VeganMoFo 17: My Favorite Foodie Songs!

Usually, when I'm in the kitchen, I've got the radio tuned to NPR... but sometimes I just don't feel like cooking to "Marketplace," ya know? So, I've compiled some of my person favorite songs about food. Sorry for the long download, but I promise these are great songs!

Hank Williams: Hey Good Lookin'
Truly a classic... one of the all time best kitchen songs. Whatcha got cookin'?

Johnny Cash: While I've Got it on My Mind
I LOVE this sweet and romantic song. I like to listen to it when I make jam.

Lyle Lovett: Church
Everyone was gettin' so hungry!

Kate Bush : Eat the Music
Click on the link to watch this video...
This song is possibly my favorite Kate Bush song.

Louis Jordan: Beans and Cornbread
I'll be ready tomorrow night!
I sing this song ALL THE TIME. It is one of my favorite
songs ever, and this video is extra fun.

Louis Jordan: Two Little Squirrels
This is Mr. VE&Ts & my official song. It is so sweet and
funny and romantic. Not really great dancing, but MAN,
what a great song!!

Louis Prima: Angelina
I eat the antipasto twice, just because she is so nice!
I dare you not to smile when you listen to this one.

Big Rock Candy Mountain
It sounds like such a lovely place: The lemonade
springs where the blue bird sings

Cookie Monster: C is for Cookie
No foodie song list would be complete without
Mr. C. Monster.

Texas Tornados: Guacamole
No video available, buy you can listen to it here:
A sexy romp through the grocery market: We'd be makin'
guacamole all night long!

Under the Mango Tree
This one is a fairly recent favorite... discovered while
watching "Dr. No" (highly recommended)
- so insanely weird and addictive!

Any other great songs I missed?
