100 Greatest Uptempo Doo-Wop Songs

Criteria: - These songs were chosen mainly for their initial and lasting popularity, with some weight being given to their overall impact on the Doo Wop genre. The Doo-Wop era essentially started in around 1953 and was pretty much over by the end of 1963, although there are a few notable exceptions from outside of that time period. If there were two significant versions of a particular song, both groups are listed in the same slot, with the more significant "Doo-Wop" version being listed first.
