    The Shirelles - "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" - Debuted 11-21-1960

    Held down the number one chart spot for two weeks - Weeks charted - 19


    True fact - Most everyone (including me up until like five minutes ago) thinks that the title of the song is "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" - it's not... It actually is "Will You Love Me Tomorrow".

    A true fact that has nothing to do with anything - this is my 100th post and I'm now officially a "Senior Member"... which means I get to lord it over someone - I'm just not certain who...

    I have always enjoyed the songs and the singing of The Indigo Girls. Here is an amazing example of a capella harmony singing by The Girls.....

    I think the only all-girl group I've seen is the Anonymous Four

    They weren't all-girl, but I got to see The Waitresses once while on my way to class..

    Chrissie Hynde following Bow Wow Wow on stage in 1980-something... "if you didn't like that then _____ you!"

    And I remember Elastika, who ripped off Wire's Three Girl Rhumba... made a beer commercial out of it... tragic.

    Almost forgot that I saw the Indigo Girls at one of those summer festivals...

    Another excellent half-girl group I saw once, but all-girl on the front line...

    A few that spring to mind:

    Gladys Knight and the Pips ("Midnight Train to Georgia" among others)
    Shedaisy ("Lucky 4 You")
    Sweethearts of the Rodeo (Vince Gill's first wife was one half of this duo)
    The Forester Sisters
    The Wreckers ("Leave the Pieces")
    Maddie & Tae ("Girl in a Country Song")

    I will second the love for The Judds and The Supremes.

    Wait, what? How cool is that! They had such a unique sound. Their sax was unique for a rock group; instead of the usual blues licks, he played free jazz. And their bass player was dynamite (female as well). Their songs document the second generation of women's liberation in America. First there was the struggle to get recognized properly in the workplace and society (characterized by Helen Reddy's I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar). When the Waitresses came around, it documented Patty Donahue's (through Chris Butler's lyrics) dealing with the world newly liberated women stepped into, both strong but a little unsure. At least that's what I hear.

    This isn't just a girl group; it's an all-star supergroup. We'll never hear them again. Linda Ronstadt has Parkinson's and can't sing anymore.

    This one garnered two Grammy awards in 1987. (Only two? Come on!)
