Lesley Gore hit the number one position on the American singles chart with her first release, “It’s My Party.” It was about a teenager who lost her boyfriend to another girl at a party. It topped the American charts for two weeks during mid-1963.
Several months later she released the follow-up, “Judy’s Turn To Cry.” The tables were now turned and the girl had her boyfriend back and it was “Judy’s Turn To Cry.”
It was a great early 1960’s up-tempo pop tune. The bulk of her hits were released before she turned 20 and they remain some of the most radio friendly of their era.
