Lesley Gore - It's my party

LESLEY GORE (New York City, US, 2-5-1946 / Ibid, 16-2-2015): IN MEMORIAM
 
Recordamos el 70 aniversario natal de la cantante estadounidense Lesley Gore, fallecida a los 68 en 2015, con It's my party, canción con la que alcanzó el nº 1 en las listas de Billboard en 1963. El single superó el millón de copias vendidas y ganó el disco de oro.


It's my party, escrita por Walter Gold, John Gluck Jr, Herb Weiner (música) y Seymour Gottlieb (letra), fue la primera producción de Quincy Jones que llegó al nº 1 y, al correr de tiempo, se convirtió en paradigmático himno de los corazones rotos adolescentes.

It's my party (lyrics)

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night
But leave me alone for a while
Till Johnny's dancin' with me
I've got no reason to smile

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door
Like a queen with her king
Oh what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearin' his ring

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Oh, it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you
