Intrigued to see this selling so well on iTunes here in Oz, so thought I would give it a listen through, and thought it was pretty average. It looks like I might have to get used to it though, as it looks like it might somehow get to #1 and knock Wiz Khalifa off the top spot.

After a little Wikipedia research, it turns out she is Conrad Sewell's sister and this song is a cover of Lesley Gore song of the same title.

A decent cover which I simply adore for some reason.

The Love Child promos on TV are to blame for this being relevant. The raps are mediocre and the chorus is boring and uneventful. I don't like this at all. A future #1? Hope not. 2.9.

I've always liked the original and Grace is a decent enough singer to not ruin the chorus so I can still enjoy that but the raps suuuuuuuuck and that stop/start jolting through the verses is incredibly annoying.

Chorus is nice and both artists contribute well. The key change towards the end is also quite lovely. Where this falters however is how the beat awkwardly jolts all over the place mainly during the verses, really takes the attention away from the otherwise solid melodies. 3.5

This is in the spotlight due to combinations of nepotism & what are essentially legal work-arounds for payola that achieve the same effect. I try my hardest to make sure I don't solely support major label artists and I think if more people did, things would be a little better. For instance, Western Australian singer Grace Woodroofe who adopted the mononym before this singer did, hence why I will refer to her in an eccentric way for the course of this review.

Now that I have that out of the way, I can go back to applauding this for bravery. Why you ask? Well a few reasons:

-I'm posting about this on the internet. It's a well noted fact that the internet really has an issue with women, as cesspools like theredpill & #gamerg8 show.
-Grace [QLD] is making her debut single a cover of the grandmother of all feminist anthems.
-Lesley Gore passed away about a month before this track was released, it takes a lot of chutzpah to cover an artist like that.
-Lesley Gore was a vocal powerhouse. Grace [QLD] goes even so far as to mimic the famous 1964 live version Lesley performed, which is really calling for high expectations.
-"You Don't Own Me" is a song that totally doesn't work in today's pop climate. Lesley's recording goes for like two minutes which is just way too short for 2015, and why they have to casually hide the fact that all Grace [QLD] is singing is a chorus, because...
-They added a rippity rapper to the track. One who isn't Eminem either, so the average 9gag user is probably in distress. I'm undecided on whether or not I'm for his contribution, as it's on the right topic but I can't help but feel it slightly diminishes the point of the song. She shouldn't need someone else to tell you that she's strong and independent, she does it herself and it's a powerful statement.
-This was released on Sony and sounds absolutely nothing like their usual complete antithesis of bravery.
-This does not even sound on trend with anything, it's just doing its own modern spin on the original and it rather pays off.

To go on from one of my previous points, I think Grace [QLD] does a good job with her performance. It's a tall order of course, but she doesn't try to go beyond her limits and it pays off pretty well. And of course, yay for feminism, and yay for getting more people to listen to a classic which doesn't get quite as much attention as it probably should.

This track is frustratingly uneven. The cover parts are nice and it's good to have the track updated to introduce it to a new audience. But that rapper is just awful and the production is so messy that I can't fully enjoy it. I sit listening and waiting for the lady to sing. 3.5 for me

The production kills me now. What's up with the constant stop start thing. It's not good, very amateurish. Which is a shame because the parts that 'Grace' sings are actually very good.

Vielleicht ist es bei diesem Song zuträglich, das Original nicht zu kennen oder es zumindest kaum mehr im Ohr zu haben, wie es bei mir der Fall ist. Deshalb bewerte ich in diesem Fall auch mal ohne jegliche Referenz und muss sagen, dass ich die Nummer sogar ziemlich cool gemacht finde. Das Arrangement klingt ein wenig abgehackt, aber atmosphärisch und gesanglich passt das schon ziemlich gut. Der Rapper ist okay.

Gute 4.

...ach nein, bitte nicht so - ich kenne das Original und diese eigenwillige Version will sich nicht in meinem Ohr wohl fühlen - die Lady singt ja ganz nett, aber das Geschwätz vom Raper macht alles zunichte -...
...ich war wohl zu streng mit meinen 3* - wenn mir auch nach wie vor das 'Geschwätz' nicht bekommt, muss ich doch den sehr guten Gesang von Grace anerkennen. Das Gesamtbild des Covers ist mir somit, nach wiederholtem Hören, 4* wert...

▒ Ook ik ga natuurlijk voor het origineel uit 1963 van de helaas op 68 jarige overleden leeftijd (16-02-2015) Amerikaanse zangeres, actrice, songschrijfster en activiste: "Lesley Sue Goldstein", alias: "Lesley Sue Gore" !!! Maar deze coverversie uit begin maart 2015 is zeker niet slecht ☺!!!

Kudos to a single bringing my interest to a song I was never really that excited about. I heard this regularly since its quick climb to #1 but wasn't rating it much at all - was just indifferent to it. But this was destined to draw me in and it is down to the singing and production. Grace's vocals are amazing and I like the melody, instrumental arrangements and tone shifts. G-Eazy is reasonable with his contributions, well entrenched into this version of the song now after so many listens. Over time this has gone from "no you shouldn't really dare to cover this" to "wow I want to hear that again".

Ein recht gelungenes Cover aus meiner Sicht, Stimmt passt gut für den Song, über die Raps kann man sich streiten, wären nicht unbedingt nötig gewesen. 4.5

Über den Rappart lässt sich wie immer streiten. Finde diese Version aber unglaublich gelungen. Das moderne Arrangement passt perfekt. Teilweise höre ich auch kleine James Bond vibes raus.

In Nederland is de melodie natuurlijk vooral bekend van Hazes' "Zeg maar niets meer". Deze remake vind ik heel tof gedaan. Modern maar toch met die o zo bekende lijn.

Ich muss gestehen, dass mir das Original bis dato nichts sagte. Quincy Jones, bereits Produzent desselben und Altmeister seines Fachs, gelingt der Spagat, die Version frisch klingen zu lassen, ohne deren Wurzeln zu verleugnen. Ob der Rapper und die "Nadelsprünge" zu Beginn dazu nötig waren, bleibt dahingestellt; mich stört beides nicht sonderlich. 1963 mag die Message noch ziemlich unerhört gewesen sein (man denke bloss an "There Goes My Everything" oder auf Deutsch "aber Dich gibt's nur einmal für mich"), aber es tut auch den heutigen Gangsta-Rappern (rein optisch scheint G-Eazy nicht dazuzugehören) gewiss gut, die klare Ansage mal wieder zu hören.
Long story short: Solide, abgerundete Vier mit Potential.

An die Rap-Hasser: Es gibt Versionen ohne G-Eazy. Bei uns wurde leider nur eine sehr langweilige mit der Single released; die interessantere mit Trompeten-Intro nur ein paar mal in den Radios gespielt.

Ich kenne den Song in der dramatisch-theatralischen Version vom "Dirty Dancing"-Soundtrack (von der ich lange dachte, es sei das Original).
Dieses Cover der australischen Newcomerin (das in ihrer Heimat und in UK ein Hit ist) bewahrt sich viel von dieser (klassischen) Atmosphäre (wohl nicht zuletzt der Tatsache geschuldet, dass der gute alte Quincy Jones hier produziert hat) und hat mit dem Rapper und den Breaks doch einen sehr zeitgemässen, frischen Anstrich.

Warum müssen diese Rapper eigentlich immer alles zerstören...? Dieses Geplapper ist wirklich total "cheesy" und wäre wirklich nicht nötig gewesen, denn die Stimme von Grace ist super und erreicht die Klasse des Originals.

Diese Neuauflage tönt für mich sogar noch etwas frischer als das schöne Original aus dem Jahr 1963 von Lesley Gore (ja, genau, das war die mit "It's my Party").

Interesting and innovative cover of the Lesley Gore classic from a teenage girl who is old enough to be her grand-daughter.

Great feminist anthem which shows society still has a long way to go before girls and women are treated as equals.

Ja, ohne den Rap würde ich das auch deutlich besser finden. Aber auch so recht gut. 4+*

edit: Muss hier nun doch noch auf die 5* erhöhen, bin wohl etwas spät was die 'Entdeckung' dieses Songs angeht. Wird sehr warscheinlich aber ihr einziger Hit werden.

Wem es nicht aufgefallen ist, sie singt ohnehin nur den Refrain des Oldies. Und den Rap - bäh!

I associate this with Christmas time so it's only fair I rate it now.
Even though the production here is all over the place, it sounds very good to these ears. It has quite a sexy sound. I don't care much about G-Eazy, but he doesn't bother me either. Grace is really talented however, she has a great voice and her ad libs after the last chorus are everything.

Sehe das wie viele hier: der Gesangspart von Grace ist stark, das Rap-Geplapper dazwischen hätte es so nicht gebraucht, auch wenn es Schlimmeres aus der Sparte gibt. Abgerundete 4.

Boy was this an over-hyped piece of Aussie pop! There is absolutely nothing wrong with it but it will never touch the originals authenticity, ever!
