Sugar Sugar


I haven't posted in a long time as I have been REALLY busy with assignments and school work. Now I am counting down to our Spring holidays - only one week to go!

This weekend my family and I went to the city to do some shopping. We got a little sidetracked and decided to go and have an ice-cream! Naturally, I had to photograph the moment as it was perfect for the latest Kids Click theme, 'Delicious'.

Thank you for having me, Simoney!

Big Al certainly enjoyed his ice-cream, which was caramel flavoured. I loved mine too, which was chocolate and caramel.

All this sugar eating got me inspired to post a song about sugary sweets, and the song Sugar Sugar by The Archies was the perfect choice. I originally didn't know of a song about sugar or ice-cream, so my Mum suggested this song. Upon playing it, I recognised it from the Bee Movie.

The Archies are virtual garage band formed by Archie AndrewsReggie Mantle and Jughead Jones, a group of fictional characters from the animated TV series, The Archie ShowRon Dante, Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge performed the vocals for the characters.

Sugar Sugar was the 'group's' most successful song, becoming one of the biggest hits of the bubblegum pop genre of 1968 to 1972. It reached number one on the pop charts in 1969, sold over six million copies and was awarded a gold disc. It was ranked in Billboard's Hot 100 as the number one song of 1969, the only time a fictional band has ever claimed this spot. I can see why the song was so popular, because the beat and words are very catchy.

I hope you like Sugar Sugar as much as I do, and that all the adults out there enjoy reminiscing about the days of The Archies as much as my mum did...

Linking with my Mum's Sunday Song linky party.

Thank you for having me, Mum!

Well, thank you for visiting my blog! Please come back soon! 

I hope your day is sweet,

I used to watch this show all of the time Maddy and I know all the words to this song! Thanks for linking it up.

Have a great week at school. Just think; this time next week we will be at the beach!
Love from Mum.

Oh Maddy! I was not that many years older than you are now when this first came out and I loved it, so thank for reviving a memory for me this weekend.
