So my fiance and I are looking for background music for when we cut the wedding cake. Typical suggestions include Def Leppard's "Pour some sugar on me" (the lyrics seem a bit inappropriate for a family function...) "Sugar Sugar", etc. I'm looking for something unique and not overly sentimental (we want a fun rather than overly sentimental atmosphere). I tossed out the idea "C is for Cookie" since we have odd senses of humor, but I think it might be too odd. So, what are your favorite food-related songs?
Kcchan, Check out the soundtrack to "The Big Night". (The Big Night is based upon an Italian dinner that is going to make or break the restaurant.) The theme song is frivelous, melodic and people cannot resist smiling when they hear it. And, after all, it IS the Big Night, right?
Hmm...the ones that immediately come to mind, which may or may not be appropriate for wedding cake cutting:
Food, Glorious Food
Let's Call the Whole Thing Off (you say potayto, I say potahto) (just how odd is your sense of humor? ;-)
Short'nin' Bread (mama's little baby...)
Weird Al's Eat It
If I Knew You were Coming I'd Have Baked a Cake
Can she bake a cherry pie, Billy Boy
Fish heads, fish heads
Alice's Restaurant (not sure there's actually any food in there)
Scenes from an Italian Restaurant
Ice Cream by Sarah McClachlan
Sweetest Thing by U2
Cherry Pie by Warrant (not family friendly!)
Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme (not the song's real name, I'm blanking . . . )by Simon & Garfunkel
Candy Man by Christina Aguilera
Hungry Eyes by Eric Carmen
Two Pina Coladas by Garth Brooks
Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson
So we've ruled out a cheesy wedding band playing "The bride cuts the cake" to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"...?
Maybe "Mairzy Doats"?
