The Supremes – Where Did Our Love Go
Founded in 1959, the Supremes were arguably the most successful act to come out of Motown. Throughout their career, the group had 12 different number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, but the song that started it all is still our all-time favorite. Of course we’re talking about “Where Did Our Love Go,” which was recently selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry in 2016 due to its cultural, historic, and artistic significance.
The Archies – Sugar, Sugar
Why would we include the 1969 bubble gum anthem “Sugar, Sugar,” by the Archies on a list of songs you should show your kids? Why, in order to let them know that even our cartoons made better music than today’s artists! We’re only kidding of course. In reality, this song is just as sweet as its namesake. It’s light, it’s fun to dance to, and the music video is extremely colorful. It’s like a time capsule to our childhoods!
