"Candy" as written by Burt Bacharach, Hal David and Tim Wheeler....
This sure is some kind of party
It's so useful
Surround my life with excuses
For what I choose to lose
And my name
Doesn't look the same to me now now
No no not me now
And inside
Don't you know I feel so bad?
When I tried to turn away
To feel new again
Candy
My emotion cost me pain
Did I look the same?
Candy
When I think about the times
That I laughed away
Candy
The idea you'd cheat me
But look again
What you say
'That's my name'
And I hope that I've kept you amused
To wipe that spit right off my boots
And when I'm home and thinking in the dark
I hope I hope I hope
That none of this has had to go too far
When it gets too late
To see me any other way
And it gets so hard to hold on
To everything that I want so bad yeah yeah
Candy
When I tried to turn away
To feel new again
Candy
My emotion cost me pain
Did I look the same?
Candy
When I think about the times
That I laughed away
Candy
The idea you'd cheat me
But look again
What you say
'That's my name'

    General CommentThis is by far my most favourite Talk Talk song. Way back in the days of the inception of MTV, these guys were played frequently... even when they advertised "NO RAP" as part of their on-air existence... if only it remained true.

    This was one of the first songs to get me into electronica. I can't count the number of times I listened to this "tape"...
