Sweet Inspiration: Bubblegum Soul From The Seventies

Sweet Inspiration: Bubblegum Soul From The Seventies

Chart positions

This show was 4th in the global funk - soul - jazz chart, 5th in the global soul chart, 5th in the global funk chart, 6th in the global disco chart and 9th in the global pop chart.

Happy new year and I hope you will enjoy these soulful sweets from the seventies! Bubblegum or sugar pop is a genre of pop music with an upbeat sound contrived and marketed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers, which may be produced in an assembly-line process, driven by producers and often using unknown singers. In short, songs that were meant to become hits or at least meant to enjoy a large audience. So in a way the premanufactured sound of Motown (“the hit factory”) and even Philly soul could be called bubblegum for some part as well. Best example of Motown’s bubbblegum are the Jackson 5 who did not play and hardly sang themselves (the The Ron Hicklin Singers did) on their first records.
