HELP ME WITH MY FOOD SONG PROJECT!!!!
I'm looking for songs that either are about food, or reference food heavily. I have enjoyed reading a few really fun threads about food songs. I'm compiling a list for a specific purpose, and have combed the web for ideas - there are lots out there, so I don't really need links, I need some specific suggestions......so I thought I would throw this out to the Chowhounds!
Specifically, I am in need of ethnic songs, or ....even if they are in a different language. So, are there any Vietnamese folk/pop songs that celebrate food? Puerto Rican? El Salvadoran? Guatemalan? Russian? Native American/Inuit/Eskimo? Hawaiian? Filipino? Chinese? Swedish? See what I am getting at?
Any and all help is EXTREMELY appreciated!!!
re: small h
Hey - thanks for replying - to clarify - I have read all the posts, here and elsewhere, and am in the process of compiling a list of those songs that meet my needs.
And, I am not necessarily seeking songs in other languages, just trying to dig a little deeper and see if there are songs that illuminate a more diverse cultural landscape. As I said, I am in need of ethnic songs, EVEN IF (not only if) they are in another language.
I got one from another source - "Si no me dan de beber, lloro" which is a great x-mas Puerto Rican song about going to a party and asking for a drink, or else the person will cry. This is what I am after....whether in English, Spanish, or other languages.
OK - I think if we discus bun bo hue and enchiladas and entrecote and macarons and chorizo and siu mye that this request isn't too far off - just asking for impressions and remembrances, shared in English, of songs that might related to foods other than the ones already mentioned. Just digging!
How about the remakes from Mad magazine ( or maybe it was Wired )
To the tune of "Downtown"
When you eat meat, but hate the meat that your eating then you always know
It's so unnerving when they're constantly serving at an eating spot
It may be called chopped sirloin or hamburger or beef patty
No matter what they call it, it is overcooked and fatty
What can you do
something something something...stand up on the table, sound off to you waiter and
Cant remember the rest
I think there was one about chopped liver too
( Tune of Moon River )
Chopped liver...onions on the side, my social life something something
My friends shun me, they out run me,...
The smell of my breath is slow death, sad but true...
Not what you're looking for?
