Philadelphia singer-songwriter Robert Hazard cemented his legacy worldwide the moment he finished writing the ubiquitous pop anthem "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." The song helped define the fizzily eccentric persona of singer Cyndi Lauper, but Hazard's catalog runs much deeper. Hear him perform a concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Hazard's most recent songs are far more personal than Lauper fans might expect: They reflect on small but meaningful moments in his life, subtly rendered but tinged with powerful emotions ranging from regret to a parent's love. Hazard's new album is titled Troubadour.
