Some of you are going to hate me for this . . . but do you remember bubblegum pop music? I do, with a cringe or two as I think of some groups who were very popular in the late 1960’s and early to mid 1970’s. One of them was a British outfit calling themselves “Middle Of The Road“. I went to one of their live performances in South Africa in the early 1970’s, for reasons that escape my adult self (put it down to what was, at the time, a less than mature musical taste, if you like!).
At any rate, they were reasonably successful in Britain and its former colonies, and had some airtime here in the USA. Here’s a selection of some of their hits. Remember to chew gum while you listen. (Not!)
Amazingly, they’re still around! Here’s a live performance from 2016 in Berlin.
Ah, memories . . . What were your favorite bubblegum pop groups and songs, way back when? Let us know in Comments.
