Hey hounds,

Party time. I need food themed music, preferably classic rock and roll.

First off is always Cheeseburger in Paradise.

What else do you have?

                        1. I'm all about Coltrane, Brubeck, Ella, Chet Baker, etc. Throw in some French artists, opera and classical - and I'm all about NOT what you're looking for. :( :(

                          Sorry, but the Cheeseburger song is about all I know. I will say, some playlists suggested here I will definitely check out!
