“The Candy Man” is one of those songs which never fails to lift your mood, no matter what’s going on in the world.

Many of us remember it fondly from watching the movie “Willie Wonka And The Chocolate Factory” as children…and perhaps again with our own children and grandchildren. It brings back memories of happy times and safe spaces, being surrounded by love, and smiles on children’s faces.
