Candy Everybody Wants

Now, today is David's birthday, but it's also the birthday of Sir Iggy Pop. Happy 63rd, James Osterberg!

The greatest thing he ever did was not have it in his ear before, but rather his 1990 duet "Candy" with Kate Pierson. Ms. Pierson is one of our national treasures, and just simply doesn't get used enough.

Those jerks at Virgin/EMI disabled embedding, but you can watch the video here. Please do click through, turn up your volume, and enjoy.

Truly, it's up there with "Islands in the Stream" and "It's So Easy" from Pete's Dragon.

Thanks Iggy, for the memories.
