The 80's girl-groups all ran together for me back then, as I had children to watch and no TV. Popular culture was something one stumbled upon. It is a great lesson, really, of how much of it will find you even if you have no set connection to it. I can tell them apart better now.* I prefer The Bangles, but this came up inexplicably in the sidebar and I watched it for the first time. Fun enough.
*Actually, I guess not. Looking around for what else they did, I had them confused with the Go-Go's.
