I Want Candy – Unwrapping the Sugary Symbolism of Desire

At first glance, ‘I Want Candy’ by Bow Wow Wow may come across as a straightforward paean to youthful craving, a bubblegum pop tune with a catchy hook. But like the most enduring sweets in our mouth, there’s more to this candy than what meets the tongue. Released in 1982, the song still resonates with its fiery blend of punk rock energy and new wave polish, turning it into an anthem that’s more than just a sweet tooth’s confession.
