Description

"Candyman" is a song written and produced by English rock band Siouxsie & the Banshees. It was released as the second single from Siouxsie & the Banshees' seventh studio album Tinderbox.

The song is an aggressive guitar-based number with heavy Post-punk influences. Although its title suggests wholesome imagery à la "The Candy Man", Sioux's lyrics describe an altogether different kind of "Candyman" (à la Ronald Clark O'Bryan): ("...Sickly sweet, his poison seeks / For the young ones who don't understand / The danger in his hands / With a jaundiced wink see his cunning slink / Oh trust in me my pretty one / Come walk with me my helpless one...").

"Candyman" became Siouxsie & the Banshees' thirteenth top-forty hit, peaking at number thirty-four in the UK singles chart.

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem. I'll wait until I hear back from them. I'd hate to delete all those good videos so I'd rather wait a while longer. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
