“I Want Candy” was written and originally recorded in 1965 by a group from Australia called the Strangeloves. English new wave group Bow Wow Wow brought the song back to the radio airwaves and MTV in 1982. Bow Wow Wow’s lead singer, Annabelle Lwin, was only 15 when the single and video were released.
