The Underrated Lesley Gore

Reports that the singer has died at 68 from cancer.  Carried through "You Don't Own Me" to being openly gay and outspoken years later, even hosted PBS "In the Life" series in 2004.  Quincy Jones was early producer.   "Maybe I Know" was Barry-Greenwich perfection.  Won Oscar nomination for song in "Fame." Even played "Pussycat" on the original "Batman" TV series (see below).
