This edit is from the original mono single release. This video is deliberately messed up to avoid a copyright strike. Sorry, no video footage exists, so this video is an "artistic impression".* A beautiful stereo remix by johnreynolds71 is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjFYfBJOKtU You really may like its sound. "Then He Kissed Me" was released as a single in September 1963 by The Crystals. It is a narrative of a young woman's encounter, romance, and eventual marriage with a fellow youth. The single is one of The Crystals' most remembered songs. The lead vocal was sung by Dolores "LaLa" Brooks. In the United States the single peaked at number six, in the United Kingdom at number four, in Holland at number two. Again the Dutch show taste.... The single was The Crystals' third single to chart in the top ten in the United States and their second to reach the top ten in the United Kingdom. In 2004, this song was #493 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Pitchfork Media placed it at number 18 on its list of "The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s". The original Gold Star Studios session. TWO drummers: Hal Blaine and Earl Palmer. Never too many musicians for Phil Spector. And the great strings arranged by Sid Sharp. Jack "Specs" Nitzche conducted the session. (Thank you Jeffrey Beals.) THEN HE KISSED ME (Phil Spector, Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry) Well, he walked up to me and he asked me if I wanted to dance. He looked kinda nice and so I said I might take a chance. When he danced he held me tight And when he walked me home that night All the stars were shining bright And then he kissed me. Each time I saw him I couldn't wait to see him again. I wanted to let him know that he was more than a friend. I didn't know just what to do So I whispered I love you And he said that he loved me too And then he kissed me. He kissed me in a way that I've never been kissed before, He kissed me in a way that I wanna be kissed forever more. I knew that he was mine so I gave him all the love taht I had And one day he took me home to meet his mon and his dad. Then he asked me to be his bride And always be right by his side. I felt so happy I almost cried And then he kissed me. Then he asked me to be his bride And always be right by his side. I felt so happy I almost cried And then he kissed me. And then he kissed me. And then he kissed me. ®© SME ®© HorusMusic ®© Believe (All rights reserved by the copyright owners.

Their 1961–1964 chart hits, including "There's No Other (Like My Baby)", "Uptown", "He's Sure the Boy I Love", "He's a Rebel", "Da Doo Ron Ron (When He Walked Me Home)" and "Then He Kissed Me", featured three successive female lead singers, and were all produced by Phil Spector. The latter three songs were originally ranked #267, #114, and #493, respectively, on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. However, two songs were dropped from the magazine's 2010 update. In 1961, Barbara Alston, Mary Thomas, Dolores "Dee Dee" Kenniebrew, Myrna Giraud and Patricia "Patsy" Wright formed the Crystals with the help of Benny Wells, Barbara's uncle. Soon, the quintet signed with Phil Spector's label Philles Records. Their first hit, the gospel-influenced "There's No Other (Like My Baby)", debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1961. Originally the B-side to "Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby" (featuring Wright on lead), the stirring pop ballad was co-written by Spector and Leroy Bates and featured Barbara Alston on vocals. The recording was made late on the evening of the high school prom at Central Commercial High School, the school attended by Barbara, Mary, and Myrna; they were still wearing their prom dresses, as they had come to the studio straight from the event. The single reached number 20 in January 1962, marking an auspicious debut for Spector's Philles label. Brill Building songwriters Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil's "Uptown" gave the girls their second radio hit. Having an ethnic flavor with flamenco guitar and castanets, the more uptempo "Uptown" featured Alston once again emoting convincingly over a boy, though this time with class issues woven into the story. After the success of "Uptown", a pregnant Giraud was replaced by Dolores "LaLa" Brooks. The controversial subject matter of the next single, 1962's "He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)" (written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin and sung by Alston), resulted in limited airplay with the track only "bubbling under" the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #123. Barbara Alston later disowned the track, stating it was “absolutely, positively, the one record that none of us liked.
THIS IS THE ORIGINAL UPLOAD !!!!! so far the audio has been lifted and used on 2 other peoples channel :-/ NOTE the video footage isnt then he kissed me But as no footage of the girls sing that is avalible, the footage used is just to represent the girls instead of a black screen. Using the original recording edited and dubbed into a backing track, to create a new stereo version of the classic spector recording
This highly influential 60s US female vocal group were the product of Phil Spector, for his pioneering Philles record label. They, along with the Ronettes, were one of the definitive 'wall of sound' groups of the 60s. They came together after meeting in the legendary Brill Building where the group was preparing demos for the Aberbach's famous publishing company Hill and Range. The line-up comprised Dee Dee Kennibrew (Dolores Henry, Brooklyn, New York, USA), La La Brooks (b. Brooklyn, New York, USA), Pat Wright (b. Brooklyn, New York, USA), Mary Thomas (b. Brooklyn, New York, USA) and Barbara Alston, who was their manager's niece. Spector was impressed and produced the debut 'There's No Other (Like My Baby)' in 1961. At this time Spector was developing his unique sound by mixing numerous layers of vocals and instruments onto one mono track. The blurred result was demonstrated on 'Uptown' but it was taken to its glorious extreme on Gene Pitney's song 'He's A Rebel'. The latter featured the lead vocals of Darlene Wright (Love), and, as Spector owned the name, he could use whoever he wanted as the Crystals. It became a number 1 single in the USA (UK number 19). La la Brooks returned to the lead vocal on two further hits that have since become timeless classics, 'Da Doo Ron Ron' and 'Then He Kissed Me', both major hits in 1963. The Beach Boys attempted a Spector-like production with their own version, 'Then I Kissed Her', in 1967. The Crystals were soon overtaken when their mentor devoted more time to the Ronettes, and consequently their career faltered. New members passed through, including Frances Collins, and the band was prematurely banished to the nostalgia circuit. Source: The Encyclopedia of Popular Music by Colin Larkin.
