True Colors, usually attributed to Cyndi Lauper, was actually written by Billy Steinberg, who initially conceived it as a ballad to devote to his mother. Tom Kelly advised him to change the first stanza, to make the song more salable in the international music scene, and together they proposed their song to the American singer Cyndi Lauper, who agreed to interpret it, provided that he could completely modify the arrangement. The original score was in fact in the form of a gospel ballad with accompaniment to the piano.

A too traditional choice for Cyndi, who submitted her new version to Billy and Tom, getting their enthusiastic consent. Thus, in 1986, it was born True Colors, one of the most important songs of the pop artist. This single force on the text and trust that convey the words, so much to be interpreted by various international artists such as Phil Collins and Lily Juniper.


True Colors, solitamente attribuita a Cyndi Lauper, è stata scritta in realtà da Billy Steinberg, che la concepì inizialmente come una ballata da dedicare a sua madre. Tom Kelly gli consigliò di modificare la prima strofa, per rendere il brano più vendibile nel panorama musicale internazionale e insieme proposero la loro canzone alla cantante statunitense Cyndi Lauper, che accettò di interpretarla, a patto che ne potesse modificare del tutto l’arrangiamento. Lo spartito originale si presentava infatti in forma di ballata gospel con accompagnamento al pianoforte.

Una scelta troppo tradizionale per Cyndi, la quale sottopose a Billy e Tom la sua nuova versione, ottenendo il loro consenso entusiasta. Nasce così, nel 1986, True Colors, una tra le canzoni più importanti dell’artista pop. Questo singolo fa forza sul testo e sulla fiducia che trasmettono le parole, tanto da essere interpretato anche da svariati artisti internazionali come Phil Collins e non ultima Lily Juniper.
