So, why exactly was "Candy-O" by the Cars never released as a single? I mean, if it had been and just wasn't a hit, I could understand. But gosh, this song just cries out that it's a hit record. According to sources, it's since become a Classic Rock radio staple. I can't verify that part, because I don't hear it on my usual stations. However, it turned up on the station I can sometimes catch and immediately brightened my day.
