Suburban teenage girl sings about suburban teenage girl angst -- and somehow makes an instant classic of it. I loved "It's My Party" and its sequel "Judy's Turn to Cry," but my favorite Lesley Gore song has always been "Maybe I Know." Here's my Lesley Gore blog postabout it.
I was really sad to hear of her passing. I think she died of lung cancer but wasn't a smoker? It seems like we are losing all the old early rock n roll, country and pop icons.
I had been putting off adding her music to my library but put that unfortunate oversight to rest and ordered a couple of items. I've heard she had some solid album cuts and low charting tunes besides the big hits!
