4. Marcy Playground - "Sex and Candy"
It's been 13 years since Marcy Playground released "Sex and Candy," and America still has some questions: What is Disco Lemonade? What kind of candy does this woman smell like? Why are you hanging around downtown by yourself near a woman who emits such smells? Might this be a woman of the night who has sprayed herself with some sort of candy-like perfume to mask the scents of her most recent job? What makes you think it's a dream? We'll probably never know the answers to these questions, but that doesn't mean Marcy Playground aren't still cashing in on their lone hit. They spent the summer on the road with a 1990s super-bill, along with Sugar Ray, Everclear, Lit and the Gin Blossoms. We haven't looked at any setlists, but it's probably a safe bet that Marcy Playground found some space for "Sex and Candy" in their set.
