“Billboard” has put together a list of ‘The 100 Greatest Girl Group Songs of All Time,’ covering everything from The Chantels from the late-’50s to current groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix.
Unlike some “Billboard” lists, it isn’t based on chart numbers or other data . . . just the opinions of their editorial staff.
To be eligible, the ‘girl groups’ had to be all-female, with at least three members . . . and they had to be primarily vocal in nature. So they didn’t include full on bands like The Go-Go’s or Haim, just like how The Cars or Vampire Weekend wouldn’t be considered “boy bands.” Roz & Mocha debate this list, as they totally feel this list is missing some songs, and the ones on this list are in the wrong order!

Here’s the Top 20:

1. “Be My Baby”, The Ronettes, 1963

2. “Creep”, TLC, 1994

3. “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?”, The Shirelles, 1961
