Did you do this?
As a teenager in the 1960s, I often sang along with songs as they played on the radio. My favorite sing-along songs were tunes sung by girl groups like The Crystals, The Shangri-Las, The Chiffons, The Supremes, and The Shirelles.
It never occurred to me that merrily singing along to lyrics like “One fine day, you’re gonna want me for your girl” was a wee bit incongruous. I never thought twice about doing all the hand motions while singing “Ooh, baby, baby, where did our love go?” and imagining myself wearing a floor-length sequins evening gown.
Didn’t the other guys in the neighborhood do that?
I discovered that the guys didn’t do that, but that the girls in the neighborhood did!
I was a little confused, but I liked playing the girl’s part, so I continued doing so. And the rest is her story.
