Subject: Sha la la la - Girl Groups! (8 left with hints!)

Written By: Tanya1976 on 02/11/05 at 4:37 pm

I love music. It's evident since I"ve joined the site! However, there is one aspect of music that's always been true to my heart - the advent of the girl group/band. They were part of almost every musical decade and music genre from the sixties and beyond. Guess the line from a girl group's song! Enjoy!

Limit: 3

No Googling or cheating please! Enjoy!

1. "Say my name, sun shines through the rain"
Nally - Eternal Flame - The Bangles

2. "The whole world's out of sync"
CeramicsFanatic - Head Over Heels - Go-Gos

3. "When the day begins to open your mind" (This group's album "Exposure" renewed the girl group in the late 80s)

4. "Rock me until the morning light" (Another Freestyle girl group. Their hit shared the same song title with Human League)

5. "I had to have him morning, noon, and night" (Almost a rarity in girl groups. There were four members)

6. "I met him at a candy store"
IndyGent - Leader of the Pack - ShangriLas

7. "This love we're comtemplating is worth the pain of waiting" (the ultimate girl group - no one compares to them/This song raised some eyebrows, though!)

8. "Hello Daddy, Hello Mom"
Maddog - Cherry Bomb - The Runaways

9. "We'll make them turn their heads"
Paul - Be My Baby - The Ronettes

10. "Spring is here"
Catwoman - Chapel of Love - The Dixie Cups

11. "I don't think you're ready for this jelly"
IndyGent - Bootylicious - Destiny's Child

12. "It's not the way you smile that touched my heart"
Mandamoo - Baby, It's You - The Shirelles

13. "If there's a letter in your bag for me"
Mandamoo - Please Mr. Postman - The Marvellettes

14. "I know you're no good for me" (a girl group from the Motown Sound/may have been the first one to single one singer out)

15. "Are we in love or just friends?"
Paul - When Will I See You Again? - The Three Degrees

16. "Doesn't take much to make me happy"
CeramicsFanatic - Best of My Love - The Emotions

17. "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?"
Nally - Lady Marmalade - Labelle

18. "Strange voices are saying"
Nally - Cruel Summer - Bananarama

19. "Room to make her big mistakes"
80s Lady - Wide Open Spaces - The Dixie Chicks

20. "Cause he's kinda big and he's awful strong"
Paul - My Boyfriend's Back - The Angels

21. "Actions speak louder than words"
JReubon - Show Me - The Cover Girls

22. "This is our family jewel"
IndyGent - We are Family - Sister Sledge

23. "I want somebody who will understand"
MagicPudding - Slow Hand - The Pointer Sisters

24. "But I'm gonna make him mine" (this group sang a song sharing the same name of a George Clooney movie)

25. "With lipstick on his collar" (an early hit from the 70s giving a new use for a newspaper)

26. "Theres no other way to say it" (This song may give men an explanation to why we won't use the bathroom alone)

Hey Tanya!

#8 is the fantastic "Cherry Bomb" by The Runaways (one of my favourite bands in my teenage years).

This was the first song Joan Jett ever wrote and I believe she still plays it today in her live sets.

Yes, it is!! I love their songs. So much talent. Hello, Lita Ford! What?? Joan Jett? Cherie Currie? All in the same band! They were on fire.

#21 is the Cover Girls  "Show Me, show me you really love me, actions speak louder than words"  (I know the title is part of that, and I've had it stuck in my head since I've read it!)
