I Want Candy was the Bow Wow Wow's song that inspired me to make this pink-sweet illustration. First time I heard it was in Sofia Coppola's Marie-Antoinette and I was totally fascinated with its rhythm and lyrics. I decided to do some research and I found out that the Bow Wow Wow's version was a cover, and that, besides them, there was an endless list of famous bands that covered the song: Melanie C (for the film "I Want Candy"), Aaron Carter, Good Charlotte, Billie, among others. But I can tell you that the original version is by far one of the best, along with the Bow Wow Wow's one, and that Melanie C's version is one of the worst (it was quite a disappointment since I used to be a Spice Girls' fan when I was a teenager).
Les dejo la versión original de esta canción, tocada por la banda The Strangeloves (1965):
