Candy-O

Judging by its lyrics, the title track of the Cars' second album, Candy-O, appears to be about a man smitten by a woman (as evidenced by the song's repeated line, "Candy-O, I need you so"). But the Boston-based group put forth a different theory as to meaning behind the New Wave pop song's title. When asked if the "O" in "Candy-O" stood for "Ocasek" or "Orr" — the surnames of the Cars' two singers, Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr — Ocasek replied, "The 'O' stands for 'obnoxious.'"
