The Best of the Girl Groups, Vol. 1 and 2 by Various Artists (1990)

Favorite Track(s): "Leader of the Pack" and "He's So Fine" and "Chapel of Love" and "The Boy From New York City" and "Remember (Walking in the Sand)" and "Baby, It's You" and "My Boyfriend's Back" and "Sweet Talkin' Guy" and "Loco-Motion" and "You Don't Know" and "Chains" and "Tell Him" and "It Might As Well Rain Until September"

Thoughts: Did you know that Burt Bacharach wrote "Baby, It's You"? I did not. You learn something new every day.

Bottom line: love me some girl groups. I like how nostalgic they make me for childhood, and how catchy they are. Also, totally remind me of Sweatin' to the Oldies, Vol. 2. WHICH I DEFINITELY NEVER WORKED OUT TO EVER IN MIDDLE SCHOOL.

Anyway, listening to these two albums today has helped from sinking into a teary pile of Being Human-induced heartache. YES I'M STILL UPSET ABOUT IT, TOBY WHITHOUSE. You can't really be sad listening to this stuff. Or when watching this:
