Description: "Sugar, Sugar" is a pop song written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim. It was a four-week 1969 number-one hit single by fictional characters The Archies. Produced by Jeff Barry, the song was originally released on the album Everything's Archie. The album is the product of a group of studio musicians managed by Don Kirshner. Ron Dante's lead vocals were accompanied by those of Toni Wine (who sang the line "I'm gonna make your life so sweet"), Andy Kim, and Ellie Greenwich. Together they provided the voices of the various Archies using multitracking. Ray Stevens, the comic singer, provided the hand claps to the song.The Archies' "Sugar, Sugar" was the 1969 number-one single of the year. It spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 from September 20, 1969 and eight weeks at the top of the UK singles chart. The song lists at #63 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All Time. It also peaked at one in the South African Singles Chart. On February 5, 2006, "Sugar, Sugar" was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, as co-writer Andy Kim is originally from Montreal, Quebec.The song was earlier offered to The Monkees, although additional rumors that it was recorded using session musicians with Davy Jones providing all the vocals, but never released, are false. Don Kirshner has said that Mike Nesmith put his fist through the wall of the Beverley Hills hotel refusing to do "Sugar, Sugar." Jones confirmed that Kirshner had offered it to them, but stated they turned it down, and he never recorded it. The band thought it seemed cheesy and at that point they were looking to mature their sound. However, Monkees archival expert Andrew Sandoval has suggested that the band may instead actually have been offered a tune called "Sugar Man", but with the passage of time the parties involved simply mis-remembered it as being "Sugar, Sugar", in large part because it made a better anecdote.

The single was released in 1969, backed with "Melody Hill," and quickly rose to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained for 4 weeks, giving The Archies their first gold record ("Jingle Jangle" was their second gold record), and becoming the #1 song for 1969 according to Billboard magazine. While this music segment was originally created for broadcast on "The Archie Comedy Hour" in 1969, it also made it's way to the CBS-TV prime-time special "The Archie Sugar, Sugar - Jingle Jangle Show" in 1970, which was mostly a repeat of the earlier CBS-TV prime-time special "Archie And His New Pals" from 1969 with both music clips thrown in at the end. This clip was also broadcast on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1969. At this time, this music segment is only 1 of 4 music segments from "The Archie Comedy Hour" that have been found.

PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads between multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948's oldies classics. LINK: tinyurl.com Another creation by rock impresario Don Kirshner, who unleashed The Monkees on an unsuspecting world, The Archies were never a group, in the commonly accepted sense of the word--the voices for this animated cartoon series were supplied by session singers (among them Andy Kim, who later went on to a respectable solo career) and the songs were written by well-regarded songwriters (among them Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry, who also produced many of them). After some minor hits, the "group" blasted into the public eye with the surprise hit "Sugar Sugar", which for some reason shot to #1 in both the US and UK. A follow-up song, "Jingle Jangle", managed to break into the top 10 but didn't cop the #1 spot. IMDb Mini Biography By: firstname.lastname@example.org Trivia: There was no actual group called "The Archies", because the "group" was created as characters on a TV cartoon show. Some of the artists who provided the voices, both on records and on the show, were Ron Dante, Ellie Greenwich, Toni Wine, Andy Kim, and Jeff Barry (who also wrote and produced many of their songs).
Jughead Jones of the Archies does an odd hip-hop rap version of "Sugar Sugar" in this rare TV clip. The Archies become real-life characters in the 1990 TV movie "Return to Riverdale." Archie Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Jughead Jones, and Reggie Mantle come to life as well as Big Ethel and Principal Waldo Weatherbee. It's an interesting attempt to adapt the comic strip characters, imaging them as adults 15 years after their high school graduation.
The Archies sing their #1 hit of 1969.
