So Long, Leslie Gore

No doubt, most people are going to remember Lesley Gore for It’s My party,
but personally I’ve always been more of a You Don’t Own Meguy.

And don’t even try telling me that Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows isn’t one of the most fun songs ever.

That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with It’s My Party. A fine song it is, even though in my mind it’s forever associated with that scene from the movie Problem Child where Junior busts up the neighbour girl’s birthday party.

I blame my sister. You know how a kid starts liking something and then watches it over and over and over and over and over? Yeah, that.

But even if we can’t agree on a favourite, I imagine we can all agree that 68 is still a little too young to go.
