History

"Sugar, Sugar" was the number one single of 1969, according to Billboard, a feat yet to be duplicated by any other fictional band. It spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 from September 20, 1969 and eight weeks at the top of the UK singles chart. The following year, in 1970, singer Wilson Pickett hit the U.S. Top Forty with his own version of the song. (Pickett also had covered the number one single of 1968, "Hey Jude" by The Beatles, with his top-40 version in late 1968.) In the United Kingdom, singer/producer Jonathan King had a top 20 hit with his rock cover of it under the name Sakkarin. Later, it was covered by Tom Jones, Ike & Tina Turner, Bob Marley & the Wailers and The Germs. Studio group Stars on 45 included it in their 1981 "Stars on 45 Medley".
