Therapeutic Tuesday : Sugar Sugar by The Archies

Do you guys know how much a glorious age it is in 70s. They are known for its famous bubblegum pop music genre. The music is easy, fun and totally groovy. The lyrics aren't bullshit like most modern songs nowadays. And they emphasis on the message of optimism in their songs. Knowing how to have fun and lead a life with happiness. Besides, who would like to advertise misery?

Although I do understand the beauty of break-up and heartbreak songs, it sometimes make us more sad than we already are. It makes us think of all the bad things that had happened and revivifying the sadness and painful memories. So, let's take a break from all the emo songs and snap your fingers and move to the groove of the good old 70s.


I think it'd pretty damn fucking stupid that people won't recognise this song. For those who've seen the cartoon itself, we were entertained by the witty and funny drama in it. This sugary bubblegum pop song was produced by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim, performed by The Archies, a band formed by a group of fictional teenagers in the television cartoon series itself, The Archie Show. This particular hit song made it stomp on the musical history by being the number one single of the year in 1969 and becoming one of the biggest hit of the bubblegum pop genre.

"Sugar, ah honey, honey,
You are my candy girl
And you got me wanting you
Honey, ah sugar, sugar
You are my candy girl
An you got me wanting you..."
