    I was terribly sad to hear of the passing of Lesley Gore.

    We all know the song. At 16 her voice coach delivered the song to a Quncy Jones an A&R man at Mercury Records. He ran in to Phil Spector at a Charles Azanavour concert (like seriously who would go to that) and Spector announced he wanted to record the song with The Crystals. Jones left early and by Friday Lesley Gore was on the airwaves and a star at 16.Quncy was in demand, and became the first African American Vice President at Mercury and had a bit of a career as a producer

    You hear the song and you know its Lesley, so here it is

      My Dear Hedley,
      I too was saddened by the news. I thought I’d use tomorrow to play her songs, all favorites for me. I love this one. Perfect choice.

        Kat, she starred in the 1964 T.A.M.I. show when she and the Rolling Stones each sang 6 songs. Watch to the end where a somewhat uncomfortable Smokey and a smiling Marvin have been charged with clapping along. I think Gerry Marsden is also involved looking very confused.

      • Hedley Says:

        Heck, and here are the Stones from the same show , why not. Chuck Berry is in the Lesley Gore clip.

        MDH,
        Smokey looked bored until someone must have told him he was on camera then he got into her music. She was so good!

        Haven’t ever heard of the TAMI show but they played great music and lots of it.

    Belated (and, by that, I mean LATE in the evening!) thanks for posting that T.A.M.I. Show clip of Lesley. There she was in her high heels and Jackie Kennedy suit singing her heart out and did you notice? No Auto-Tune. No lip-syncing. No missed notes. Just standing there belting out song after song. And she was, what?, seventeen-years-old? Can you imagine any of today’s pop “stars” attempting such a thing, much less pulling it off? I can’t. It just confirmed by assertion that Ms. Gore was a severely underrated talent.

    Just as a bit of history, Kat, here’s a link for info about the T.A.M.I. Show. I remember seeing it when it first came out, but think I need to see it again. I’ve just moved it to the top of my Netflix queue.

      im6,
      How I would have loved to be part of that audience.

      I did notice Leslie was actually singing her songs. She looked perfect, and I love that flip hair-do. It was the same one I had for my prom.

      That she was seventeen is still amazing to me. She had the presence of someone much older, and that voice!!!!

        I forgot to mention Lesley’s frosted lipstick! Worthy of a time capsule.

        Netflix notified me that ‘The T.A.M.I. Show’ was mailed to me this morning.

        im6,
        I have never been a lipstick wearer so I didn’t even notice, but I went back and saw exactly what you mean.

      Gnu,
      I love the dancing moves and the music playing behind them. James Brown could really shake it. In the 60’s all the groups were amazing with their singing and dancing. I would have died of exhaustion.

        James Brown and The Flames were okay, but they were no Darryl Rhoades and The Hahavishnu Orchestra.

        im6,
        How did you ever find this group and singer? I love their “clothes”. That yellow hat and green cape are wonderful!!

      Gnu,
      I think I’ve always liked this because of the slow music, not their usual. It is a song being sung to a girl he loves.

    One more from the TAMI – Chuck Berry, ladies and gentlemen Mr Chuck Berry. Oh and how wonderful are the dancers

    I hope you’re not jumping out of your second floor windows into the snow.
