In honor of Danity Kane’s reunion (praise!!!!) I’ve been having major girl group cravings. It’s impossible to really rank the greats. The Supremes didn’t really make videos but how can you not have the prototype for girl trios to come? Does it count as a girl group if they play instruments, like the Bangles? Does Destiny’s Child’s choreography put them a step ahead of The Saturdays, who don’t dance?
But, here it is anyway. My favorite girl group videos. I threw this together really quick, so who did I miss? Let me know. Maybe there’ll be a part two.
JSYK, this new Girls’ Generation album is everything. Seohyun is singing her little face off. Get it girl.
Also, why didn’t y’all tell me Japandroids had the best rock album of last year? It’s like 2004 all the way through! The only things missing were a PBR, a healthy dose of shame, and hooking up in the bathroom with the guy who sells drugs of questionable quality at all of the shows.
That was my 2004 anyway. I don’t know what y’all were doing.
America is in desperate need of a girl group and since I don’t see any on the horizon, maybe the Saturdays can fill the void. I’m a rational enough person to realize that in terms of the best girl groups ever, they are really lacking.
They don’t have the voices of En Vogue or the swagger of TLC. There’s no superstar centerpiece like Destiny’s Child or The Supremes and they don’t have a consistent catalog of hits like the Sugababes. They certainly don’t have the larger-than-life personalities of the Spice Girls. My favorite k-pop groups like 2NE1 and miss A throw in dance moves and The Saturdays don’t even do that.
But they are so cute and I love them and their music is so catchy and they sound so good together and I love their outfits and they make me so happy!!!
