Ok.....confession time... I bought the 'Sugar, Sugar' single. I even remember the B-side... 'Melody Hill'..... :blink: :P

I tried to buy it but it was no longer available so I bought their Jingle Jangle instead. Does anyone but me even remember that one ? :)

I was ten, therefore forgivable. Too be honest I didn't know what it was, but it was by the same group that's all I needed to know.

Okay, I just watched that. An early really bad music video? If you really wanted to know I could head up to the attic and hunt down the single to give you the flip side also. Unlike Dan, I don't remember what it was for this.
