This song, in which Lauper talks about how folks hold others to a different set of values than their own, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
Lauper wrote and produced this together with New York City DJ Rich Morel. The duo also collaborated together on "Raging Storm" on the Bring Ya to the Brink album.
There is also a 'dirty version' of this tune, which is known as "Same Ol' F—-ing Story." Lauper told the Sunday Times July 20,2008: "My son said to me recently, 'If you want to be successful, you need to keep the cursing in your lyrics. This stuff sells.'"
Lauper (From The Sun July 25,2008): "In Same Ol' Story, I hit this really high note which is my own little tribute to Sylvester and how he used to deliver the peak of a dance track."
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
