Written deep within the source code of rock and rock lies the subject of this edition of the Ear Candy Update, Doo Wop. Doo Wop, as it was defined in the '50s and '60s still exists as it has been nearly entirely incorporated into rock and roll. The Beatles, Beach Boys, Frank Zappa, The Ramones, The Misfits, Billy Joel, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have all incorporated Doo Wop themes, tempos, and styles. But this is not a celebration of those who use the style, this is a celebration of those who invented it. So here's to those boys huddled around trash-can fires, here's to the boys with the slicked hair clapping their hands and popping their fingers. We owe you one.
