EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Sugar Sugar’ -The Archies

What was the number one song in the UK on 25th October 1969?

American fictional band, The Archies hit the top spot for 8 weeks with Sugar Sugar.

Like the song title suggests Sugar, Sugar is a sickly sweet pop song about love. It’s incredibly catchy and can see why it become so popular and became the best selling song of 1969. It’s a perfectly constructed pop tune, but it’s certainly not one of my top 60s tunes. I find it ever so slightly irritating.

Lyrics

Sugar, ah honey honey
You are my candy girl
And you got me wanting you
Honey, ah sugar sugar
You are my candy girl
And you’ve got me wanting you
I just can’t believe the loveliness of loving you
(I just can’t believe it’s true)
I just can’t believe the one to love this feeling to
(I just can’t believe it’s true)
Ah sugar, ah honey honey
You are my candy girl
And you’ve got me wanting you
Ah honey, ah sugar sugar
You are my candy girl
And you’ve got me wanting you
When I kissed you, girl, I knew how sweet a kiss could be
(I know how sweet a kiss can be)
Like the summer sunshine pour your sweetness over me
(Pour your sweetness over me)
Oh sugar, pour a little sugar on it honey
Pour a little sugar on it baby
I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah
Pour a little sugar on it oh yeah
Pour a little sugar on it honey
Pour a little sugar on it baby
I’m gonna make your life so sweet, yeah yeah yeah
Pour a little sugar on it honey
Ah sugar, ah honey honey
You are my candy girl
And you’ve got me wanting you
Oh honey, honey, sugar sugar
(Honey, honey, sugar sugar)
You are my candy girl
