Lesley Gore Has Passed Away

Sad news today that Lesley Gore, who became famous for "It's My Party", died from lung cancer at the age of 68 today in Manhattan, New York.

Lesley's first hit, "It's My Party" in 1963, rocketed to #1 in both the U.S. and Australia.

 Her follow-up sequel, "Judy's Turn To Cry", also hit the Top 5. 


But Gore arguably scored her most significant hit the following year with the #1 smash "You Don't Own Me", which changed the outlook of females and altered the dynamics of a relationship forever.

Lesley indeed made her mark on the world, and we are grateful for her music.
