Bette Midler Is Releasing an Album of Songs by Girl Groups

Latest

Bette! It’s like you’ve decided to take the best scene in movie history and replace your costars with yourself and then turn that into an album! What an idea!

Bette Midler, as Billboard reports, hasn’t put out an album since 2006 but her new one will be a doozy. It’s called It’s the Girls and as Bette tweeted this morning, it will feature a lot of “Harmonies and Hair!!”

Midler’s working with Mark Shaiman, the famed Broadway composer who you may also know from his work on the underrated film Down with Love. The tracklist for It’s the Girls is as follows:

1. “Be My Baby” Originally performed by The Ronettes
2. “One Fine Day” Originally performed by The Chiffons
3. “Bei Mir Bist Du Schön” Originally performed by The Andrews Sisters
4. “Baby It’s You” Originally performed by The Shirelles
5. “Tell Him” Originally performed by The Exciters
6. “He’s Sure The Boy I Love” (duet with Darlene Love) Originally performed by The Crystals
7. “Mr. Sandman” Originally performed by The Chordettes
8. “Come And Get These Memories” Originally performed by Martha & The Vandellas
9. “Too Many Fish In The Sea” Originally performed by The Marvelettes
10. “Teach Me Tonight” Originally performed by The DeCastro Sisters
11. “Waterfalls” Originally performed by TLC
12. “You Can’t Hurry Love” Originally performed by The Supremes
13. “Give Him A Great Big Kiss” Originally performed by The Shangri-Las
14. “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” Originally performed by The Shirelles
15. “It’s The Girl” Originally performed by The Boswell Sisters

Please note the appearance of Darlene Love

The final straw: this album comes out on my birthday. FATE.
