# CCCXIII…”It’s My Party…”

Of course, if you’re singing the title and it’s actually your birthday, you might want to remember today’s honoree…the late, great Lesley Gore (1946-2015), who would have celebrated her 69th birthday today.  It would also signify, in an odd way, that you’d be in the middle of a terrible birthday, if applicable.

Her stellar career, which spanned four decades, included such hits as the titular song, “Judy’s Turn to Cry” and her impressive ballad, “You Don’t Own Me”.  Born in Brooklyn, New York on this date in 1946, at least remember her name when you hear the above song.

On the other hand, you could actually be singing another one of her songs…”Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows”…then that would be a great thing.  Unless, of course, you were the dreaded pariah Osama bin Laden, who was killed on this date four years ago.

On this particularly odd day, where a short list is actually prevalent…late pediatrician Dr. Benjamin Spock (1903-1998), singer Engelbert Humperdinck (1936), famous divorcee Bianca Jagger…yes, Mick’s former wife…was born in 1945, late WWF superstar Big Boss Man (1962-2004) and the ubiquitous former WWE phenom Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was born in 1972…I wonder if they were aware of that fact when they faced each other?!?

Moving on, soccer master David Beckham (1975), actress Jenna von Oy {from the series’ Blossom and The Parkers} was born in 1977, racer Kyle Busch and figure skater Sarah Hughes born were born in 1985, actress Emily Hart (1986) and actress Kay Panabaker, the sister of current The Flash co-star Danielle, was born in 1990.

In case you’re all interested, I finished last month with the EXACT number of views in the month that started the yearlong streak of 100+ views per month…124 (isn’t that weird?!?)
