Strange Acoustics: You Don’t Own Me

You Don’t Own Me was originally recorded by Leslie Gore in 1963 when she was only 17 years old. At the time, the defiant song inspired young women, and is seen as one of the early influences of the Women’s Liberation Movement. 

There have been several successful covers of the song, most recently by Grace, who gives the song a modern swagger. Interestingly, her version is produced by Quincy Jones, who also produced Leslie Gore’s version.
