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.

The Foundations   1968

Made in the U.K.

Bubblegum was a world-wide epidemic in the late 60s and early 70s.

And there were The Jackson 5 Wannabes...

Tony DiFranco made it onto my bedroom wall, for a while anyway. I sure did buy a lot of 16 and Tiger Beat magazines. And those lyric magazines.

There were a few of us! I forgot about Andy and David. They were Andy Williams' nephews. They didn't do a thing for me. Apparently they were on an episode of the Partridge Family but they could never have competed with you-know-who.

This must have been a really low budget teen magazine. How the heck does something like this even happen?!

I thought he was pleasant enough but my friend Connie and her older sister played this record so much it developed a skip. But then we kept playing it because it sounded like he was saying, "I'm taking a sh*t". We thought that was hilarious.  roll:)

I did what I could. Oddly enough, while we were listening to records that day, I brought up The Beatles. Connie's sister told me in that older kid voice that The Beatles were just an old band. I was p*ssed about that for a long time. But she was usually quite nice to me so I got over it. I ran into their younger sister a few years ago and she told me that she never hears a Beatles song without thinking of me. She remembers listening to my sister's records when she was at my house. That made my day.

If Paul M. really did catch on fire it may have been because he was possessed. He certainly looks like it in this picture. I think Paul P. was Paul Peterson from the Donna Reed Show.

That's kind of an insulting start! Did you make it through the whole thing? LOL

Well, I guess you all had your fun with that Bobby Sherman record.


Five years before that, we had fun playing this 45...

When I'm ridin' round the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
And I'm tryin' to make some girl pregnant
Baby, better come back maybe next week
Can't you see I'm on a losing streak



Yeah, that's what they said alright!

No, I couldn't take anymore after the first minute.  It was like reading a bad greeting card.

I forgot he was on The Donna Reed Show.  I was too busy looking at Shelley Fabares.    :)

I figured you might trot out your vomiting guy for that one! And I also knew you were gonna say that about Shelley Fabares.  :)

That's a funny misheard lyric. That would actually be a must to avoid or, as I thought the song went, a mess to avoid. I always think of the opening of the movie Not Fade Away when I hear Satisfaction. I figured I'd like that movie but right from that opening I loved it.

We were convinced that one of The Stones said "pregnant" while the others said "who tells me."  We wore out a few records doing that.  We did the same with Louie, Louie.  This is what 15 year old boys did when they weren't watching The Donna Reed Show.    ;D

My sister told me all about that song! She said their high school principal would stop in to their dances to remind them not to play the record. Of course, as soon as they figured he had left the building that's just what they'd play. I heard a similar story from my neighbor about The Twist.
