I have a particular sensitivity to the letter "G."
Martiniano showed me this video tonight. It's fantastically campy. Amanda Lear, once romantically linked to David Bowie, Bryan Ferry, Brian Jones and Salvador Dali(!) was the disco queen of Europe in the 80s. Watch the video and you can't help but smile.

I can't stop listening to Klaus Nomi's cover of "You Don't Own Me" off of his 1981 s/t album. His rendering has everything but the kitchen sink thrown in -- cabaret Queen-like theatrics, Thin Lizzy double lead guitar harmonies, middle of the road pub rock revivalist bummer, and Martin Duffy-like organ swells. It's probably the latter two, echoes of Denim and Felt, that draw me towards this version.
And the original and classic Leslie Gore version from 1964's TAMI show --
