* BlackSheepHit: Darn near all of them, actually. The Bangles write the vast majority of their own songs, but of their 4 best-charting singles, "Manic Monday" was written by Prince, and as noted below, sounds like it. "Walk Like An Egyptian" was a novelty song. "Hazy Shade of Winter" was a cover, and "Eternal Flame" was the only ballad on ''Everything''. None of these hits are really "typical" Bangles songs.

This was deleted without comment or justification. I can't see any reason why it doesn't apply.

The Bangles are an all-female band started in the [[TheEighties early 1980s]]. Their genre can be summed up as a combination of rock, pop, PowerPop and jangle pop, with a pronounced influence from Music/TheByrds and TheSixties rock that lumped them in with the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paisley_Underground Paisley Underground]] movement. The band consists of Debbi Peterson (vocals, drums), Vicki Peterson (vocals, guitar) and Susanna Hoffs (vocals, guitar), with former members Annette Zilinksas (vocals, bass) and [[GenderBlenderName Michael Steele]] (vocals, bass). Their first album, the Beatlesque {{Power Pop}}py ''All Over the Place'' earned them some good reviews but most importantly the attention of Music/{{Prince}}, who wrote "Manic Monday" for them. The song and its accompanying album ''Different Light'' departed from the band's sixties rock sound in favour of state-of-the-art Music/NewWave pop and more outside songwriters, to great commercial success and another hit single ("Walk Like an Egyptian"). Then, intra-band tensions worsened, and after releasing one more album, ''Everything'', they split in 1989.
