The Parliaments - That Was My Girl 

This is George Clinton’s 50’s doo-wop band. Eventually the same band got into soul, innovated funk, and provided an eternal backbeat to west coast hip hop. 

I know I’ve said this before, but George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic need to be given the same acclaim as The Beatles or The Beach Boys for starting as simple pop bands and emerging into experimental artists carving the future of music.
