Artist Countdown: The Bangles Top 25 Tracks 6pm ET @VickiBangle

the_banglesThe Bangles are an American all-female pop rock band that originated in the early 1980s, scoring several hit singles during the decade. The band’s hits include “Walk Like an Egyptian”, “Manic Monday”, “Hazy Shade of Winter”, and the 1989 number-one single “Eternal Flame”.

The Bangles have contributed to several compilations, as well as to many other artists’ works: They provided the song “I Got Nothing” to the soundtrack album for the 1985 film The Goonies, and made a cameo appearance in Cyndi Lauper’s music video for “Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough”. Lauper later enlisted them for backup vocals in her 1986 hit song “Change of Heart”. In 1988, while recording his album Full Moon Fever, Tom Petty and his lead guitarist Mike Campbell called on the group to provide backing vocals for the song “Waiting for Tonight”. The song never made it to the album, but instead made the compilations Playback (1995) and Anthology: Through the Years (2000). A cover version of “Eternal Flame” was a 2001 UK No. 1 for Atomic Kitten. – Wikipedia
