Late Night FDL: All Through The Night
Congrats to Cyndi, Sir Van, and the other honorees…
Cyndi Lauper, Van Morrison and Lady Gaga have all been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The stars received their honours at a three-hour ceremony in New York, and many expressed surprise in their acceptance speeches.
“I still can’t believe I make a living making music,” said Lauper. “I’m blown away.”
The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, was also inducted posthumously alongside the band’s lyricist Robert Hunter.
Country artists Toby Keith, who has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, and Bobby Braddock, who wrote Tammy Wynette’s DIVORCE, were also honoured.
And “poet laureate of the blues” Willie Dixon, who died in 1992, was cited for songs including Hoochie Coochie Man, I Just Want to Make Love to You and You Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover.
What’s on your mind tonite…?
