Cyndi Lauper song - Water's Edge - While playing to a sold-out Capitol Theater on Oct 29, 2013 Cyndi Lauper told the audience that she started
writing the song "Water's Edge," from 2002's "Shine," while staying at Madison's Edgewater Hotel.
She was on tour with Cher at the time, and she penned the plaintive tune while looking out at Lake Mendota late one afternoon.
