    I always wanted to hose Veronica of the Archies. Didn't she eventually shack with Jughead after the two of them got hooked on the brown? Damned celebrity and rock can be so nasty...

    I guess these guys don't know that the Archies hit the Top 10 again in America in 1970 with Jingle Jangle, another million-seller.

    Having looked through the collection I can see why many are one hit wonders - thankfully. Some turned out to be interesting tracks (Spirit in the Sky), some were purely novelty (Grandad - English-only release) and others just not worth commenting on. However there was at least one that wasn't a one-hit-wonder - the Archies had 'Sugar Sugar' and 'Jingle Jangle' (US only) as major hits. Still, an interesting walk down memory lane and there are a lot more one-hit-wonders than we realize.

    Re: The Archies. Dude they had Don Kirshner producing and Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart writing the tunes. Two best song writers of the day.

    Daniel Abineri the announcer had a guest appearance as "Leo" of the "Dead Lions" in the 1984 ABC TV Series Sweet And Sour. Always wondered what happened to him - must have resurfaced in U K !!

    Never heard "GrandDad" here in the States (Thank God)! Went to the U.K. in 1966 and the #1 hit was some stupid song called "Thank You Very Much". No idea who the artist was , but it was God-awful and I think it was at the top of the charts at that time! Maybe someone remembers who it was? I love British bands, but you've had some strange ones over the years!
