    She sang on Uptown, There's No Other Like My Baby, Da Doo Ron Ron, Then He Kissed Me and many other hits -- but she did not sing on He's A Rebel. The label of He's A Rebel said "Crystals" but the artists were Darlene Love & the Blossoms. The song was the Crystals' only number-one hit and it wasn't really them! Bizarre.
