Hello fair readers!
While listening to NPR this morning, a show came on that I find rather amusing. It’s called Sound Opinions. This is basically a show where two music geeks talk about…well…music.
And today they had Anthony Bourdain on the show
to talk about the connections between food and music. It was a great show, which I highly recommend you check out, but they listed off some of their favorite songs about food. I found this inspiring.
They listed off some of the following:
While listening to this I became inspired and thought I would share with you….aren’t you lucky….some of my own very favorite songs about food.
My first thought immediatly went to Yo La Tengo…because they are gods…but also because when I saw them live
which was awesome beyond belief, they told the hot chicken story, which basically revolves are a little place in Nashville called Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, where they apparently have the hottest chicken Yo La Tengo hates to love. They claimed that you have to eat the chicken because it’s so delicious but it’s so damn hot, that you get sick for days. So yes, my first song about food that I love is:

And finally I thought about Feist
mainly because one of my, hands down, favorite songs from 2007 is the gorgeous
So those are mine. There are so many and these are just a few of my favorites. But I’m interested to see what others think.
Do you have a favorite song about food?
Have a lovely weekend fair readers.
