Fans looking to reminisce with 80’s icon Cyndi Lauper and her new CD, The Body Acoustic, may want to consider a digital purchase via iTunes rather than a traditional CD.
Cyndi’s record label, Sony, has a new anti-piracy scheme that has been breached by hackers. The faulty Sony software may prevent you from making copies of your CDs, but it unfortunately also provides a security hole for viruses to enter your computer.
Beyond the issues with Sony’s faulty anti-piracy technology, this album is a fun acoustic makeover of Cyndi’s greatest hits. The album features several guest appearances including Adam Lazzara, Shaggy, Sarah McLachlan, Vivian Green, Ani DiFranco, and Jeff Beck.
Here’s the track listing from The Body Acoustic. Click on the links below to hear 30 second samples of each song from :
01. Money Changes Everything (ft. Adam Lazzara)

Bottom Line: The Body Acoustic is a great album with horrible CD copy-protection software that makes your computer a target for viruses. If the security and integrity of your computer is important to you, then Cyndi Lauper fans may want to purchase this album via iTunes and not from Amazon.com or your local record store.
