“I Want Candy,” written by Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein, and Richard Gottehrer and recorded by them as The Strangleloves, pretending to be three Australian brothers raised on a sheep farm. The novelty record became a hit, and the trio put together a touring band of studio musicians to back them in concert.
The tune was reprised by the UK’s Bow Wow Wow in 1982, produced by Malcolm McLaren.
