The Cookies - Songs


The Cookies were a girl group with a somewhat convoluted history that became famous in the early 1960s. Formed in 1954 in Brooklyn, the group started out as a trio and there were some personnel changes along the way. They had their first big hit in 1956 with "In Paradise," which reached #9 on the R&B charts. In the late 1950s, most of the original Cookies members became the backup singers for Ray Charles, known as the Raeletts.

In 1961, the Cookies reformed with some new group members that included Earl-Jean McCrea. It was this newer lineup that charted with "Chains" (1962), "Don't Say Nothin' Bad (About My Baby)" (1963), "Girls Grow Up Faster Than Boys" (1964), and several other songs from the early 1960s as listed below. In 1964, Earl-Jean McCrea went solo and charted with the original version of "I'm Into Something Good."
