Bubblegum pop is a genre of popmusic with an
upbeat sound contrived and marketed to appeal to
pre-teens and teenagers, that may be produced in
an assembly-line process, driven by producers and
often using unknown singers. Bubblegum's classic
period ran from 1967 to 1972. A second wave of
bubblegum started two years later and ran until 1977

designer clothes), lyrics focused on teenage issues
such as (sexual/emotional) love/relationships, finding
yourself, friendships, coming of age, fitting in, and
