“Fools” was a Top 10 record for these five New York teens in the Fifties, with disputes over who actually wrote the song having raged since the Eighties. But what’s certain is this: Frankie Lymon was a boy soprano with a rare gift, he improvised some of his parts, and this arrangement of the group’s signature song influenced an entire generation of vocal groups, particularly its girl singers. Diana Ross took “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” into the Top 10 again in 1981, and Ronnie Spector of the Ronettes wrote in her autobiography, “I know exactly where I got my voice. Frankie Lymon. If he hadn’t made a record called ‘Why Do Fools Fall in Love?’ I wouldn’t be sitting here writing this today.” Denise Sullivan, Rolling Stone.
