I know what you’re thinking… “Wait, that song is by The Smiths. There are no women in that band!” You would be correct. However, Dum Dum Girls covered this song on their He Gets Me High EP released in March of 2011. I must say, covering The Smiths is a risky move but these women nailed it. Sune Rose Wagner, singer/guitarist of the Raveonettes, and Richard Gottehrer, the man who wrote both “My Boyfriend’s Back” and “I Want Candy,” worked with singer Dee Dee to produce the EP. Talk about a dream team. Dum Dum Girls are exceptionally good mixing a retro sound with a new alternative spin. This song is the perfect example of their potential to excel in a category of dark candy pop music.
