Tough Girls

Happy birthday, Mary Weiss.  She was the lead singer of The Shangri-Las.  They charted a handful of times from 1964 to 1966 (all while Mary and the others were teenagers), and are best known for "Leader Of The Pack" and "Remember (Walking In The Sand)."

But maybe my favorite numbers of theirs is a B-side, a classic in the masochistic world of girl groups, "Easier To Cry."  Even the cruddy production adds to the drama.
