Shangri-Las 'Long Live Our Love'

This is a classic from the best girl group in the world ever, the Shangri-Las. As this is presumably a song that was about the Vietnam War, the backgrounds seem surreal to say the least. If you don't own one Shangri-las compilation then go out and buy one now. It is the perfect sound of summer. It's hard to put down in words why the records are so great - they are like perfectly drawn teen love story comics that capture the emotions of being young and dramatic. Mary Weiss is apparently recording a solo album for Norton records. Watch this space.
