Lesley Sue Goldstein was born in New York in March 1946 and died in 2015. We know her as Lesley Gore.
She was a real favorite a couple of years before The Beatles. It was those years between Elvis going into the US Army and The Beatles appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show.
I don’t recall any of her songs until “California Nights” showed up in a Batman episode. In the mid-1970s, I got into the pre-Beatles era following the release of “American Graffiti” and heard more of her songs.
Lesley was cute and very clean. She was also a hit-making machine. Her biggest hit was “It’s my party”, a song that keeps popping up in movie soundtracks.
You can “It’s my party” and more of her hits here:
