I drove all night" possibly my favorite of her catalogue.

I prefer Cyndi Lauper, who I actually got to see last year and man, can she hit those high notes (same can not be said of Madonna).

I liked Madonna's first album and a handful of her other stuff but think she's one of those people that each album gets a little worse as they come out. I hate her last few efforts.

Cyndi Lauper, on the other hand , I like most of her stuff.

I think Madonna's music has pretty much sucked (like Prince sorry Prince fans) post 1989. I liked a couple of her songs post 1989, but I think she shoulda hung up her wedding dress and pointy bra long ago. I like Cyndi better..........

P.S. No more movies please Madonna!!!!!!!!!

I heard that Madonna did a 58 page nude spread in some magazine. Yuck! I don't care who you are- at 48 it is time to grow up and become a respectable mother! She's probably had all kinds of lifts and tucks anyway. Any woman who has kids, their boobs are going to sag after awhile, it's just a matter of gravity.
Even Cyndi Lauper dresses more age appropriate now. She's not trying to wear tiny skirts, etc. anymore.

I LOVED Cyndi Lauper in the 80's. The She's so Unusual album was one of my top played albums. I never liked Madonna that much...I think my favorite songs by Madonna were "Crazy for You", and "Live to Tell".

Cyndi-I liked All through the Night and I drove All Night was probably my favorite too...I played it on my cassette player in my 1986 Cavalier when I would drive home on the weekend to see my family...I lived about 2 hours away, but I went home on the weekends as much as possible...and I played that song...and The Eagles cassette with the song "One of these Nights"...I played them all the time. So, every time I hear them...I just remember listening to them in my car...I can picture me wearing a black tank top dress...and my denim Lee jacket and black slip on shoes, and wish I could go back in time and save those clothes.

It is cool how music connects you to memories.

Too tough to call for me I really liked Madonna's first couple albums and I really liked Cyndi Laupers first two albums as well. After that can't say I've liked much by either.

Now if we're talking about the two of them facing off in a knife fight or something I'm pretty sure Madonna would win.

I always liked Lauper better, but my older sister liked Madonna better.

I remember telling her one time back in the day that Madonna would never last and Cyndi was much better at singing and had the whole package.

I guess I was wrong about Madonna's longevity, but Cydi is still out there too, and she doesn;t have to dress like a nun or sacrafice herself to get attention.

I thought they were both neck and neck by 84-85, but I guess Madonna had a bit more pull in the industry and pushed the envelope more for the rest of the 80's. I liked Cyndi's I drove all night in the late 80's, but she couldn't compete hit wise with the Like a Prayer Madonna.

Cyndi for me...her "She's So Unusual" album is one of my all time favs...I remember getting the cassette tape for Easter. I agree with Motley....don't like much of Madonna's stuff after "Like A Prayer", with a few exceptions. Cyndi is the 80's Queen to me.....though in 84'...I would have rather kissed Madonna...though would pass on a kiss now!

It's easily gonna have to be Cyndi Lauper for me as well. Aside from a very small handful of Madonna songs that I think are OK, I've never really been a fan of hers. I've only ever bought 1 Madonna record. That was "Ray of Light." But I only bought that record because William Orbit did all the music arrangements on it, and I'm a big Orbit Fan.

And also, I don't think it takes a genius to see who's the better actress.
