Cyndi Laupar’s Performance of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” with Arcade Fire Captured on Video

Often, indie rockers Arcade Fire perform the Cyndi Laupar pop classic Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Guess who sang with the band at the New Orleans Jazz Festival? Cyndi Laupar’s Performance of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” with Arcade Fire Captured on Video

Arcade Fire has had a good year, picking up awards and selling records. The band has taken to performing Cyndi Laupars 1983 pop classic Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" as part of their live set. The band recently headlined the New Orleans Jazz Festival, where Bon Jovi, Mumford and Sons, The Strokes, Wilco, and The Decemberists also took to the stage.

The band did not introduce Cyndi Lauper. Lead singer Win Butler simply said: "We'd like to do one of our favourite songs from the '80s". At this point Cyndi Lauper walked on to the stage and started singing. One assumes it was planned.

The performance was captured on film, and a video of it is shown below. Arcade Fire is headlining a show in Londons Hyde Park on the 30th June.
