    Love it!
    A good pop song, with a great melody that we all remember...

    Despise it, it brings up a visceral ugh! in me- why, I'm not quite sure, but it does. Bubblegum rock in general also does it to a lesser degree.

    For what it is, it does it very well. I don't think that anyone making "Sugar Sugar" was trying to make a piece of art, it was a song for kids to dance to. It's not for everyone, but when I'm in the mood for sixties pop this song makes me smile.

    When I hear it, my mind sees the little cartoon-band-loop where the mouths say the same wrong words every six seconds. And someone bang-plays an organ with their wrists arched.

    Looks like I'm in the minority,

    But I just have this nostalgia of the memory of (even as early as 6 or 7 in the mid 1960's) discovering and loving just about everything coming out of my AM radio. Thru the 1970's or so...I just loved it.

    So this song is a part of it.

    Always liked this one… would love to play it even.
    However, as a father of daughters it brings out feelings better left in dark places.

    How did that ever get past the AM censor-nazis?

    If this had come out first, the song wouldn't have been a joke. I don't think there is any song he can't make great.
