‘The Candy Man’ was recorded by music legend Sammy Davis, Jr. back in April, 1972 after the song originally appeared a year earlier in the film ‘Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory’. Sammy’s version proved to be a big hit in America, spending three weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
Those of us here in Britain are currently hearing another of Sammy Davis, Jr.’s songs, I’ve Gotta Be Me, in SKY Q’s Fluid Viewing advert.
