#1 Thirty Years Ago Today
Thirty years ago this week disco/R&B star Linda Clifford enjoyed what would be her final of four Billboard dance chart toppers with Don't Come Crying To Me. The track was written and produced by Michael Gore (Lesley's brother) who was hot off winning two 1980 Oscars for writing and producing the Fame soundtrack title song. Gore is also revered among show queens as the co-author of 1988's Carrie: The Musical, which remains the most infamous flop in Broadway history. TRIVIA: Linda Clifford was Miss New York 1966.
