What are your thoughts on this subject?
Such a cursory report on a major recording star of the early to mid 60s! Besides the mention of songs such as, "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows" and "You Don't Own Me", who can forget the sequel to "It's My Party", the Gold Record recording of "Judy's Turn To Cry" or her other hits such as: "Look of Love" "Maybe I Know" "That's the Way Boys Are" "California Nights" and "She's a Fool"? Lesley Gore wrote a string of chart-topping hits over her five decades long career, but the "You Don't Own Me" singer turns out to have lived a much less glamorous life than many might have imagined for her. Despite having recorded 13 studio albums, 6 compilation albums, and 37 singles, the songwriter, who died in February of 2015, at the age of 68, left behind a meager $50K estate. According to documents obtained by Page Six, she willed her estate to her partner of 33 years, Lois Sasson. The musician died of lung cancer at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, despite being a nonsmoker. Gore's will, from 2012, states that if her partner were to die before her, the secondary recipient should be her brother Michael Gore, who co-wrote their Oscar nominated song "Out Here On My Own" for the 1980 film "Fame".

Great voice! The first tidbit of knowledge; later her parents returned their surname which they had been using...what? was it rented, or what?

Lesley was born "Lesley Sue Goldstein", not "Lesley Gore Goldstein". Make sure you have the correct information, on someone, before you post, about them. Other than that, Lesley Gore was a great singer. My late, older sister had a few of her 45's, and she would play them, on her "Stereo Record Player," all the time. That's how I knew who Lesley Gore was. My favourite song, by her, is probably, "You Don't Own Me"!

The part about her parents and their original name sounds garbled.

I absolutely LOVE Lesley Gore! Her songs just bring you "up" when you are feeling a little down. I remember listening to her songs when I was young. She is fantastic.
