  Troubled Relationship Songs
Love relationships gone-wrong is a common song subject found in many styles and retold in a variety of spins. Consider the over-the-top drama of Lesley Gore's 1963 mini teenage soap-opera, "It's My Party," or the Shangri-La's 1964 death-rock hit "Leader of the Pack." A few years later the subject matters turned to interracial relationships as in Janis Ian's 1967 "Society’s Child," a meditation on an interracial romance between a white girl and black boy. Similarly, the Stories 1973 chart-topping "Brother Louie" dealt with the story of the troubled romance between a black girl and white boy.
