60s Songs By Female Artists
1. It's My Party - (Leslie Gore)
This song was released in 1965 and was a huge hit for Leslie Gore. My vocal range is on the low end here.
Drop D Tuning = No
Capo = No
Rhythm = root down up down up and repeat with a few a chops and downstrokes thrown in
This song was from the movie "Billy Jack" if anyone remembers that film from the Drive In days. Song was written by Canadians Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter who first recorded the song in 1969 as part of the group The Original Caste.
The song became more popular however in 1971 with a release by the group "Coven", whose version as I mentioned was part of the soundtrack for the movie Billy Jack. Skeeter Davis also recorded the song in 1972.
