In The Girls On The Beach (1965), Lesley Gore (1946 – 2015) sings two songs: It’s Gotta Be You and I Don’t Wanna Be A Loser. She also appears as herself in Ski Party (1965), singing Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows. “With her flicked hair, and lace and bow outfits, the diminutive Gore evinced the pistachio ice cream sweetness of a Prom queen. She was promoted as the idealised embodiment of the wholesome American teenager – the antithesis of gum-chewing, mascara’d “bad girls” such as the Ronettes and the Shangri Las – and appeared in teenage films including Ski Party and The Girls On The Beach.” The Daily Telegraph 18 February 2015.
