Inspired after listening to The Donnas I went hunting to see what other great Chick Rock I have in my collection. So here goes.
'Wishing Well' was their first single in 1964 and as far as I'm aware it failed to chart.
Remember (Walking In The Sand) on the other went to #5 in the US charts and #14 here in the UK.
Leader of the Pack is probably their most famous song and back in 1964 it hit the top spot in the USA, but failed to reach the top 10 in the UK (stalled at #11), though when reissued in 1973 it reached #3 and in 1976 it got to #7.
Not sure why it happened but after Leader of the Pack no more singles were issued in the UK. A real shame because some of their best songs were to come.
