Who couldn't love the Dixie Cups' "Chapel Of
Love"? It exploded on the airwaves and pop
charts mid-British Invasion and held the
Number One position for several weeks.
The Dixie Cups, hailing from New Orleans,
still sing and perform today.

"Chapel of Love" was great, but with their 1965 hit, "Iko Iko," the Dixie Cups became the first act to introduce the Mardi Gras Indian culture to the world at large. I remember seeing them perform in on the Lloyd Thaxton Show in Indian costumes and wondering what the lyrics meant and why the costumes. It would seem that this should be deemed influencial enough to warrant induction into the Hall of Fame.

Gag me! "Chapel of Love" is the worst song of the 20th century - I'd rather listen to "Revolution 9"!
