So how's the new year diet going?
It's St Valentine's Day this weekend, I imagine we will all take a day off from this particular resolution and either celebrate or commiserate. Candy is dandy, as they say. (They also say liquor is quicker, but that's another matter)*.
I Want Candy was written by Bert Berns and The Strangeloves - Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein and Richard Gottehrer - in 1965, although if we dig a little deeper, we find the original music was by the great master Bo Diddley himself.
