#9 R&B, #9 Pop
The Jelly Beans were only together from their inception in High School in 1962 until their breakup in 1965 — but Alma Brewer, Elyse and Maxine Herbert, Diane Taylor and Charlie Thomas made their mark on Popular music with ther only top ten hit – “I Wanna Love Him So Bad.” This was the groups first single, of only three, on Lieber & Stoller’s Red Bird Records. It’s a classic that I love …especially that bass as sung by Taylor.
Composed by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, this song has that “Brilll Bulding Sound’ that I love! Don’t you?
