Hungry for a Song?

Have you ever been afflicted with a phrase that strikes a chord?  A chord which compels you to bust out in song and share it with anyone who happens to be in the room with you?  My BFF is infamous for this!

When so inspired, it can happen to me too .... usually while I'm in the kitchen.  With that said, here are my top 10 food/drink songs that jettison off my tongue and into the ears of any audience who might be stuck in the same room, I mean lucky enough to hear it.  I apologize in advance if a bad one gets stuck in your head!

Orange Crush?
  1. Lips Like Sugar - Echo & the Bunnymen
  2. Tea for Two - From the musical No, No Nanette (Go Nat King Cole!)
  3. Black Coffee in Bed - Squeeze
  4. American Pie - Don McClean
  5. Blueberry Hill - Fats Dominoe
  6. Banana Boat Song - Harry Belafonte
  7. Orange Crush - R.E.M.
  8. Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
  9. Good Ship Lollipop - Shirley Temple
  10. The Candy Man - Sammy Davis, Jr.
Honorable Mention:  
  1. The Spam Song - Monty Python
My thanks to YouTube for all the links above.

Now that I've equipped you for any future trivia night, what songs have I missed?


  1. Oh how I love this Sly! Great post!!
    I've got some others to add. How about:

    Shoofly Pie and Apple Pan Dowdy makes your eyes light up and your tummy say howdy!

    I love coffee, I love tea. I love the Java Jive and it loves me.

    Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner....

    I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...

    Mean Mr. Mustard...

    Sugar, sugar...ah honey, honey.

    Sugar pie, honey bunch. You know that I love you!

    Food glorious food! Ham, eggs and clam chower...!

    AND...made famous by The Wiggles - Fruit Salad, yummy yummy. Fruit salad, for my tummy!

    And frankly anything by Abba. Yeah, nothing to do with food, I know, but oh so good to belt out Dancing Queen while stirring a big pot of something. Even better while doing dishes!

    1. YOU will always make me smile. I knew you'd have a slew of other inspirational songs. Keep singing Lizzy.....
