Girls Can’t Help It was a Urban/Dance/Pop girl group featuring the members Billie Adams, Jacqueline Bucknell, and Samantha Spencer-Lane. Their successful single was “Babydoll” which peaked at #7 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs chart in 1983. The group was brought together in 1982 and was active in London in during the early to mid 1980’s. Because Girls Can’t Help It consisted of three white females from England, music fans on both sides of the Atlantic compared them to much more successful and well known group, Bananarama. However, Girls Can’t Help It’s music was more carefree, playful. So the finished results had much more in common with the Mary Jane Girls and Vanity 6 (although Girls Can’t Help It didn’t have Vanity 6’s trashy, pornographic image). Formed in 1982, Girls Can’t Help It recorded its debut EP, Pure Wild, for Sire the following year. The album did not become mainstream pop success their label thought it would. Although, the album has since gained cult status. With no major hits, Girls Can’t Help It broke up before the end of 1984 without ever recording a full-length album.
