Day 12- A song from your preteen years
“Sex and Candy” / Marcy Playground (1997)
When this song was released in November of 1997, I was almost eleven years old. This is far too young to be listening to a song titled “Sex and Candy”. Yet it happened, frequently. After months of struggling get a good recording off of the radio, I finally had it on tape and could listen whenever I wanted.
Despite the somewhat disgusting lyrics (who wants to smell sex, honestly?), I still get really excited whenever I hear the song played. Be it during a television show (here’s looking at you Roswell) or on iTunes, you can guarantee excitement is happening. And I realize using the word excitement when posting about a song titled “Sex and Candy” is holy inappropriate Batman! But I figured it was better than giddy? Nonetheless, I still dig the song today and wish it would be featured more.
