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:

Pulling Mussels (From the Shell) by Squeeze

    1. "Making guacamole all night long", by the Texas Tornados, featuring Flaco Jimenez on the accordion.

      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: (unreleased
        and the better known

        Chicken Soup from Really Rosie by Carole King

        Tom Lehrer's "Thanksgiving"

              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. :-)
