Candy Everyone Wants

If lust and hate is the candy,
If blood and love tastes so sweet,
Then we give 'em what they want.

No one sings peppy songs with a message like my girl Natalie Merchant. This version with R.E.M's Michael Stipe is from President Clintons Innaugural Ball. What a great message that resonates more now than ever. And is there anyone more adorable than Natalie when she gets all 'whirling dervish' with her dancing. I loves me some Selena but Natalie is my DREAM GIRL.

This official video for the song is one of my all time favorite attempts music makes to make socially relevant commentary. I think this one hits the nail right on the head.
