#soon! Part Un - The 60s-00s Girl Band Debut Breakthrough Rate

60s list based on sales/certifications/charts​


'60s


The ShirellesDedicated To The One I Love or Mama Said (two classics)

The CrystalsHe’s A Rebel (biggest hit from what I can see)

The AngelsMy Boyfriend’s Back (iconic!)

The Marvelettes – Playboy or Don’t Mess With Bill (leaning towards the latter)

Patti Labelle & The Blue BellesLady Marmalade (iconic!!)

The ExcitersDo-Wah-Diddy (any bigger hits I am not familiar with, please chime in)

The Supremes – Baby Love or Stop In The Name Of Love or You Can’t Hurry Love or a hundred other things (All classics but does anything real beat the second choice??)

The RonettesBaby I Love You (will be interesting to see how our winners do this time around)

The ChiffonsOne Fine Day (classic!)

Martha & The VandellasDancing In The Street (classic! Happy with a redo of Heatwave too considering the injustice it missed top 10!)

The Dixie CupsIko Iko or People Say (former a bit of a standard)

The Shangri-LasLeader Of The Pack (iconic)







#soon!

These all seem spot on although Too Many Fish In the Sea, When Your Young And In Love and The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game are far better known these days than the two Marvelettes songs mentioned above.

I'm assuming The Supremes and The Vandellas get extra songs added?

Absolutely The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game!!

(@berserkboi So sorry for my constant interfering by the way, but I am so freakishly exited for this rate. Feel free to ignore everything I say!)

@DJHazey - as The Saturdays expert, What About Us is definitely shaping up as their signature one all things considered, including even having some chart success in Australia unlike many of their other tunes. I am planning to use it as people can vote on it with or without the feature. Other than All Fired Up (which seems to be divisive already and might ruin their shot here - listened to it for the first time over the weekend and also don't like it much), is there another of theirs you'd like me to look into that might fit?

The other contender is definitely "Up" without a doubt.

If The Saturdays have to have 2 entries then the second should definitely be Up to ensure that they have at least 1 good song rated.
As much as I find The Saturdays pleasant to listen to - I just don't think they have enough of a legacy behind them to warrant a second entry. In the 00s list - I feel Girls Aloud and Sugababes earn it the most if anything. I may only allocate it to one and give an extra one to Diana Ross as her three listed before are near impossible to decide between. #soon!
