9. Marcy Playground, “Sex And Candy”
Marcy Playground released their single, “Sex And Candy” in November 1997. The song was the lead single from their self-titled debut album and was described by reviewers as a hard-edged but melodic pop song which used backbeats and strong hooks. The song hit Billboard’s Modern Rock charts and spent fifteen weeks at number one. On the Hot 100 chart, however, it never made it past number eight. The song was written by John Wozniak, lead singer and guitarist for Marcy Playground.
