About Sugartime

"Sugartime" is a popular song written by Charlie Phillips and Odis Echols and published in 1957. The biggest hit version was by the McGuire Sisters, whose recording of it topped the Most Played Jockey chart in February 1958. It was also the second number-1 Billboard single for the trio after 1954's "Sincerely." The song refers to the Jimmie Rodgers song "Honeycomb", which had been recorded a few months earlier in 1957. A version of the song by Johnny Cash, culled from his Sun Records catalogue, briefly returned to the Cashbox country chart in 1961. The chorus of the song was sampled for the title song of the Bollywood movie Dil Deke Dekho. The song's melody is remarkably similar to that of "I'm Daffy Over You," written by Chico Marx and Sol Violinsky, and performed by Marx in several films. The main melody is also reminiscent of Saint-Saens' Havanaise.
