Not only is It's The Girls! the title of Bette Midler's fantastic new album. It's also representative of what today's Throwback Thursday. Girl groups. The doo wop and the rock n roll and the shimmying and sashaying of women all around the world.
What really started this was Fifth Harmony. You should know about them. They've been gaining a steady little fanbase. They had that one song “Boss” people really got into. They performed it on the New Year's Eve ball. Is was so funny. They were all lip syncing. It was beautiful.
After the sixties. Girl groups died. I'm sure they had some, I'm just not sure what they are. The nineties were when they really picked back up. However, if we skip two decades, I wouldn't be able to mention how Joan Jett (singer of “I Love Rock n Roll”) was part of this very well received all girl rock band called The Runaways. The most successful song they had was called “Cherry Bomb”. That being said, most people don't know it.
There were two girl groups who defined the 90's. TLC and The Spice Girls. More then likely we would be hardcore fan girling over TLC if rapper Left Eye hadn't died tragically all those years ago.
Speaking of this new TLC project. I honestly don't want to hear it. I love TLC. I don't want new TLC music without Left Eye. I won't be buying it. I hope it does well for them, but I have no interest.
When it comes to The Spice Girls, this is age appropriate at this point. If all there remembered for is “Wannabe” that's all they need. That song is so iconic it hurts. And we still know who Victoria Beckham is. They may have only had three albums, but Lord knows that they are icons.
That said wishing them luck in 2015 right along with TLC. Dominate the world. Shut it down.
