A long time ago in the kingdom of candy

Gruff Rhys: Candylion

What does Candylion sound like you ask? Candylion sounds like everything you'd expect a song called Candylion to sound like. There are tinkling splashes of xylophone and breezy fiddle flourishes, Gruff Rhys soothing vocals and whimsical lyrics about life in "the kingdom of candy." But then just as everything is merrily going along, this ominous line comes in:

Dreams can come true. Nightmares can also.

Maybe not all is well in the world of our sugary feline protagonist. I wonder if Candylion lives anywhere near Candy Mountain. That might explain it.
