    Candi - Do You Remember?

    Does anyone remember Candi? (real name Candice Pennella)



    She was a Canadian singer who scored three major hits on the charts here in 1988-1989: The dance smashes Under Your Spell and Dancing Under a Latin Moon and the ballad Love Makes No Promises



    Under the name 'Candi and the Backbeat', she released a follow-up album in 1990 called The World Just Keeps Turning. that launched three more hits with the smash hit title track as well as Missing You and Friends Forever

    Here are some wonderful sound clips for you to hear. Simply rename either file from .zip to .mp3 to hear it

    I didn't think she'd had success outside of Canada. Damn shame too, she was unbelievable gorgeous

    She was in her teens back then, but i'll bet today she's still quite the fox she ever was

    Re: Candi - Do You Remember?

    Alright so I just signed up for this forum and battled with my browser crashing 3 times on the activation link just to mention Candi. I was a wee lad when Candi was riding the Muchmusic airwaves (i'm now 25)..who cares.
    Anyway Candi had some crazy catchy early 90's pop tunes that i can't find ANYWHERE. Well that's not true, the world just keeps on turning is on kazaa but naturally it won't download. Needless to say your post is probably old and the files long gone. To wrap up this needlessly long post, do you happen to recall a song with the following lyrics (i thought it might be candi but i am rather sure its not)

    "you and me..we go good together (together) with every touch..we fall deeper in love (we fall deeper in love) you and me..we go good together (together) you're rockin' my world..you really turn me on.."

    anything?

    This is a rather old post

    I believe the song you seek is 'Good Together'. It came from the 'World Just Keeps on Turning' CD that appeared in 1990

    Under Your Spell
    Love Makes No Promises

    I do indeed remember "Dancing Under a Latin Moon"! This is a great 80s freestyle dance tune, along the lines of Expose. I remember I taped this song off the radio circa 1988, as the local radio station used to have "Hot Mix Saturday Nights" where they would play nothing but dance music!

    I don't seem to recognize half of the artists you ever mention godeltsihw. Seems that Canada listens to some very different music, from America.....

    There are many Canadian bands whom are well-known to Canada that never make it out of Canada.

    There are a few lucky ones that do, but not many:

    that makes my penis sad but no one else has it so reasonably i did not expect you to. at least you provided the confirmation i so sorely needed. her cd's are no longer manufactured so i guess maybe one day i'll find fate in a milk crate at a flea market. kathleen (young hot mitsou ripoff) had a song on the airwaves back then called ou aller. had some other follow up that got play because of her "talents" but i don't recall the name of it. wouldn't mind finding that either.

    I've been looking for her 'World Just Keeps Turning' CD for many years. It is out there as I saw it in a pawn shop once, but my mistake in not buying it then is one I have regretted for over 2 years now

    Re: Candi & the Backbeat - a must have for the 80's dance fanatic!

    Hey all.

    I remember Candi too. Lived in Canada between 1981 and 1991, so I was around to hear her music. "Under your spell" was huge, but my personal favorite was 1988's "Dancing Under A Latin Moon." That song was hot. And now that I'm older, I can see that Candi was hot too! Wonder what she's up to now?

    Btw -- for more late 80s dance/R&B, please check out my website:

    You won't regret it if you dug/dig acts like Al B. Sure! New Edition, Bell Biv Devoe and Jody Watley.

    Peace!

    Hey do you have the Candi albums available still? I'm even looking for her first self titled album with "under your spell" on it. Can't locate this ANYWHERE online. Please let me know?

    Thanks!

    I've also been hunting for "Love Makes No Promises" for over a year now.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Read. . . I'll pay for a copy of it.)

    The bidding starts at just under ten bucks.
