Lesley Gore [RIP] - Discography - 320kbps Bitrate

Lesley Gore

Born: May 2, 1946  -  Died: February 16, 2015

The most commercially successful solo singer to be identified with the girl group sound, Lesley Gore hit the number one spot with her very first release, "It's My Party," in 1963. Produced by Quincy Jones, who fattened the teenager's sound with double-tracked vocals and intricate backup vocals and horns, she reeled off a few more big hits in 1963 and 1964, including "Judy's Turn to Cry," "She's a Fool," "You Don't Own Me," "That's the Way Boys Are," and "Maybe I Know." She wasn't the most soulful girl group singer by a long shot, but she projected an archetype of female adolescent yearning. Her best songs survive as classics, particularly the irresistibly melodic "Maybe I Know" and "Look of Love" (both written by Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry) and "You Don't Own Me," an anthem of independence with a feminist theme that was considerably advanced for early 1964.

Hi Paul

She certainly was a great singer, I am so glad that I found my collection again and be able to share.

Thanks again Paul for dropping by and sending a note of appreciation.

hi Ozzieguy.
Thank you for all the great shares. I Was wondering if you had any albums by Nicolette Larson she passes away in 1997 at the young age of 45.
