This cache is one in a series of 12 placed in the Glacial Blue Rec. Area for the 2013 Cache Bash.
The series is called "80's ONE HIT WONDERS"
"I Want Candy" was the single by pop rock group Bow Wow Wow released as the first and only single from their EP The Last of the Mohicans. For many in America, "I Want Candy" was their first introduction to young lead singer Annabella Lwin and the band. The song barely scraped the Top 50, but became an enduring new wave classic.
The enduring popularity of Bow Wow Wow's recording is partly due to the memorable video that got heavy play in the early days of MTV. This recording is highly associated with 80s pop music.
The Bow Wow Wow recording appeared on two VH1 countdowns: #86 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s and # 8 on 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s
Bow Wow Wow's recording is frequently included in collections of 80s pop music and on soundtracks for movies that take place in the 80s or in movies that want to make use of the recording's youthful, carefree tone. The recording is on the soundtrack for Blank Check, Private School, Bio-Dome, Daddy Day Care, 200 Cigarettes, High Fidelity, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, Napoleon Dynamite and Marie Antoinette in the form of a remix by Kevin Shields. It appeared on The Simpsons episode "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase".
