Sugar, Sugar: Laurice helps us believe in love (or at least everlasting lust)
by Drew Rowsome -
Hitmeisters Jeff Barry and Andy Kim wrote "Sugar, Sugar" for the cartoon band The Archies. It went straight to number one and was subsequently covered by Tom Jones, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Wilson Pickett, Bob Marley and now, drum roll, gay superstar Laurice.
As the obligatory cover song on Laurice's album GAYDAR, "Sugar, Sugar" is a fun throwaway. Little did we know of the depth of meaning that the lyrics have for the campy comeback queen of the century. The video for Laurice's rendition of "Sugar, Sugar" will make you laugh, make you cry, make you want to spearhead a write-in campaign to have Laurice perform at the VMAs (or at least the MMVAs). And you'll be touched by the finale when Laurice's true message about love and acceptance is presented.
Without further ado, here is the world premiere of Laurice's video for the single "Sugar, Sugar."
