Top 40 Songs About Candy

The best hit songs about candy and sweet treats; sweet confections in song.

Just in time for Halloween or Easter (or any day) we have a candy mix tape for you, or a candy song play-list for your MP3 player. A lot of pop & rocks songs have been written and sung about candy, and we sifted through the bins to find the sweetest hits. These are the Top 40 songs about Candy:


1 - Sugar Sugar by the Archies, it even sounds sweet! Pop music doesn't get any more luscious than this. It was the #1 single of 1969, outselling all other hits, and has been remade and reused dozens of times since them. Funny fact: the Archies were a fictional band on Saturday morning cartoons, but their music was real... and real sweet.
