Condolences to the friends and family of Lesley Gore, who passed away today at the age of 68.

Discovered by Quincy Jones way back in the day, she had a string of top 10 hits, but none bigger than the ultimate “my party should have been cooler” song.

As someone who’s cried at a birthday party of his own, and then thought about playing that song on repeat until everyone left, I can empathize. A triple shadow, featuring Bryan Ferry and Amy Winehouse (produced by Quincy Jones) covers, respectively.
