Default Doo-wop music

Anyone here into the oldies?

i have a soft spot for doo-wop music, it's so sweet and harmonious but sadly idk alot of Doo-wop music which is why i made this thread so i can find more about it through you guys.

I'll start with a fairly popular one


(He called her a whore btw)

OH, 2 things

plz 2 vids max per post
Also feel free to talk about any doo-wop group you want but plz put a song of the group as an exmpl

QUICK TIP:

Most of this music is copyright protected but if you're lucky you'll find a live version of the song that is not.

I'm frankly not a huge Doo-wop fan, but Ronnie James Dio started off doing it. Fun little fact I had to share.

There is nothing on earth that means less to me, since as far back as the '70's, as the potential for any style of music to get me laid.

How does "thats how you got the ladies" implies you have to sleep with them?

Doo Wop genre and singing talent of a male was a very attractive quality and considered charming during that time.

@Realtalk

thank you, but plz limit your post to 2 vids per post if you can.

Also, what did you mean you don't consider the above as Doo-wop music? if it's not doo wop what is it called?
