"It's My Party"
Her sexuality is probably more famous than her music (Gore came out in 2005), which just goes to show that in America you can be more famous for what you are rather than what you do.
The song itself has a catchy pop hook and still is very popular today.
The song's chorus ("It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to, You would cry too, if it happened to you") quickly became a part of American pop cultural language, as a phrase used to describe being utterly humiliated and miserable during an event that is supposed to be a happy occasion.
The song was covered by Bryan Ferry on his 1973 album These Foolish Things.
A 1981 cover by Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin was a UK number one hit single. There is also a Swedish language version, known as "Leva livet". "Leva livet" has been recorded by artists as Lill-Babs (1963), Magnus Uggla (1979) and Lotta Engberg (1997). ~ [Source: Wikipedia]
