Great tune!!!

What about Rare Earth - Get Ready, cause here I come! (1-hitter, maybe not sugary enough for bubblegum).

Hey, here's a great bubble gum song, actually Tommy Roe had a few!
- Dizzy
- Sheila

And for bubblegum, Tommy James and the Shondells did pretty well I think, what about you?
- Crimson and Clover
- Moany Moany (spelling?)
- A million more?

More bubblegum, The Partridge Family!
- I Think I Love You! (Great Beatles wannabee harpsichord solo ... definitely NOT George Martin!).

And here's a 1-hit wonder that is also bubblegum (IMO, what do you think?)
- The DeFranco Family - Heartbeat (Listen ... lub dub... lub dub ... lub dub ....)

Thanks for the thread Kevin, I love thinking about these songs!!

it's amazing that Thunderclap Newman is a one hit wonder. Their album "Hollywood Dream" is full of classics such as "The Reason" "Accidents" etc

Jimi Hendrix only had one hit on Billboard  " All Along The Watchtower " # 20 1968  which always supprises me ? likewise T.rex only managed the one hit with  " Get it On ( Bang A Gong ) # 10 1972.

Sugar, Sugar was written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim.

Andy Kim took Bubblegum into the 1970s with this...

I was listening to The Beatles and The Moody Blues at the time.  I knew this stuff existed because kids would play it on the jukebox at the pizza place.  I was convinced they were all just one group.

The older kids listened to this...

Crimson And Clover

It was Hippie indoctrination music.  Not bad, really.  But they got tagged with being Bubblegum.

Funny, I never thought of them as bubblegum. In that case I guess I like some bubblegum music after all. I've always liked their song "Hanky Panky". It reminds me of the day I decided to venture out of the driveway on my tricycle. Of course my mom freaked when she looked out the window and saw me disappearing down the road. When my dad got home she said, "Tell your father what you did today." I told him that I did the hanky panky on the road.

Hanky Panky was written by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich in 1963.  Their group called The Raindrops recorded it that year as the B-side to That Boy John. 

The Summits covered it in 1963...

The Summits - Hanky Panky



Tommy James recorded it in early 1964 for Snap! Records, but it had limited distribution in The Midwest.  In 1966, Tommy James brought the master recording to Roulette Records who released it the second time.  It went to #1 in the summer of 1966...

Tommy James - Hanky Panky



Hanky Panky is best described as "Garage Rock."  But Tommy James & The Shondells became involved with Bubblegum with records like I Think We're Alone Now, Mirage and Mony Mony.  They started writing their own songs in late 1968 turning to psychedelic rock with Crimson And Clover, Sweet Cherry Wine and Crystal Blue Persuasion.  They were invited to perform at Woodstock but declined.
