Lesley Gore - It's My Party

... and she'll cry if she wants to. A great little clip from "Hullabaloo." Watching the background go-go dancers who, my god, look like real people, slightly wide hips and out-of-step syncopation and all, is worth the price of admission alone.

Gore recorded It's My Party in 19 and 63, at age 16 and it would be her only #1 hit. She'd follow up later in the year with a sequel song, Judy's Turn to Cry, which tells the story of the lead character reuniting with her boyfriend, Johnny, after he dumps Judy. Those fickle kids!
