Last week, we kicked off That Was A Hit?!? our new occasional series with the mission to explore the improbable success of songs that today seems positively baffling. Billboard editor Joe Levy returns to take a look at another strange hit: Candyman's 1990 song, "Knockin' Boots."
"The rhymes are terrible, the hook is ok, but the flow is awful." Levy says. "This is a song that I remember from the time, and I remember thinking...I believe in pop, public taste, the charts. Even if I don't like it I think it's telling us something. But when I heard this I remember thinking we've reached a moment that we must escape from."
