Candy-O" is a song by the American rock band The Cars, the title track of their 1979 album Candy-O. It was written by the band's songwriter Ric Ocasek, was produced by Roy Thomas Baker, and features Cars bassist Benjamin Orr on lead vocals. The style of the song is perhaps more guitar-heavy and less new wave-sounding than many Cars songs. The chorus is minimal, with only one line ("Candy-O, I need you so"), leading to loud guitar and drum fills dividing the rhythm less evenly.

I dug the first album a bit but I thought the Cars were kinda like rockers masquerading as new-wavers or something. You know, dumb kid stuff, mostly. So I'm listening to the original vinyl, and think the song that used to stick out the most for me was "Lust for Kicks". The Cars is very "unfinished" sounding, in a great way; it has loads of "holes" in it. On Candy O they tended to fill the holes a lot more (this is by Roy's own description as well) so the toms come FLYING out at you on the fills relative to the rest of the drum perspective.

Candy-O is the second studio album by the American rock band The Cars, released in 1979. On this album, the Cars take a small step to the left. While remaining a solidly mainstream new wave band (as they would throughout their career), the group gets a bit artier on Candy-O, with impressive results. Like many of their peers, the band began to accentuate the angular, c aspect of their sound, exploiting its inorganic quality for maximum irony and detachment.
