We haven’t had a Flashback Friday in a while, so let’s bring it back with The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby”
The Ronettes was an American 1960s girl group from New York City. One of the most popular groups from that period, they placed more than eight songs on the Billboard Hot 100, five of which became top forty hits.
The trio from Spanish Harlem consisted of lead singer Veronica Bennett (later known as Ronnie Spector), her older sister Estelle Bennett, and their cousin Nedra Talley. The girls had sung together since they were teenagers, when they were known as “The Darling Sisters.”
