100 Greatest Girl Group Songs

Background: - The sound of the early Girl Groups was typified by the products of Phil Spector's "Wall Of Sound" production: A thick layer of intrumentation (drums, guitar, bass, a horn section) with a lead vocal, often deliberately girlish in tone, singing deceptively simple, naive lyrics which expressed the emotions of teenagers of the time. They were often manufactured by producers or record companies as a vehicle for the latest work by their resident songwriters, such as the work of Phil Spector and the early days of Motown.
Criteria: - These songs are ranked based upon their level of impact on the genre of girl groups.
Guidelines for this list:
1. Songs released in the 1950s and 1960s only.
2. No instruments were played by the singers.
