Patti Smith and the Ronettes--different women from different eras, but they all rock. "Because the Night" is a dynamite pop song and Patti Smith pushed many boundaries in her lyrics and approach to music. In the early 60's, the Ronettes were--unlike the Shirelles and the Crystals--the "tougher" and "gutsier" side of the girl group sound. They should have been much bigger and earned many more hits than they did. Congratulations to both--well-deserved!
