Martin Gore explained in the May 2003 issue of D-Side magazine (translated from French):

"[Velvet Underground] has always been very important to me, they have opened my mind. When I listened to their albums for the first time, the way they had gone from the sweetest pop to the noise or to songs about drugs, it amazed me. 'Candy Says' should not have been my first choice, because I prefer the songs played by Nico like 'Femme Fatale' or 'I'll be your Mirror'. But I had already decided to cover another song that Nico had covered, 'Das Lied Vom Einsamen Mädchen'. So it seemed better to take a song that was sung by Lou Reed, and 'Candy Says' is probably my favourite Velvet track that's not been interpreted by Nico."
