We continue to remember the most popular and influential girl groups of the eighties
Music of the 80s remains the best of its kind, and many music lovers will agree with this statement (and not only "olds"but also the current generation of listeners). It's rousing melodies, it's cheeky tests, it's a sweet reminder of youth (and for some, it's also just chic). vibe, atmosphere, which you really want to dive into ...) In a word, this is really a golden era in the music industry, when artists earned a big name for themselves not only with their image, but also with their voice. As for the insanely popular women's groups at that time, to be honest, they were created and popularized on the whole according to one principle: the producers selected beautiful girls, only one of whom could sing ... She, in fact, was the face of the band, the project. There were and are exceptions to this day, when indeed all members of the group are unique and talented! However… this exception is extremely rare. Actually, that's not what we're talking about.
