No, you're not alone because I love Doo Wop too.
I enjoyed watching the PBS Doo Wop 50 and 51 specials a few years back. So much so that I bought the specials to watch again at my leisure. I have noticed that a lot of the 50s group names began with 'The'. The Knockouts singing 'Lorraine', The Cleftones, The Crests, The Duprees, The Del Vikings, The Diamonds, The Earls, The Edsels, The Ronettes, The Platters, and the list goes on and on. The music is great
