I always get a kick out of the fact that the hit song associated with Americas favourite comic book teens is co written and performed by Canadian Andy Kim.
Recorded in 1969 by a collection of session musicians and singer Ron Dante, specifically for the Saturday morning animated TV series, The Archie Show . Andy Kim addedthe background vocals. They released the song as The Archies.
The Archies’ “Sugar, Sugar” was the 1969 number-one single of the year
The song is also considered to be the most mass produced recording ever. That’s after the breakfast cereal company Post Cereal placed millions of the records on the back of their Super Sugar Crisp cereal boxes.
