BUBBLEGUM EXTRAVAGANZA

Today -- I hate people, but I love music. So I'm gonna post a whole smattering of great bubblegum and teenybop music. This stuff -- remember it was mostly critically reviled in its own era, but in retrospect how much better does "Yummy Yummy Yummy" sound than some of the more "serious" (i.e. ponderous, boring) efforts of the era, huh?

I've decided that there's two kinds of music: "Broccoli Music" and "Ice Cream Music." Me? I like to eat my dessert first. Even if it's not good for you, and rots your teeth.















Not technically bubblegum, but man, does this rock:

Man I wish I were Suzi Quatro.

I have a girl crush on Suzi too!

The hate people/love music has been a household theme today, eh? And since music soothes what ails you, my angst for mankind has diminished a bit.

Thanks for blogging all this so that I could give my I-tunes a rest and have a song in my heart again. Fabu.

"I hate people"

...But people love you!

"I hate people"? You sound like Kirk: "I don't like everybody."

"I Can Feel Your Heartbeat" was the BEST Partridge Family song and never got enough kudos. Well done!
