Tu te trompes
US pop princess Lesley Gore had a go at recording her feminist anthem You don’t own me in French (as Je ne sais plus), German (Goodbye Tony) and Italian (Va tu sei libero). Here, though, Belgium’s Valerie Pascale provides an alternative French-language version (while fellow countrywoman Liliane recorded the Flemish version). It was one of just three 45s Valerie issued in her homeland. Her ballsy delivery works well with the defiant lyrics. However, on her later English-language 45, Without your love, she takes – how shall we put this? – a more relaxed approach to holding a tune, which, ahem, proved less aurally satisfying.
