Ear Candy is the ninth studio album by Australian-American pop singer Helen Reddy, released on May 1977 by Capitol Records. The album included a modern take on the doo-wop genre ("Long Distance Love"), a Cajun number that gave the Melbourne native her first and only appearance on Billboard magazine's Country chart ("Laissez les Bontemps Rouler") and a dark self-parody on which Reddy proclaims: "I don't take no shit from nobody" ("Baby, I'm a Star" - not to be confused with the Prince song of the same name. Unprecedented for a Helen Reddy album, half of the songs recorded for Ear Candy were co-written by Reddy herself, including the second single: "The Happy Girls", Reddy's first self-penned A-side single since "I am Woman": however it was the first single: a remake of the 1964 Cilla Black hit "You're My World", which would afford Reddy a final Top 40 hit.
