In 1985, Cyndi Lauper’s song The Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough peaked at number ten on the Hot 100 chart. At the time, it was her fifth top ten on the Hot 100 chart. The music video was actually shot in two parts and featured WWF wrestlers Captain Lou Albano, Roddy Piper, Wendi Richter, The Fabulous Moolah, The Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Freddie Blassie and André the Giant (part 2 only). The video also featured the cast of The Goonies minus Kerri Green, Anne Ramsey, Joe Pantoliano, Robert Davi and John Matuszak as well as members of a then relatively unknown group called The Bangles.
