Throwback Thursday Part 20

Today is Fat Thursday in my country, therefore today's TT will present a list of songs that have something to do with sweets. It might be the title, it might be the lyrics.
Not suitable for diabetic people.

The first, the most iconic... The Archies - Sugar Sugar

Warrant - Cherry Pie. It's Warrant, so there has to be some innuendo and fun.

Roy Orbison - Candy Man

The Chordettes - Lollipop

D'Angelo - Brown Sugar

Duke Ellington - Sugar Rum Cherry (Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy)

Nat King Cole - Candy. Of course it had to be here.

Louis Prima - Banana Split For My Baby

The Runaways - Cherry Bomb. The song is from 1977, I think, and the band consists only of ladies. They were awesome live.

The Rubettes - Sugar Baby Love

The Four Tops - I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)

Dick Dale - Peppermint Man.

And of course, Tony Rich with his incredible voice sings about Sugar Hill, a stylish sensual song. The voice and sensibility the world was not ready for. *pure love*

Def Leppard - Pour Some Sugar On Me

And to sum up various dishes - Weird Al Yankovic - Eat It

Honorable mentions:

Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O'Mine
Anita Baker - Sweet Love
Madonna - Candy Perfume Girl. From her best album. Period.
Led Zeppelin - Candy Store Rock
Sade - Sweetest Taboo
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Sweet Hitch Hiker
Stevie Wonder - Sugar
