"Sisters of Avalon" is a single from the 1997 album of the same name, by American singer Cyndi Lauper.

Song information[edit]

The song is about sisterhood and it shows the power of women Lauper wanted to show through the song and the album as a whole. As a result of the song, Lauper wanted to work with female writers and producers during a lot of the making of the album.

This single was only released in Japan. A sampler was released as a promo only CD in the United States.

A video was shot for the song when it was released, here is what Lauper said about the video:

"This one has a little bit of a story in it too because it's kind of the rites of passage of women. It has women symbols. I wanted to show the force of nature and the energy of the song. It's really wonderful... It's like you're making paintings and when you're the artist, as opposed to when I direct someone else, it's like performance art. I can't think of any other job I could have where I can enjoy the process of making these little films."[citation needed]
