Yeah, that didn't help matters.

Ringo rushed it. It would have been better if it was slowed down some.

Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart were cool.  Borderline bubblegum, but cool anyway.  They wrote good songs for The Monkees as did Neil Diamond.  I like him too.

No, I don't experience retroperistalsis and emesis when I hear I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight.

There certainly are a lot of names for it. I agree that "Goody Goody Gumdrops" could bring it on, though. That band is the reason I didn't think I liked bubblegum music.

Interesting story with Hang On Sloopy.  Originally titled My Girl Sloopy, it was written by Wes Farrell and Bert Russell for a jazz singer/pianist named Dorothy Sloop who's stage name was Sloopy...





It was first recorded by The Vibrations in 1964...

Vibrations - "My Girl Sloopy"


A lot of calypso in there!




The Yardbirds recorded My Girl Sloopy in early 1965...

The Yardbirds - My Girl Sloopy - 1965 45rpm

A bit of calypso in there.

I remember The McCoy's Hang On Sloopy being a big hit in the Fall of 1965.  It predated Bubblegum though.  Rick Derringer and The McCoy's recorded the vocals to the instrumental track recorded by an Australian group called The Strangeloves (who were really from New York).  The lyrics were a bit provocative and not aimed at kids just like those of Gloria recorded by Van Morrison and Them a year before.  Gloria was banned on some radio stations...

The McCoys recorded Hang On Sloopy with three verses, but it was edited down to two verses for the single and the LP.

Here's the full version...

Sugar, Sugar is great!

To my ears, there was also a large overlap between Bubblegum and One-Hit-Wonders. What do you think?

60's: Green Tambourine (Lemon Pipers), Judy In Disguise (John Fred and his Playboy Band), I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night (Electric Prunes), Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye (Steam), More Today than Yesterday (Spiral Staircase), Smile a Little Smile for Me (Flying Machine), In the Year 2525 (Zager and Evans), Israelites (Desmond Decker and the Aces), Love Can Make You Happy (Mercy)

70's: TIghter, Tighter (Alive and Kicking), Ride Captain Ride (Blues Image), Montego Bay (Bobby Bloom), Love Grows Where my Rosemary Goes (Edison Lighthouse), Spirit in the Sky (Norman Greenbaum), Reflections of My Life (Marmalade), In the Summertime (Mungo Jerry), Venus (Shocking Blue), My Baby Loves Lovin (White Plains), All Right Now (Free), Oo-ooh Child (The Five Stairsteps), My Belle Amie (The Tea Set), Indiana Wants Me (R. Dean Taylor), Rose Garden (Lynn Anderson), Hey There Lonely Girl (Eddie Holman), Smiling Faces Sometimes (The Undisputed Truth), Mr. Big Stuff (Jean Knight), Chick-A-Boom (Daddy Dewdrop), Put Your Hand (Ocean), One Toke Over the Line (Brewer and Shipley), Precious and Few (Climax), Oh Babe What Would You Say (Hurricane Smith - our very own Norman from Abbey Road ... Beatles first engineer!), My Maria (B.W. Stevenson), Brother Louie (Stories), Dancing in the Moonlight (King Harvest), The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia (Vickie Lawrence), Smokin' in the Boys Room (Brownsville Station), Rock On (David Essex), Eres Tu (Mocedades), I Can Help (Billy Swan), The Night Chicago Died (Paper Lace), Hooked on a Feeling (Blue Swede), Shaving Cream (Bennie Bell), The Hustle (Van McCoy and the Soul City Symphony), Chevy Van (Sammy Johns), Feelings (Morris Albert), Fooled Around and Fell in Love (Elvin Bishop), Play that Funky Music (Wild Cherry), Afternoon Delight (Starland Vocal Band), Smoke from a Distant Fire (Sanford-Townshend band), Black Betty (Ram Jam), You Light Up My Life (Debbie Boone), Hot Child in the City (Nick Gilder), Undercover Angel (Alan O'Day), Because the Night (Pattie Smith), Just When I Needed You Most (Randy VanWarmer), I Don't Like Mondays (Boomtown Rats), Video Killed the Radio Star (the Buggles), Drivers Seat (Sniff'n the Tears), Cruel to be Kind (Nick Lowe).

I got these one hit wonders off this http://www.onehitwondercentral.com/70s.cfm?start=161&sortby=song_year&orderby=ASC site. I skipped a lot that I hadn't heard of, and left some off because I know they had other hits in other genres.

THey're not ALL bubblegum, but (especially in the early to mid-70s), there sure was a lot of overlap!

The soundtrack of my life!  (WABC 770 AM in NYC in my case).
Great list of songs Alexis, We used to listen to every one of them on the  radio back in the day.
