23min of Ska : Candy is Dandy

If you say you don’t like candy, I’ll tell you that you’re a liar. I don’t like any food more than candy. I’m in my thirties and I still go crazy for sweets and stuff. Nothings better than a huge Mr. Goodbar and a tall glass or Tang. So yeah, that’s what inspired this latest episode, candy, sweets, sugar, stuff like that. Man, oh man, do I like candy.

Toots & the Maytals – Sweet & Dandy (Sweet & Dandy ’68)
One Groovy Coconut – Deep Dark Chocolate (More Like This Than That ’98)
Millie Small – My Boy Lollypop (My Boy Lollypop/Something’s Gotta Be Done ’64)
Bigger Thomas – Sugar, Sugar (Ska Cover to Cover ’11)
the Caroloregians – Biscuit Serenade (Fat is Back ’11)
the Busters – Candy (Dead or Alive ’93)
the Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Chocolate Pudding (Kinder Words ’94)
Yum!Yum!ORANGE – Mr. Candy (Candy Candy Candy ? ’08)
