    Spice Girls - "Spice Up Your Life" - Debuted 10-13-1997

    Peak position # 1 - UK Singles Chart


    untitled.jpg

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wfpXI5PKlw

    "Spice Up Your Life" was originally going to be released in the United Kingdom on 6 October 1997, but the release date was delayed in an attempt to displace Elton John's "Candle in the Wind 1997"—a tribute to Princess Diana, who had died two months before—from the top position. The single was released the next week, debuting atop the UK Singles Chart on 19 October 1997 with 321,000 copies sold in its first week, making the Spice Girls the first group to reach number one with their first five singles, and the first to debut at the top of the chart four times in a row. The single was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) on 17 October 1997. As of October 2017, it had sold 887,000 copies and had been streamed 4.5 million times in the UK.

    The Gems

    The 1964 grouping of The Gems included the great Minnie Riperton, Jessica Collins, Dorothy Hucklebee and Theresa Washum. Riperton (a four-octave coloratura soprano). had her first professional singing engagement with The Gems, when she was fifteen. Raynard Miner, a blind pianist, heard her singing during her stint with Hyde Park's A Cappella Choir and became her musical patron.

    The Gems had limited commercial success, but proved to be a good outlet for Riperton's talent. In 1964, they released a local hit, "I Can't Help Myself", and their last single, "He Makes Me Feel So Good", was released in 1965. They also became a session group known as Studio Three and it was during this period that they provided the backing vocals on the classic 1965 Fontella Bass hit "Rescue Me".

    He Makes Me Feel So Good - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoT7JiBE5jc

    The Gems later released records under numerous names - most notably 1966's "Baby I Want You" by the Girls Three and 1967's "My Baby's Real" by the Starlets. The latter had achieved cult status with northern soul and other music fans. It was a Motown-style song reminiscent of Tammi Terrell.

    In 1968, "Watered Down" was released as a follow-up, under the name The Starlets. It was their last release although Riperton would go onto even greater things with the extraordinary Rotary Connection and then as a solo artist before her tragically early death at the age of 31 in July 1979.

    I'm a bit unclear on if you only want bands that had Billboard top 40 hits. If so, then this band won't make the cut.

    The Feminine Complex was an all-girl band from Nashville, Tennessee, and was popular briefly in the late 1960s. They had some singles and one album and made the Nashville local top 40 list. Years later, in 1996, some of their songs were reissued on a compilation album, and there was a story about it in Teen-Beat. I went to a dance in high school at which the band performed.

    This thread has very strict rules which are rarely if ever actually enforced - the post must contain a song sung by at least two but preferably three or more girls who are in a group or sung by one girl whilst one or preferably two or more other girls do some fab dance steps in the fore- or background - that's about it really. It doesn't matter whether or not they charted - so go ahead and add them right in, eh?

    As an example of just how loose the requirements for inclusion are this group qualifies although I really rather wish that they didn't to be quite honest...

    The Shaggs - the band is primarily notable today for their perceived ineptitude at playing conventional rock music; the band was described in one Rolling Stone article as "sounding like lobotomized Trapp Family singers." Terry Adams of NRBQ compared the group's melodic lines and structures to the free jazz compositions of Ornette Coleman.

    Not sure if the Roches have been listed yet?

    A great version of The Band's Acadian Driftwood:

    There is also Suzzy and Maggie Roche's delightful album "Why The Long Face?"

    Two right catchy tunes from one of their best albums - "Speak" - 1989 - The Roches were an undeservedly obscure group that deserved wider acclaim....

    "Big Nuthin'" -

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rbb5mSomdV8

    "Everyone is Good" -

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tDbPF07akE

    And extra bonus points for mentioning one of Robbie Robertson's best tunes!
