Who sang `Its my party` in the early 80`s?????

Andy_R (Elite) posted this on Tuesday, 20th July 2004, 12:18

I remember a song in the early 80`s and it went something like `Its my party and I`ll cry if I want to , cry if I want to , cry if I want to....you`ll cry to if it happened to you`!

I seem to remember also that it was a cover from a 60`s song but Im wondering if anyone knows who sang the 80`s version?

Cheers for any help!

Marie (sp) (said Maree) Wilson. I think.

All the best,

Way off-beam, Andrew :D

The original 1963 version was by Lesley Gore. The 1981 NUmber One hit revival was by Barbara Gaskin and Dave Stewart.

Is that the Dave Stewart who was in The Tourists & Eurythmics, or another one?...

EDIT: Just googled it. Answer is no. :p

Bugger. No wonder our team "Mad Ass Jeffery Presents" came last be one in the Pump and tap music quiz on monday night if my mind is that far out.

What did marie (sp) willson sing then? I know that Cindy Beale was a backing singer.

All the best,

Marie Wilson did "Just what I always wanted" among others.

It was indeed that Dave Stewart who was in The Tourists & Eurythmics.

Mari (no e) Wilson also does the Coupling theme tune. I met her a few years ago, she`s very nice. Cindy Beale, aka Michelle Collins, was indeed a "Wilsation".

It`s not the same Dave Stewart. The former Tourist/Eurythmic is officially called David A Stewart - presumably in an attempt to avoid confusion? Dave Stewart (the other one) and Barbara Gaskin have done quite a lot of other work together - see here.

IIRC, whenever Stewart/Gaskin appeared on TV to perform "It`s My Party", Stewart always wore something which covered most of his face/head. Like a boxer`s head protector or something...

Well I stand corrected on spelling & Dave Stewart, perhaps a few radio DJ`s should be appraised of that correction. ;)

Cheers for the information guys.....but does anyone know where I can purchase this track?

I`ve tried play.com and even Napster but they dont seem to have it! I`ve tried `Barbara Gaskin` in the search engine on yahoo & the info I get is that they released their stuff on an independent label....so that might have something to do with it!
