5. MUSIC: Cyndi Lauper, She's So Unusual: A 30th Anninversary Celebration
One of the most defining records of the late 20th century turns 30 this year. In honor of the anniversary of Cyndi Lauper's She's So Unusual, the album is getting remastered and re-released, with a two-CD deluxe edition featuring the original album, rare demos, a live concert recording, and remixes. The debut album of Lauper, a long-time LGBT rights activist, contained time-tested hits like "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," Money Changes Everthing," "She Bop," "Time After Time," and "When You Were Mine," a Prince cover where none of the pronouns were changed, insinuating Lauper's lover left her for a man. It's impossible not to love this reggae-infused girl power collection or the indelible personality who created it. –Neal Broverman
