Default Foodee Songs

What are some of your favorite songs about food?


Here's Texas singer/songwriter Guy Clark with Homegrown Tomatoes.

Another Guy Clark song, here he is with Texas Cookin'.


Moving up to Canada, Stompin' Tom Connors has The Ketchup Song (AKA "Ketchup Loves Potatoes").

The good Dr. Connors just may have some kind of potato fixation. Here he is again with Bud The Spud.



What food-related songs do you like?

(This could be fun! )

Just off the top of my head, there's also "Shoo-Fly Pie", "Catfish And Collard Greens" (Junior Brown), "Tiger Love And Turnip Greens" (Duane Eddy, instrumental), and "Green Onions" (Booker T and the MGs, instrumental).

And, of course, who could forget Cheeseburger In Paradise, by Jimmy Buffett?



I'm sure you'll come up with something...

OK...

How about Food Glorious Food from Oliver!

And...Sugar Sugar (the Archies) or Yummy Yummy Yummy (the Ohio Express) or Does your chewing gum lose its flavor? (Lonnie Donegan)

Do those 3 count as food?

oooh Punky's Dilemma! (Simon and Garfunkle) "wish I was a Kellogg's cornflake..."

lol...that was the first song I learned as a little girl and I never forgot the lyrics...

On top of spaghetti
All covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed
It rolled off the table
and onto the floor
and then my poor meatball
rolled out of the door

We sing a slightly mixed up version..

On top of Spaghetti
All covered with snow
I lost my poor sweeeeeeetie
When somebody sneezed.

She rolled off the table
and onto the floor
and then my poor sweeeeeetie
rolled right out the door

She rolled in the garden
and under a bush
and then my poor sweeeeetie
was nothing but mush.

So when you have spaghetti
all covered with snow
remember my sweeeetie
and cover your sneeze.

Anyone ever sing the kids camp song, "Fried Ham"?

Fried ham, fried ham, cheese and baloney,
after the macaroni we'll eat onions,
pickles and ketchup and then we'll eat some more fried ham,
fried ham, fried ham!

Second verse same as the first, baby voice (opera, okie, drunk, etc.) couldn't be worse!

And then it's repeated over and over in various accents and voices.

Not really a 'Foodee Song', but Guy Clark often seems to talk about food in his songs.

In Black Diamond Strings, he states "Black Diamond strings are like white flour and grits: You play Black Diamond strings 'cause it's all you can get."

My girlfriend had to explain this to me. Apparently, if you're low on grits, you can stretch it out a bit with white flour.

So, presumably, Black Diamond is not the preferred brand of guitar string.



But the main reason I posted this comes from another reference in the song's chorus: "Drinkin' 1 W Harper..."

What's he singing about there? Was that a brand of whiskey or soda pop that would have been sold in Texas?


(Uh...it seems I've once again linked to a video that has Emmylou Harris in it. Funny how often that happens, innit?)

A friend introduced me to this song. More of a feeder song than a foodee one, but it's still about food.

Everybody Eats When They Come To My House
From Cab Calloway and His Orchestra

Have a banana, Hannah,
Try the salami, Tommy,
Give with the gravy, Davy,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Try a tomato, Plato,
Here's cacciatore, Dorie,
Taste the baloney, Tony,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

I fix your favorite dishes,
Hopin' this good food fills ya!
Work my hands to the bone in the kitchen alone,
You better eat if it kills ya!

Pass me a pancake, Mandrake,
Have an hors-d'oeuvre-y, Irvy,
Look in the fendel (?), Mendel,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Hannah! Davy! Tommy! Dora! Mandrake!
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Pastafazoola, Talullah!
Oh, do have a bagel, Fagel,
Now, don't be so bashful, Nashville,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Hey, this is a party, Marty,
Here, you get the cherry, Jerry,
Now, look, don't be so picky, Micky,
'Cause everybody eats when they come to my house!

All of my friends are welcome,
Don't make me coax you, moax you,
Eat the tables, the chairs, the napkins, who cares?
You gotta eat if it chokes you!

Oh, do have a knish, Nishia,
Pass me the latke, Macky,
Chile con carne for Barney,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Face! Buster! Chair! Chops! Fump!
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Lightbulb 500 Songs About Food (plus three)

Now here's a topic I can really get my teeth into (so to speak). I dare you to find a great food song that isn't already included in this Top 500 list:

http://www.mixedup.com/foodsongs.htm

Offhand, I can think of three more favorites that somehow got left out - "Long Tall Glasses" by Leo Sayer, "Burger God" by Big Daddy Graham (note to Randi: he also recorded the Garden State anthem "Viva New Jersey," though I think Uncle Floyd did it first), and "Fifty Cents," a true classic by Billy Mortimer and Dan Lewis, which dates all the way back to 1881:

Those who share my aural fixation might also enjoy this food song thread:

which includes yet another version of "On Top of Spaghetti."

Baba!! You are finally here on the Foodee Board. Please keep posting! You'd have so much to offer.

Everybody Eats When They Come To My House
From Cab Calloway and His Orchestra

Have a banana, Hannah,
Try the salami, Tommy,
Give with the gravy, Davy,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Try a tomato, Plato,
Here's cacciatore, Dorie,
Taste the baloney, Tony,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

I fix your favorite dishes,
Hopin' this good food fills ya!
Work my hands to the bone in the kitchen alone,
You better eat if it kills ya!

Pass me a pancake, Mandrake,
Have an hors-d'oeuvre-y, Irvy,
Look in the fendel (?), Mendel,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Hannah! Davy! Tommy! Dora! Mandrake!
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Pastafazoola, Talullah!
Oh, do have a bagel, Fagel,
Now, don't be so bashful, Nashville,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Hey, this is a party, Marty,
Here, you get the cherry, Jerry,
Now, look, don't be so picky, Micky,
'Cause everybody eats when they come to my house!

All of my friends are welcome,
Don't make me coax you, moax you,
Eat the tables, the chairs, the napkins, who cares?
You gotta eat if it chokes you!

Oh, do have a knish, Nishia,
Pass me the latke, Macky,
Chile con carne for Barney,
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Face! Buster! Chair! Chops! Fump!
Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Everybody eats when they come to my house!
Longtime listeners of Faith Middleton's Food Shmooze know this as her theme song. Her radio show is on Connecticut NPR stations from 3-4pm on Wednesdays. Her show is actually Monday-Friday but every Wednesday is all about food. She gets famous chefs to talk about food topics, and she gets food purveyors as well. It is a delight.
