Lesley Gore

Ah, I know, weeks go by without a post then three in one day.

While I was getting the address for the New York Times article on twitter shaming, I read that the great Lesley Gore had died aged 68 from lung cancer.

Gore’s biggest hit was the teen-angst anthem, “It’s My Party” (and it’s follow-up “Judy’s Turn to Cry” where the singer got her man back).  Such were the days when Gore was performing. Still, her greatest song, for my money was “You Don’t Own Me” (and there was that smashing cover by Joan Jett too).

You go girl!
