My reaction to "Cidny Bullens" is, it doesn't teach me anything, so I'd rather myself look back to a tomboyish girl from once upon a time, named, Cindy Bullens that teaches me the importance of being a natural woman that she was back then. Thanks to me, who helped CD Baby re-release her first 2 albums, "Desire Wire" and "Steal the Night" in the mp3 format by purchasing a money order, so here is the story:
Cindy Bullens (born Cynthia Bullens March 21, 1955) is an American singer-songwriter who grew up in Massachusetts. Bullens released two albums in the late 1970s on United Artists and Casablanca and another in 1989.
Bullens' 1978 debut album, Desire Wire is described flatly by William Ruhlmann for Allmusic as: "One of the great lost rock albums of the 1970s, Bullens' debut release is full of tough, passionate, incredibly catchy rock & roll played to the hilt and sung with fire". These early albums anticipated later work by a host of 1980s female and female-identified rock artists, from Pat Benatar, to Blondie, to the Go-Go's, to Headpins.
In 1974, Bullens performed background vocals on Gene Clark's album No Other and as one of the Sex-O-Lettes on the debut album by Disco-Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes.
Bullens also served as a backup vocalist on Rod Stewart's Atlantic Crossing and with Elton John on three major tours, as well as his album Blue Moves and his hit with Kiki Dee, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" (both released in 1976).
Bullens provided vocals on three songs ("It's Raining on Prom Night," "Mooning," and "Freddy, My Love") on the soundtrack of the 1977 feature film, Grease. The album release Grease was nominated for the 1979 Grammy Award for "Album of the Year".

In January 1980, Bullens hit the Billboard Hot 100 with the song "Trust Me." It peaked at #90. Bullens withdrew from the music business in the early 1980s to raise a family, returning i
