60's Bubblegum vs. 70's Bubblegum (was Re: WODS jingles, songs-in-a-row)

Since Sugar Sugar first charted on 8/16/69 and spent 18 weeks
on the charts, it could be argued that it is "technically" a 60's song
because it fell off the charts just 2 weeks before New Year's Eve.

I find it hard to believe that in the first week of 1970, bubblegum
music changed drastically.

However, to be fair, I would suspect there may be more concise
definitions of 70's bubblegum vs. 60's bubblegum which would
highlight/explain the intrinsic differences between the two genres
as well as provide examples of songs that demonstrate where the
line of demarcation exists.  Can someone share with us?
