    I guess that was a little bit before my time, but I know the song and that's too bad nevertheless.
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    'It's My Party' singer-songwriter Lesley Gore dies at 68

    By MARK KENNEDY, AP
    37 minutes ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — Singer-songwriter Lesley Gore, who topped the charts in 1963 at age 16 with her epic song of teenage angst, "It's My Party," and followed it up with the hits "Judy's Turn to Cry," and the feminist anthem "You Don't Own Me," died Monday. She was 68.

    Gore died of lung cancer at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, according to her partner of 33 years, Lois Sasson.

    "She was a wonderful human being — caring, giving, a great feminist, great woman, great human being, great humanitarian," Sasson, a jewelry designer, told The Associated Press...

    “The more people understand that they probably already know a gay person, and in fact adore them, then the better off we're gonna be—and that may take awhile, but it's happening, for sure. By the time I shut my eyes for good, I'll have seen a real difference, I think, and I'm happy about that.”

    I actually did cry at my 13th birthday party after seeing the boy I liked holding hands with my friend. I sat home the next day and played that single over and over and cried.

    Her hits were before I was born, but I loved Lesley Gore. The group I hung with in the 80's were the muscle car crowd and greasers. We used to jokingly say, "it's totally 50's" if something was cool and "totally 80's" if it sucked. "You don't own me" will always be my favorite.

    Best era of music - ever.

    Sleep peacefully Lesley. :

    R.I.P. Lesley

    I could be wrong but I believe she was the first individual baby boomer to have a #1 record on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with It's My Party in June of 1963-beating out Stevie Wonder and his Fingertips Pt. 2 by more than two months.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
