The 1960s yielded one of pop music's most enjoyable trends, the
"girl group" phenomenon. Starting in the 1950s as a trickle represented by the
Hearts, the Blossoms, the Joytones, the Clickettes, the Deltairs, the Quintones, the
Chantels, and the Bobbettes, it became a flood of groups in the 1960s, including the
Shirelles, the Chiffons, the Shangri-Las, the Crystals, the Ronettes, the Angels, Reparata
and the Delrons, the Exciters, the Cookies, the Supremes, the Marvelettes, and Patti
Labelle and the Blue Belles.
