Candy

I've been meaning for ages to make a compilation of songs called Candy. So, I have Ash, Elvis Costello, JAMC, The Presidents, PWEI, @Candy Says' (which version?), I don't know if I should include 'I want Candy?' or if I should stick to its use as a name.

So, has anyone got any more?

Candy by Iggy Pop.
Candy Perfume Girl by Madonna.

Plus there's Candy Girl by Babybird... I believe there's also a Jackson 5 song of the same name but I don't know if it's the same song!

I think you could almost do an entire album of just remixes of 'I want Candy...'

Marcy Playground (a band from where I am! They're named after one of the schools in Minneapolis) has a great one called 'Sex and Candy' which was really popular around here, but I don't know if it got a lot of airplay in the UK.

Hurm... a quick search of www.cddb.com turns up a little under 4000 hits for albums with candy in a track title. *grin* I think you've got quite a selection to work with!

... Cool idea tho. I've been doing some compilations, perhaps I'll try for one witha similar theme. Thanks!

Does 'Kandy Pop' by Bis count?
Even though it's really annoying? ~g~

Not quite music geek enough for this one.

Isn't there a Bow Wow Wow song with Candy in the title?

Ah, it's another I Want Candy cover.

IIRC it's the good one, and should be included if poss...

My god, I don't know who did the original; I only know the Bow Wow Wow version. Upon whom did they improve?

The Strangeloves (60s US group). Never heard the original, I admit.

The Count Bishops did a very very good version too.

It's the definitive one for me. It should be played more!

Oh, and - god, the horror - there's always "Candy Girl" by New Edition.

I did *not* just admit to knowing that song, by the way.

Is this song the same as the identically named songs by Babybird and The Jackson 5 I wonder...?

I doubt - although I'm by no means sure - that Babybird would cover New Edition...unless they did something really strange with it. Jackson Five, however, very likely, since IIRC 'Candy Girl' was just a ripoff of 'ABC' anyway...

Since I seem to be destined here to suggest the *appalling* songs, there's also always 'Candyman' by Aqua. ~g~

No, the Baby Bird song is definitely unrelated to any other of the same name. And, as I recall, also a little ruder in its implications, in spite of the included denial.

I'm shocked.

I'm astonished.

Paul's even already replied and he hasn't suggested "Candyland" by Morphine.

I'm disgusted.

I hadn't noticed it wasn't there, it's one of the songs that inspired the idea of the compilation...

Fair enough.

I stand (roughly speaking) corrected, then.

Candy Tree by All About Eve?

As (potentially) the worlds biggest AAE fan I can't believe I forgot about that one... Doh!
