September 15, 1969 #1 Billboard Pop Hit Sugar Sugar by the Archies! (via excite.com)
I was raised on sugar. My Uncle Bill, who lived with us growing up, was probably the greatest uncle a kid could have and oh man did he have a sweet tooth! He would have one of every kind of candy – chocolate, licorice, sweet tarts, dots, m&m plain and peanut, sour balls, gum, and as I remember that was every night in front of the TV! No wonder my cousins and I were running around hyped up all the time!
It’s weird to think that Uncle Bill died around the same age as I am now. Knock on wood, I am eating a hell of a lot better than he did and exercising more than he did. I don’t think that everyone in the 70’s and 80’s were as heart healthy as we all are today.
I miss ya, Uncle Bill!
I love this song Sugar Sugar! The Stingers sometimes play this at weddings when the bride and groom cut the cake.
ps Today is my 162nd video & blog. I’m in the country and tonight’s song is taking a long time to upload. I hope that at some point it will be done!
