Hands down, Egyptian Shumba sung by The Tammys is the best girl group song. Period. Sure, it can't directly compete with classics like, Be My Baby and Da Doo Run Run but there's something about this song that I just can't shake. It could be the catchy "shimmy shimmy shy yai missing this" line or maybe it's the wild shrieks and screams by the girls themselves. Yep, it's definitely the shrieks and screams. Listen!
Needless to say, I desperately want this on 45 but I can't find it ANYWHERE! AAAAGGGHHH!!
If you love girl groups (and guy groups from the 60's) make sure you come out to The Piston (937 Bloor St. W.) on February 24th so you won't miss a very special party. SHINDIG! Girl Groups vs. Guy Groups will make you dance as we match up The Supremes vs. The Temptations, The Shangri-Las vs. The Beatles and The Bobettes vs. The Belmonts to name a few. Fighting it out in the girl's corner will be DJ Nico and myself while DJ's Parkdale Funk and General Eclectic hold it down for the guys. Our host and referee will be none other than DJ Splattermonkey so don't miss this night for a battle where the dance floor is the true winner. Get more info on the Facebook event page, RIGHT HERE.
