If you just saw Tyler Perry's Good Deeds and are wondering who does that fabulous cover of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time, it's jazz singer Cassandra Wilson that's been included on the Good Deeds Soundtrack List. You may have thought it was Tuck and Patti who do an equally awesome cover.
The true mark of a song with timeless appeal, Lauper's song has been covered by countless artists which according to Wikipedia range from Lisa Hartman (Knot's Landing), Nana Mouskouri, Everything But the Girl to Matchbox Twenty.
I've culled though all the covers to find 5 movie and television soundtracks which use the song including Eva Cassidy (Smallville), a ratcheted up version by Quietdrive (Prom Night, John Tucker Must Die) along with a totally brutal karaoke version by Twilight's Anna Kendrick (Up In the Air) Soundtrack. Plus Cyndi Lauper's original version seems well suited to dance scenes (Strictly Ballroom & Romy & Michele's Highschool Reunion).
What's your favorite cover version of "Time After Time" or what movie or television shows do you remember the song from? Please leave your comments in the guestbook at the bottom of the page.

That takes me back to the 80s! Great song, and good to hear it covered. I'm rather fond of the original.
