Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos ask 'Why Don't You Love Me' in their new duet - listen now!

In this post-"homosexual Ricky Martin"-world we're really not sure which way is up anymore.  The news was SUCH A SHOCK, however, that on the plus side it blunted the surprise when we heard about this ....odd pairing: 

Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos were bound to do a duet together at some point because they are such a natural fit, both personality-wise and musically.  For all you ESL students out there, that is sarcasm.  All kidding aside, though, their voices actually work really well and the song is a little bit rad.

Cyndi has been doing a lot of not-musical stuff lately, teaming up with Lady Gaga to warn women of the dangers of HIV/AIDS and such.  Tori Amos, meanwhile, has just been getting weirder since we lost interest after 'Spark' so we can't really say what she's been up to.  It's not important. 

What is important is that the song comes from the forthcoming FATBOY SLIM/DAVID BYRNE CONCEPT ALBUM ABOUT IMELDA MARCOS.  If that sentence didn't send shivers down your pop-spine then we have nothing left to say to you.  Because I think we all know it is going to be AMAZING.

Out April 6 on Nonesuch Records
