Musical Interlude {Lesley Gore}

I must admit that I just haven't been in the mood for blogging, lately. I feel like I have a lot of great post ideas but I can't seem to pin them down and work out exactly what they are. The ones I can work out seem like just a little more effort than I am willing to put in at the moment. Ha. But I've got a little post for you, today, on one of my favourite pop singers...

This morning, on Tumblr, I came across a great playlist of '60s songs put together by someone I don't follow and it spurred on the '60s kick I've been on lately...which eventually lead to me listening to nothing but Lesley Gore for most of the day. So here are a few fantastic photos of Lesley and a couple of my favourite songs of hers. If you want to read a bit about her, start with the wiki article, but I basically just want this post to be about images and sound.

How perfect is her flip? Sigh.

{Lesley Gore as Pussy Cat in That Darn Catwoman and Scat! Darn Catwoman, 1967}

I can tell you, now, that I would gladly dress like Lesley Gore as Pussy Cat! She's also wearing pink tights and just-below-the-knee pink boots.

A fantastic video of Lesley singing You Don't Own Me live in 1964. This is one of those songs that are great to put on really loud and belt along to. Very therapeutic!

A colour Scopitone of Lesley's song Wonder Boy which features some very cute and colourful outfits. And Lesley's even cuter short do! This is one of my favourite of her songs.

And another favourite: Maybe I Know. I adore her flip and eye makeup and the gorgeous smile she gives at the end!

I suppose this is a bit of a filler post until I feel up to my regular content again but she was on my mind today...I'm sure there are many other fans of hers who read my blog, too.

  1. Hi sweet Andi, what a delightfully fun post and ode to a terrific singer. Try not to worry too much, we all have highs and lows when it comes to our blogging mojo. It's just part of the ebb and flo and sharing our life, passions, and interests online, I think. Take a while to relax and recharge, if you need, we'll all understand a zillion percent.

    Oodles of hugs from Canada,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. Too funny! I was already listening to Lesley gore before I even came on blogger this morning! :) It must be one of those days!

  3. What a babe, I love 'you don't own me' xx

  4. "You Don't Own Me" is such a great song!

  5. You don't own me is a fenomenaltune and sooo bittersweet, thank you for sharing!


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
