Saturday afternoon tunes: We'll cry if we want to

Leslie Gore died this week, at age 68, of lung cancer.

She didn't smoke.

At sixteen – sixteen! – she recorded "It's My Party," produced by Quincy Jones, and she had many other charting hits, including "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows," written by Marvin Hamlish, and the anthem "You Don't Own Me," which spent three weeks at #2 because that was when the Beatles released "I Want To Hold Your Hand."
