MoFo Day 12: Five awesome food related songs

Okay, I am ripping off Vegan Eats & Treats here directly because  1)  I was at her house yesterday!  and 2) she's had a great idea!  Here are some songs about food that I love:

The Mountain Goats - Jam Eater Blues
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdcrpimoBig

Life's too short to refrain from eating jam out of the jar. It's true.




The Mountain Goats - Golden Boy Peanuts
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h27E9cXhozw
There are no pan-Asian supermarkets down in hell, so you can't buy Golden Boy peanuts there. What's not to love about a song that encourages you to be on your good behavior so that you can eat your favorite treat for all eternity?


Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - The Candyman Can
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9B_6PH4dhU
The candy man can, because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good. I think a lot of us equate cooking with love on at least some level. I certainly do. This is a big childhood nostalgia song for me too. I swear I can picture most of the video footage in this song with my eyes closed.


The Cure - Friday I'm in Love
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxkYVIcVIaU
Okay, not an entire song about food, but you've got to like a song that includes a passage about liking to watch your loved one eat a midnight snack.


Iron and Wine - Bird Stealing Bread
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K0yU1VzwII
And a sweet sad song to end this list with.


Boy, this is hard! I don't seem to KNOW that many songs about food. Baby requires snuggling (one of the better tasks of parenthood) so I'll have to leave it here and keep thinking about food songs.
