Radio 67, side A, track 4: “Candy” by Iggy Pop and Kate Pierson

Iggy Pop - CandyOh, Iggy Pop and Kate Pierson, your voices are so perfect together on this song.  This might be the only song I’ve ever heard by you, Iggy Pop, at least where I knew it was you.  The only other way I knew you was from your role in “Cry Baby”, which I watched many times when my dad bought us a satellite dish and subscribed us to Showtime.  It wouldn’t surprise you, I’m sure, that once I had access to movies, I became obsessed with recording them off the TV as much as I did recording music off the radio. Maybe that’s why I stopped recording music off the radio. . .

Anyway, while I haven’t listened to this song in a long, long time, the only thing that’s changed is that I love it even more now.  And Kate Pierson, you’re so amazing.  Love to you both, and thanks for making such great candy for my ears.
