The Archies Sugar Sugar
“Sugar, Sugar” is a merciless hook machine.
It’s a bright and shiny love song, aimed at actual toddlers,
Which tries to express nothing other than non-threatening warmth.
And it hits that mark so hard.
Furthermore an almost mechanical precision to the beat — bass, drums, handclaps, guitar-strums.
The half-mocking keyboard riff on the chorus will remain in your head through any calamity that doesn’t kill you.
And the song stabs away with its own scientifically calibrated power, building to a weirdly overwhelming crescendo.
This song does what rock ‘n’ roll is supposed to do.
It fills you up and gives you weird little dopamine rushes, and then it lingers.
Lester Bangs once called “Sugar, Sugar” “a rock & roll classic to which something like the Grateful Dead’s ‘Dark Star’ can’t hold a candle,”
and Bangs also goaded Lou Reed into admitting that he wished he’d written it.
