Bittersweet Christmas candy

Every holiday season this catchy little song pops up.

And it always makes me laugh. Partly for the words, partly for the goofy/exhuberant 80s bass line, and partly because it reminds me of The Waitresses’ other hit, I Know What Boys Like.

But it always makes me a little sad too; the lead singer, Patty Donahue, died about ten years later of lung cancer, at the age of 40. (Starting to appear smoking isn’t good for you.)
