The Chiffons (not the Shirelles) sang "One Fine Day" - and I only know this because it's one of my favorite songs!

An interesting factoid - the Shirelles and the Chiffons both released "Tonight's the Night." The lead singer of the Shirelles cowrote the song, so of course they recorded it, but the manager of the Chiffons thought it would be good publicity for the two groups to "fight it out on the charts." Both versions were released on September 12, 1960.

The Shirelles version reached #39 but the Chiffons reached only #76.

In defense of the Chiffons, their lead singer was only 14 at the time and the two back up singers were 13 - and "Tonight's the Night" was their first single.

Two years later, the Chiffons reached #1 with "One Fine Day."

See, you really CAN find anything on the internet!!

:D

I recently saw Kristin perform in a small club in Pittsburgh with my wife. It was really cool because at the beginning they announced that there would be no smoking because she just found out she was pregnant. My wife really like her a lot, so that's just about the only thing we listen to in the car.

I only saw Kristin Hersh with Throwing Muses when they opened up for REM on the Green tour.

Good show then. Never a big fan of her solo though.

Hmmm. :?

Hasn't been a whole lot of music since the early 90's i've even liked. (at least not on radio around here)

Gonna have to give this one some thought...

How do people know so much music and so many bands with wide ranges of style? Sheesh! :shock:
