Point of order HG. Is the Jackson 5 really Bubblegum? To me, a big part of the bubblegumness of Bubblegum acts is that they're adults singing simple catchy songs with naive lyrics. You expect kids singing to sound childish. True Bubblegum is grown men and women singing about yummy love in their tummies and chewy chewy things of uncertain origin.

Other than the pitch of his voice, Michael Jackson did not sound childish at all.  His phrasing was polished and his dance moves were synchronized perfectly.  He learned a lot by watching these Temptations films....

But The Jackson 5's songs were aimed at pre- and young teens.  At the time we considered that to be bubblegum music.
