"Twelve Deadly Cyns...and Then Some" is musician Cyndi Lauper's greatest hits CD, released in 1994.

Album information

It was released with similar packaging but varying track listings based on which songs charted in various parts of the world. Its greatest sales success was in Japan where it went 5x Platinum. Its greatest chart success was in the United Kingdom where it reached #2 on the charts spending almost nine months on chart, eventually going double platinum selling almost 600,000 copies. In the USA it reached gold status. The album would go on to sell over 6 million copies worldwide.

In the United States the album has 14 tracks. 11 are previously released hits; "I'm Gonna be Strong" is a Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil track Lauper re-recorded, having previously performed it on her debut album "Blue Angel". "Hey Now (Girls Just Want to Have Fun") is a re-recording of one of her biggest hits; it has been completely reworked to incorporate a reggae feel. A music video featuring drag queens was shot to accompany this single and it aired heavily on television. The track "Come On Home" was also new; two versions were recorded, one running 4:33 (The US Version) and one running 4:36 (The International Version). Internationally the album has 16 tracks (17 in Japan).

There was some issue with the division of royalties due to the wide array of co-writers on the various tracks that prevented Lauper from releasing the longer version in the United States. Conceptually the album was originally called "13 Deadly Cyns" and in fact a promotional cassette with this title (and an alternate track listing) was pressed and distributed in the United Kingdom in June of 1992.
