As I was eating my breakfast, I got to thinking about songs with food in the title. I happened to be munching on a piece of toast, and it reminded me of that rather bizarre little ditty by Paul Young (when he was in Streetband) called “toast” where he imparts his love of grilled bread in song. I thought it might be fun to share with you some other songs with food in the title. Tasty heh?
1. American Pie

Of course, this has to be the very top of any list of songs with food in the title. Younger readers will probably be more aware of the Madonna version but for me, the original and classic Don McLean is superior. The meaning of the song’s lyrics is one of the most hotly debated subjects in popular music and there’s no definitive answer. I see it as one man’s portrayal of how the American cultural landscape changed over three decades; how the flavor of American pie changed.
