Day 87 of 365: a year in songs and photos
Song: 50 Cent, Candy Shop
Well, he isn’t exactly singing about candy in that song. But you knew that.
I’m officially sick of winter. Historically, when I get sick of winter and it’s many shades of gray, I start shooting things like candy and crayons. We were in Walgreens tonight and the candy aisle just called to me. As I was picking out treats to shoot – keeping in mind what would get eaten and what wouldn’t – I ran through the plethora of songs I could use tonight. So many tunes with words like candy and sweet…..it would be too easy to use I Want Candy or U2′s Sweetest Thing.
There’s no reason for you to know why I picked this particular song (insert winking smiley face here).
Actually, we’re spending the rest of the night switching between watching the NHL skills contests and playing Halo.
I’ll take you to the candy shop
Boy one taste of what I got
I’ll have you spending all you got
Keep going ’til you hit the spot
I don’t think hockey and halo is what 50 Cent had in mind when he wrote that one.
