I wonder how many people started singing a song just as soon as they heard the royal baby's new name? You know I did! The song "Sugar Sugar" by the Archies was a big hit in 1967. It was the number one US single OF THE YEAR! I knew it was a big hit in the USA but what about in England? Turns out ,it was at number one for 8 weeks in the UK! I learned today that the lead singer was Ron Dante and that HE was the lead singer for "Leader of the Laundromat", a parody of "Leader of the Pack". (My Dad loved parodies and we had that record, I remember it well.) It amused me to know that Ron Dante sang on both of those records!
"Sugar Sugar" might sound dated today but it was a great song when you were on roller skates. When I hear that song, I am transported back to the early 70's and I can feel myself skating to the beat of that song. (Yes, it was a big hit in 1969 but with a catchy tune like that, it was still being played at roller rinks.)
Ah music! I hope that I never run out of songs in my head!
"His shirts always came back brown...brown...brown."!!
My Dad always liked funny songs!
Happy Spring to you all.
