The best "Girl Group" song?

IMO The Shirelles were the best “Girl Group”. But this is my favorite Girl Group song...

3. Nothing against the Dixie Chicks

 

“Girl Groups” is a defined term referring to vocalist groups comprised of women from the early ‘60s. The Shirelles, The Ronettes, The Crystals, The Shangri-las, etc.

These ladies were pretty great though, and this is a classic ...

8. I liked a lot of them from those mentioned above...

to the Supremes and beyond but I also liked this song more than I liked the band overall. They had one or two other songs I liked but this was the one that caught my attention.





Well, I see from the comments above that I didn't quite get it so...

9. My personal favorite...

 

My favorite Go-Go’s (not a “Girl Group”, see earlier post) song is We Got the Beat...

Neither are The Supremes lol, they came later.

11. Supremes were on the radio in the early 60s

from what I recall. That vid is from '65 but I remember hearing them a year or so earlier. I'd say they were among the last.

I still do.

12. Me, too :)

 

I saw The Ronettes perform Be My Baby during a Murray the K show at the Paramount Theatre in NY before it was released. They weren’t even The Ronettes yet, they were known as “Murray the K’s Dancing Girls” at the time. Gloria Steinem must have had a heart attack! (I can’t say I’d blame her.)

13. Be My Baby is definitely the one, but a friend turned me on to this tonight, and it's phenomenal:

20. That is my favorite one too.

If you want to hear more Ronnie Specter, she still sings from time to time. She did a few duets with Joey Ramone that were simply amazing. Darlene Love is awesome too.
