Bubblegum pop (also known as bubblegum rock, bubblegum music, or simply bubblegum) is a genre of pop music whose classical period ran from 1967 to 1972.[1] The chief characteristics of the genre are that it is pop music contrived and marketed to appeal to pre-teens; is produced in an assembly-line process, driven by producers and using faceless singers; and has an intangible, upbeat "bubblegum" sound.[1] The songs typically have singalong choruses, seemingly childlike themes and a contrived innocence, occasionally combined with an undercurrent of sexual double entendre.[2] They also have a catchy melody, simple chords, simple harmonies, danceable beats, and repetitive riffs or "hooks". The song lyrics often concern romantic love, but are notable for their frequent reference to sugary food, including sugar, honey, jelly and marmalade.[1] Garage punk is a subgenre of punk rock that is heavily influenced by garage rock. ...

The genre was predominantly a singles phenomenon rather than album-oriented and because many acts were manufactured in the studio using session musicians, a large number of bubblegum songs were by one-hit wonders.[3] Among the best-known acts of bubblegum's golden era are 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Ohio Express, The Archies, The Lemon Pipers and The Partridge Family.

Cross-marketing with cereal and bubblegum manufacturers also strengthened the link between bubblegum songs and confectionery. Cardboard records by The Archies, Banana Splits, The Jackson 5, The Monkees, Josie and the Pussycats, H.R. Pufnstuf and other acts were included on cereal boxes in the late 1960s and early 1970s, while acts including The Brady Bunch had their own brands of chewing gum as a result of licensing deals with TV networks and record companies.[1] It has been suggested that Candy be merged into this article or section. ...

Producers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz have claimed credit for coining the term "bubblegum music", saying that when they discussed their target audience, they decided it was "teenagers, the young kids. And at the time we used to be chewing bubblegum and my partner and I used to look at it and laugh and say, 'Ah, this is like bubblegum music'." The term was seized upon by Buddah Records label executive Neil Bogart. Music writer and bubblegum historian Bill Pitzonka confirmed the claim, telling Goldmine magazine: "That's when bubblegum crystallized into an actual camp. Kasenetz and Katz really crystallized it when they came up with the term themselves and that nice little analogy. And Neil Bogart, being the marketing person he was, just crammed it down the throats of people. That's really the point at which bubblegum took off."[2] Buddah Records (now known as Buddha Records for spelling corrections of Buddha) was founded in 1967 by promotor Neil Bogart in New York City. ...

From about 1972 the genre began to evolve into the teen idol phenomenon in the US and glam rock in Britain. Bubblegum left a powerful legacy in the later rise of prefabricated boy bands and girl bands such as The Spice Girls and Take That.[1] Several prolific bubblegum creators including Bogart and producer Giorgio Moroder moved on to disco, leading to the rise of acts including Donna Summer and The Village People. For other uses, see Teen idol (disambiguation). ...

Origins

The birth of bubblegum is generally dated from the success in 1968 of The Lemon Pipers' "Green Tambourine", 1910 Fruitgum Company's "Simon Says" and The Ohio Express' "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy", but music critics have identified novelty songs including The Dixie Cups' "Iko Iko" and Patti Page's "(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?" as possible precursors.[2]. The Lemon Pipers were a 1960s bubblegum/psychedelic pop band from Cincinnati, Ohio, known chiefly for their song Green Tambourine, which reached number one in the United States in 1968. ...

A breeding ground for the genre has also been found in the field of 1960s garage punk, the songs of which shared an overriding simplicity with bubblegum. Garage and bubblegum groups were also both generally singles acts. Several garage punk bands, including Shadows of Knight, later recorded bubblegum tracks, while Ohio Express, one of the major 1960s bubblegum bands, began their recording career with punk-rooted tunes.[2] Garage punk is a subgenre of punk rock that is heavily influenced by garage rock. ...

Tommy James and the Shondells are seen as a major influence, with such songs as "Hanky Panky", but critics are divided on one possible major bubblegum band prototype: The Monkees. Although the band began as a prefabricated, fictional rock group concocted to sell records and TV advertising time, the band later staged a coup and wrested creative control from their creators.[2] Tommy James and the Shondells was a rock and roll group, initially formed in 1964 as The Shondells. ...

The success of The Lemon Pipers' "Green Tambourine" (US No.1, February 1968) was followed by a wave of bubblegum delivered by the Super K Productions team of Kasenetz and Katz, who had scored hits a year earlier with the Music Explosion's "Little Bit o' Soul" (No. 2, May) and The Ohio Express's "Beg, Borrow and Steal" (No. 29, October).

In early 1968 the pair signed New Jersey band Jeckyll and the Hydes, changed the band name to 1910 Fruitgum Company and released two singles that made the Billboard Hot 100 – "Simon Says" (No.4, February 1968) and "May I Take a Giant Step (Into Your Heart)" (No. 63). In May 1968 The Ohio Express (who had also undergone an enforced name change from Sir Timothy and the Royals) scored a No.4 hit with "Yummy Yummy Yummy". The song had been written by teenager Joey Levine and accomplished songwriter Artie Resnick and released with vocals by Levine (originally recorded as a guide vocal for Ohio Express) and backing by session musicians. The song was released as an Ohio Express single without Levine's knowledge. The band released two follow-ups, "Down at Lulu's" (No. 33, August 1968) and "Chewy Chewy" (No. 15, October 1968), both of which also featured the vocals of Levine, who had never met the band, and neither featuring any members of Ohio Express.

Kasenetz and Katz developed a strong relationship with Buddah Records, releasing a series of hits by 1910 Fruitgum Company, Ohio Express and one-offs such as "Quick Joey Small" by The Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus (another front for the same batch of Levine-fronted studio players) and "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin" by another manufactured band, Crazy Elephant.

The dominance of the Kasenetz-Katz team was challenged from mid-1968 by the trio of Bogart – who by then had resigned from Buddah Record – music publisher Don Kirshner and "Hanky Panky"'s co-author, Brill Building writer/producer Jeff Barry. A year earlier Kirshner had been removed from the music team behind The Monkees, a made-for-TV pop band that finally rebelled against his strict creative controls. Since 1966 singles and albums had been released under the name of The Monkees, despite usually having no more than one member contributing vocals. Kirshner envisaged a manufactured group over which he would have even greater control: a cartoon band, The Archies. He enlisted Barry and Andy Kim as songwriters, Ron Dante as vocalist and session musicians including Hugh McCracken, Gary Chester, Chuck Rainey and Ron Frangipane to provide the music.[4] The fictional band's "Sugar Sugar" was the best-selling single of 1969 and the band scored five more Top 100 singles including "Bang Shang-a-Lang" and "Jingle Jangle."

1980s

The 1980s saw few mainstream bubblegum-esque acts in the US and UK. In Latin America, bubblegum acts such as Timbiriche, Menudo, Los Chicos, Las Cheris, and Los Chamos were hugely popular. The 1980 single "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da" introduced The Police to an international audience with elements of bubblegum and in 1988 lead singer Joe Elliott proclaimed "I'm hot, sticky sweet/from my head to my feet, yeah" in Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me", a pop-metal hit with influence from "Sugar Sugar."
