New Bow Wow Wow – “I Want Candy” (Kevin Shields Remix)

We’re big fans of Sofia Coppola’s consistent coaxing of soundtrack contributions from Kevin Shields, and ever since the release of the Marie Antoinette soundtracklisting, this has been the only song that’s mattered.

Bow Wow Wow ? “I Want Candy” (Kevin Shields Remix) (MP3)

Bow Wow Wow’s cover of the Strangeloves classic retains its inner Diddley through the first two verse-chorus cycles, but Kevin lays in with his typical tricks around 1:55. Sure, Shields takes greater liberties with his remix of BWW’s “Fools Rush In,” but this tastefully-tweaked pop confection is the best gift you could give your iPod to start the week.

Enjoy.
