Hard to believe, but on April 12, 1985, the teen flick Girls Just Want to Have Fun first hit theaters. Skip past the part where this 30th anniversary makes you feel old, and instead reflect on the fact that this film holds up remarkably well today.

It was showdown at the Times Square Corral Sunday night.
This year's 67th annual Tony Awards race boiled down to a hotly contested duel between a homegrown musical about thigh-high footwear, Kinky Boots, and a British import about a contemporary little girl's Dickensian life, Matilda.
When the smoke cleared, Broadway's big winner was Kinky Boots, which, besides being named best musical of the season, took home a total of six awards, including one for best leading actor in a musical Billy Porter – whose jet-propelled acceptance speech left the crowd touched and breathless.

Cyndi Lauper has plenty to celebrate – and she's not doing it alone.
Not only is the singer-songwriter Tony-nominated for her critically acclaimed score to the best-musical contender Kinky Boots, but she's also marking the 30th anniversary of the monster hit that first put her on the map, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," which she released in 1983.
To celebrate? She was totally surprised by the Kinky Boots ensemble. After quietly securing permission from Lauper's manager and her record company, Sony Music, they assembled this performance music video (see below) of Lauper's signature number.
"It's so sweet, I'm crying," Lauper, 59, during a quick break from rehearsal Monday, told PEOPLE of her reaction to what was done – and about those who participated. She first saw the video Sunday night, before it was posted to YouTube.

Robin Roberts's fans always worry about her when she's off-screen too long (just check out her Twitter), but the Good Morning America anchor says people needn't be concerned.
"I feel great. I feel the best I've felt in a long time – and I mean that sincerely," Roberts told PEOPLE Monday at the 12th Annual Women Who Care Luncheon benefiting United Cerebral Palsy of New York City.
Roberts, rocking tight black leather pants and spiked heels at the luncheon to celebrate women's accomplishments, took Thursday and Friday off last week on the heels of a brief hospitalization in April. But taking care of herself has worked wonders, she says.
