    Inspired by the eternal flame at Graceland, this song hit me unexpectedly two years ago when I realized after all my years of marriage, love between two people can actually be an eternal flame. My grandkids heard it on The Goldbergs, and it stuck with them also. Now we sing it together - me thinking of my wife and them laughing because of The Goldbergs.

    Oh, shucks. I forgot about them. My daughter had a fanbook about them, "B*Witched - Destination Everywhere." Well, not any more, I guess.

    I don't think Bratmobile ever had a hit, and they're not the kind of thing I choose to listen to, but maybe they deserve at least a mention, because they do seem to be important in the history of all-girl punk bands.

    Looking through all these groups, I'm amazed at how many I have been completely unaware of.

    New to me.

    The first of those tracks is a bit Tom Tom Club but the others aren't and it is all a bit eclectic.

    I can see how/why they have been heavily sampled.

    Thanks! I came across that video of others reacting to it on YouTube and they mentioned all the records it broke, so I thought it would make a good contribution here. I don't care much for the song, but the video's really cool and vibrant!

    I can't make up my mind if I should be approaching this thread to include as many relevant duos/groups as I can think of or only the ones that I like or quite like. So far it has been the latter but I am aware that there was Pepsi and Shirley and then from the early 1990s a whole range of self styled girl groups/bands along the lines of the Spice Girls and Destiny's Child. Those are really not my thing at all - wrong age etc - but I am always keen to be fair and to keep an open mind. So as much as the very lengthy list of boy bands combined managed to produce in my humble opinion just one classic pop record in Take That's "Back For Good", (some others were just about passable, I have found most to be forgettable) I offer All Saints's "Pure Shores" as its female equivalent for production wise it undoubtedly had a touch of class:

    I have a fondness for the McGuire Sisters:





    And for bonus the Swedish version of Sugartime with the line "Think how much sugar there is in USA":
