That’s via the Wall Street Journal, who also talked to Lauper about her upcoming country album, Detour. She explained she’s always loved the song. “In the ‘80s, when I was famous, I wasn’t able to go out much,” she said, adding:

“I didn’t want to live with the whole bodyguard thing. I hate that. At that point in my life, I just stayed in and my friend worked at MCA and sent me all these Patsy Cline tapes. That was like my best friend and I sang and sang with her.”
