Lesley Gore, who was a teenager in the 1960s when she recorded hit songs about heartbreak and resilience that went on to become feminist touchstones,
died on Monday in Manhattan. She was 68. Lois Sasson, her partner of 33 years, said Ms. Gore died of lung cancer at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Too much stardom defeating the genuine person is a very typical happening to child or adolescent stars.
Of all the tunes of my youth, this one and Helen Reddy’s “I am Woman”, meant so much…thank you!
Thank you Carol for expressing your appreciation of this shared song. The journey down memory lane can be quite awesome. So glad you enjoyed!
I always do! Thank you for posting it.
