HOLE IN MY HEART ~ CYNDI LAUPER
"Hole in My Heart (All the Way to China)" is a song recorded by pop singer Cyndi Lauper for her 1988 film Vibes. It was written by Richard Orange, formerly of the band Zider Zee. The single was released in 1988 as a track from her first starring-role film, Vibes, co-starring Jeff Goldblum. The song failed to find an audience. The song is considered, among Lauper fans, a rarity and only appeared as a single in various formats including a 3" CD single in Japan. Lauper was also getting ready to release an album later that year called "Kindred Spirit" but the release was canceled, most likely due to the backlash of this release. Later on when Lauper released the album, now titled A Night To Remember, the track was not included on most formats of the album. It was only included on the Japanese edition as a bonus track and on the Japanese edition of Twelve Deadly Cyns...and Then Some. The song can also be found on the fan-acclaimed bootleg, Backsided, which was a fan-made project created to get rare Cyndi tracks into the CD player. The track finally saw the light of day on an official CD, as of 2003, with the release of the 3-CD compilation, The Great Cyndi Lauper.
