  1. Probably not what you are looking for - I like Ween - tastes good on the bun. A bit alternative LOL

    1. Ther are lots of songs about food. I did this about ten years ago. Hope I can remember...

      'Let's Eat' - Nick Lowe from an early Stiff Records collection
      'Chicken Cordon Blues' - Steve Goodman
      'Home Grown Tomatoes' - Guy Clark
      'Eggs and Sausage' - Tom Waits
      'Cheeseburger in Paradise' - Jimmy Buffet
      'Strawberry Jam' - Michelle Shocked
      Skin and Bones -The Kinks
      Jambalaya - Dr. John (and many others)
      Eggplant - Michael Franks

      Having a tough time remembering, but there's a starter list. I'll take a look and try to come up with a few others

      1. "Strawberry Fields Forever" - Beatles
        "Raspberry Beret" - Prince
        "Suzanne" - Leonard Cohen (line: And she feeds you tea & oranges that come all the way from China)
        "Ice Cream" - Sarah McLachlan
        "Banana Pancakes" - Jack Johnson
        "Caramel" - Suzanne Vega
        "Lemon" - U2
        "Red Red Wine" - UB40
        "Shade and Honey" - Sparklehorse
        "Cinnamon Girl" - Neil Young

        There are also lots of suggestive songs about cherries. Haha.

          Have you ever REALLY listened to the words of Raspberry Beret? It ain't about food.

            This is true. OP! Strike from the list!

          2. re: spades

            1. re: ibstatguy

              hmm Neil Diamond - Porcupine Pie, Crunchy Granola Suite, Soggy Pretzels

              I second Cibo Matto! For a party mix, I'd particularly recommend Birthday Cake or Know Your Chicken.

            2. Not my personal favorite, but I would think any food mix should include Jimmy Buffett's "Cheeseburger in Paradise."

                I am such a parrot head. On my tenth birthday we all dances up and down the stairs to this song.
