The girls from Queens

The Shangri-Las

I love articles like this one, they remind of bands that I briefly became aware of, like when they get featured on the Goodfellas soundtrack, and then forget all about again until I’m reminded of how great they are:

In the not so distant past, while sitting in the chair of the person who cuts my hair, the Shangri-Las’ “Out In The Streets” came blaring over the speakers, prompting me to purchase the song immediately so I could listen to it on my way home, over and over again. The song was released in 1964, and in the 1970s was covered by both the New York Dolls and Blondie… but the original is still the way to go.
