2) In the movie, this song is sung by Bill, the candy store shopkeeper. Think about the last counter person you dealt with. We know that he or she likely didn't break into song, but did you two engage in conversation? No, I was at the bank and the teller only said hello and thank you.
3) The lyrics tell us that The Candy Man can make the world taste good. What's the last thing you ate? Was it delicious, or just OK? The last thing that I ate was a frozen Totino's pizza and it was quite tasty.
4) The most popular recording of this song was by Sammy Davis, Jr. Sammy was in a horrific car accident when he was 29 years old. His cheek and nose were broken and he lost an eye. That he survived at all left him reflective and after his hospitalization, he converted to Judaism. Do you still worship in the faith you were raised in? Yes, I still attend the church that I began attending in Junior high at times.
6) Because he spent so much of his youth on the road, living on buses, trains and hotel rooms, he loved eventually having his own kitchen and being able to cook his own meals. This weekend, will you spend much time in the kitchen? Probably quite a bit. I have a few items that I am looking to make and it will take some time.
7) Sammy enjoyed experimenting with clothes and jewelry. What about you? Do you consider yourself conservative in dress or are you fashion forward? I find that I am conservative, but that I enjoy fashion. I have been shopping for some newer items lately.
8) When he died, Sammy was in debt to the IRS. Do you handle your own taxes, or do you use the services of an accountant? I usually do my own taxes.
9) Random question: If you had to tell nothing but the truth (not even the tiniest white lie) for 24 hours, do you think you'd get yourself in trouble?
