“The Girls Can’t Help It” (Includes Video Notebooks at the End of the Manuscript)
There has been a rich history of Girl Groups in the American and world culture for decades. The music has been written by professional writers and by many of the acts themselves. The most important factor has always been the ability of the music to reach and connect with the intended audience.

Early groups like The Chantels, The Paris Sisters, The Blossoms and then BAM…POW…ZAM…The Supremes. That group rivaled The Beatles throughout 1964 as Billboard Chart Toppers.

In this eBook I will discuss all of these significant Girl Groups from the beginning (The Chantels thru The Spice Girls).

It is important to know the past so we can see what the future has to offer and the history of Girl Groups is rich in quality and quantity. There were songwriting teams at Motown and in the Brill Building in the early days. The Beatles covered some of these early Girl Group hits like “Chains” and “Please Mr. Postman.” They also hung out with one very prominent Phil Spector-produced group of gals in 1964.
