    "Candyman" is Sammy Davis Jr.'s song, also actor Gene Wilder did it Willy Wonka. "Candy Man" (with a space and two caps) is Roy Orbison's song. Man, I wish he didn't die... He was still young enough to do more. My favorite Roy song is "You Got It" 1988. I do a Country Version.
  • Terry from Willmar, MnYou need to check the song out you're commenting on, Don. That's a TOTALLY different song from this Orbison classic.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyRoy's backing band released a record of their own in 1967, it was titled "Georgia Pines" and it peaked at No. 81 and stayed in the Top 100 for five weeks!!!
  • Don from Auckland, New ZealandI know that Sammy Davis Jnr [of rat pack fame] made a hit out of Candyman. From all accounts he did not want to sing it, but he did and it was one of his greatest hits
