Listen Up: Paolo Nutini's "Candy"

Listen Up: Paolo Nutini's "Candy"

Over time I've heard praise here and there for Scottish musician Paolo Nutini, but I never really paid attention. Now his newest album Sunny Side Up is topping UK album charts (with Black Eyed Peas topping the singles list), and I figure it's high time I sit down and take a real listen.

Young Nutini is only 22, but he has the voice of an old soul. Something about this song "Candy" reminds me of music from decades ago, a kind of folksy sound that reminds me of the '60s, with some rockin' drum crescendos and a bit of darkness woven in. It's not particularly memorable as a tune, but it's lovely and sweet (like . . . wait for it . . . candy) while it lasts.

To take a listen and tell me what you think,

Oh Paolo. I listened to his first album *obsessively* for over a year (plus I live in Scotland, and you just couldn't avoid him here. I'm not complaining.), and recently had to slow down only because it now reminds me too much of a time in my life I don't like to think about. But it's so, so, SO good. You should definitely listen to it Buzz, although I like the new stuff I prefer the "bare" quality of his previous songs. I saw him at a festival last summer; I was expecting a slightly cheesy act but he was amazing! His musicians are great, he's a fantastic performer, and I spent the whole concert dancing with the rest of the people in the front row. :P (heck I was so busy having fun I didn't even realise I'd just lost the belt to my new dress)

You should check out the video for 'Candy'..trust me, you might fall in lovePlus, the rest of his album is really good, I have most of the songs on my itunes, maybe the whole album if I'm not correct, and yea it's very reminiscent of the oldies

It's a very sweet song, no pun intended. But it evokes another kind of sweetness apart from candy. I really like it.
