As we search for the silver (lining), we might recall that it was on this date in 1972 that Sammy Davis, Jr’s cover of “The Candy Man” began it’s 21-day run at #1 on the pop chart.¬† The song had, of course, originally appeared in the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory; it was written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley specifically for the film.
