I'm Gonna Be Strong by Soundgarden

Summary

'''I'm Gonna Be Strong'''" is a song written by the famed songwriting duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. It was first recorded by Frankie Laine in 1963 and released as a single on Columbia Records. However, the song did not become a major hit until 1964, when Gene Pitney released his version as a single. It was also a single released by the 1980 band Blue Angel, with lead vocals provided by future star Cyndi Lauper. This release was prior to Lauper's solo career; however, Lauper re-recorded the track and released it as a single in 1994. The song was also featured on 1982's ''Quiet Lies'' album by Grammy winner Juice Newton. Though Newton never released the song as a single, her remake was later added as a bonus track to her first ''Greatest Hits'' collection.
