Blue Angel (band)Blue Angel
was the name of the band
(and debut album
) that featured a pre-fame Cyndi Lauper
. They were popular on the New York rockabilly
scene, and performed typical late 1970
's style cover versions of pop standards (most notably a rendition of Mann/Weill's "I'm Gonna Be Strong", which Lauper would later re-record as a solo artist). The band's album
did moderately well, and helped to launch lead singer Lauper into superstardom.
