"Sugar Sugar", released on May 24, 1969, became the biggest hymn of the bubblegum pop genre that flourished from 1968 to 1973. Originally The Archies was an American fictional band that featured in the animated TV series, The Archies Show. The music featured in the series was recorded by session musicians, including Ron Dante on lead vocals and Toni Wine on duet and backing vocals. Together they provided the voices of The Archies using multitracking. "Sugar Sugar" went to no.1 in many countries and was the most successful song of the year 1969 in the United States and United Kingdom. On the Global Chart it reached no.4 on the year-end hitlist 1969, but with the additional success in 1970 and a total of 9.974.000 points, it was also worldwide the most successful single release of the year 1969.
