Food Related Music

Okay, so we know a lot of us listen to music while we cook, but how many food related songs can we come up with. I'll start and include a link to the video:

      1. The first two that come to mind are Rapper's Delight by Sugar Hill Gang (this was popular when I was an exchange student in Paraguay (South America) in 1980-81 and other teens wanted me to translate it?!

        I wouldn't recommend listening to it while cooking. The other is the old classic "On Top of Spaghetti". There are also some Weird Al Yankovic songs: http://www.com-www.com/weirdal/addict...

              I love Christine Lavin! And don't forget the one where she's on that horrible date and prays she will "choke on a pork chop and conveniently die ..." oh! *remembered* That's "What Was I Thinking?" a favorite of mine. :-)
