Favorite Bubble Gum 70's Tunes

OK, anyone here have a favorite bubble-gummy tune from the 60's or 1970's?

Maybe a tune you don't like to admit to????

I do....

1) Incense & Peppermints
2) In the Year 2525
3) Red Rubber Ball



Come on, you know you got one.....or two....

I think it was the 1910 Fruitgum Company and I'm not totally certain, but I think they may have been the origin of the term "bubble gum music".

They also gave us such memorable tunes as "Indian Giver", "Goody-Goody Gumdrops", "Bubble Gum World", "Sticky, Sticky" and more! I wonder where they are today? The world needs their musical genius! :D

Thank you Dale...
Indian giver was just beyond the reach of my memory. I sort of remembered it was about indians and all I could remember was Idian reservation, but that was by Paul Revere and the Raiders!

LOL

Such good "guilty pleasure" memories!

I wouldn't necessarily call them "bubblgum", but definitely easy listening pop.

A lot of tunes by The Carpenters, especially "Goodbye to Love".

Jimmy Webb songs by various artists, particularly "Wichita Lineman" and "Up, Up, and Away".

A lot of Herb Alpert, especially "Casino Royale".

"Snowbird" as sung by Anne Murray.

Petula Clark's renditions of "Downtown" and "Don't Sleep on the Subway".

Some of those might have drawn contempt from hipsters back in the day, but they aren't really embarrassments now. For that I'll have to go with...










"Arizona" performed by Bobby Sherman (I think)

"Sugar" by the Archies is the only true bubble-gum I remember that was not mentioned,but I also enjoyed "You're so vain" and "Blue Bayou" by Linda Ronstadt.

Oh, I don't know if I'd call Incense and Peppermints quite bubble gum. The words, maybe, but the music had a kind of pscychedelic feel to it. If you consider the time, it was kind of hip. I always liked that song myself, but probably my favorite of that era was "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night".

2525 had a little bit of mystical sound to it, too. I think it has to be like totally major key to count as bubblegum!

I can go with Red Rubber Ball as bubble gum, though!

Some stuff was fun to sing though, even if it was bubble gum. What was that song that went "Little Willie, Willie won't go home"? That was pure bubble gum, but we used to sit around and sing stuff like that when we were bored. Drove the older folks nuts!

HOLY CRAP! LOL. . .yea, I remember them just being called SWEET. They also recorded "Fox on the run", "ballroom blitz" and "Love is like oxygen". They had a few other hits as well.

Every once in a while I'll load Limewire to see if I can find old pop tunes from when I was a kid. Once in a while I'll find something. -Scott
