Sir: Two resounding Bronx cheers to Peter Popham ("The teenies vote for snog 'n' run", 12 March). The Toys recorded "A Lover's Concerto", not "Symphony for Love". Far worse, how could he trace the history of girl groups without even mentioning the Shangri-las? Mistresses of teen angst, they are without rival as the greatest girl group in pop history and would chew up and spit out Geri Halliwell and Co before breakfast. Any two lines from "Give Him a Great Big Kiss" could blow the entire Spice canon out of the water. "When I say I'm in love, you best believe I'm in Love - L-U-V!"
