Cyndi Lauper presents her first-ever Christmas album, Merry Christmas…Have A Nice Life. This great holiday album went on sale Today!
The album includes the classics “Silent Night” and “Rocking Around The Christmas Tree” plus some of the fun music that fans expect from Cyndi, including “Christmas Conga” and “Minnie And Santa.” Eight of the songs were written or co-written by Cyndi herself.
Although Cyndi Lauper officially began to work on her new holiday disc over the last year, it’s really been a lifetime in the making. Merry Christmas…Have A Nice Life is packed with the emotions of more than just one season: warmth, humor, melancholy, passion, remembrances of things past, hopes for the future, and, of course, a conga line.
Merry Christmas…Have A Nice Life is sure to be a Christmas classic for years to come.
