Candy Girl

Album: Ain't That A Shame (1963)
Charted: 3
  • This innocent, Doo-Wop styled ballad finds the Four Seasons singing about how sweet a girl's love is. The "candy girl" theme would reemerge over the years, notably in the 1969 Archies hit "Sugar, Sugar," with the line, "You are my candy girl." There was also a famous New Edition song in 1983 also called "Candy Girl" that had a similar sentiment. >>

  • Most of The Four Season's hits were written by group member Bob Gaudio and/or their producer Bob Crew, but this was written by a different group member: Larry Santos.

  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaAs I recall, Candy Girl is the flip side of the VJ 45 Marlena, my second fav song and the first one I ever heard.

    It reached #13 on Billboard's R&B Singles chart...
    The week it was at #3 on the Top 100 chart, the #1 record was "Fingertips (Part 2)" by Little Stevie Wonder and at #2 was "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh (A Letter From Camp)" by Allan Sherman...
    The record's B-side, "Marlena", also made the Top 100, it reached #36 (for 2 weeks) and stayed on the chart for 8 weeks...
    Frankie Valli, born Francesco Stephen Castelluccio, celebrated his 80th birthday last month on May 3rd, 2014.
  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, CaI'm thinking about Nick Massi's vocal arrangements and that dense compact sound under
    Mr.Valli's voice...they are nice.
