Leave it to Cyndi Lauper to record a Christmas album that’s upbeat without being sappy! Honestly, the stories that surround the making of this 1998 record are enough to put you in the Christmas spirit. Like the fact that she recorded it at her home while her infant son Declyn slept (he can be heard giggling and burbling on “New Year’s Baby [First Lullaby]”). And that she taped her vocals inside her cedar closet because she liked the reverb sound. In short: no spoiled superstar or commercial cash-in here! Just a fresh, homespun take on a time-honored tradition, brought to you by a performer whose work in music, theater, and advocacy continues to inspire. Cyndi brings her trademark sass to songs like “Christmas Conga” and the bawdy “Minnie and Santa” among the eight original tunes on the record. But the traditional tunes “Three Ships” and “Silent Night” radiate a reverent, gather-‘round-the-fireplace vibe that’ll warm the cockles of even the most hidebound holiday music devotee. For the vinyl debut of Merry Christmas…Have a Nice Life!, we’ve pressed up 1000 copies in green vinyl and put ‘em inside a beautiful gatefold cover featuring lyrics.
