"Some Candy Talking" as written by William Adam Reid and James Reid....
I'm going down to the place tonight
To see if I can get a taste tonight
A taste of something warm and sweet
That shivers your bones and rises to your heat

I'm going down to the place tonight
The damp and hungry place tonight
Should all the stars shine in the sky
They couldn't outshine your sparkling eyes
But it's so hard to be the one
To touch and tease and to do it all for fun
But it's too much for a young heart to take
Cause hearts are the easiest things you could break

And I talk to the filth and I walk to the door
I'm knee deep in myself
But I want to get more of that stuff
Of that stuff

Some candy talking

And I want
And I want
Some candy talking

Some candy talk
I love the way she's walking
I love the way she's talking
It's just the way she's walking
It's just the way she's talking

And I need
All that stuff
Give me some
Of that stuff
I want your candy. I want your candy
And I need
Give me some
Of your stuff
Give me some
I want your candy. I want your candy.
I want your candy. I want your candy.
I want stuff

    General CommentYou could pick any Mary Chain song to talk about, it doesn't really matter. The imagery in them all is the same, their perfect graps of the iconography of rock'n'roll.
    Boy girl, sin and redemption, saved and lost, sweets and drugs, Coke and coke, big blue skies, big fat American cars, roads in the desert, walks in the rain, God and prayer, guns and blues.
    The iconography of the songs as spot on as the Dylan sunglasses and hair, the motorcycle gang black leather jackets, and the 50s semi-acoustic Gibsons.

    General CommentFrom the Wikipedia:

    In a 2005 interview with Jim Reid featured in Filter Magazine, Reid noted that "'Some Candy Talking' had nothing to do with drugs, actually. It was just something a radio DJ picked up on, and it was banned in all the major radio stations in the UK."

    General CommentIn the same vein as Just Like Honey, it uses oral sex as a metaphor for putting up with unpleasant aspects of a relationship because you want that person badly enough. Love can be addictive enough that you're willing to put yourself through a lot for that person. The candy is the good part of the relationship that he craves (both sexually and emotionally).

    General Commentobviously inspired by the Velvet Underground... the drum pattern towards the end of the song is a VU trick that works wonders... now as to what the song refers to : heroin, in a bit of sensuous way.

    General CommentI don't know exactly what it's about, but it is really sad in a good way. The Jesus and Mary Chain sometimes reminds me of country music, especially this song. I just mean the way it sounds, not the lyrics.

    General Commenti don't think this is a song about scoring herion. they never took herion although they did take quite a few other things from what i've read in interviews.
    i think its about fatal attraction. not knowing why you love someone
