The Top 10 Songs About Food
Like sex, food is one of most primal things known to mankind. So it’s really no surprise how often food comes up in song. If you need a legitimate food playlist to get your crowd salivating for Thanksgiving, then we've got you covered.

10. "Milkshake" - Kelis
Just the idea of a group of super hot ladies bringing their favorite frothy drinks made of cold milk and ice cream to a giant yard makes my head spin. Although the true meaning behind the song’s title could be a number of different things, I would really like to think that Kelis is a classy chick and she honestly has the best milkshake recipe on the entire block. I’m assuming she probably got it from her mama. Zing!
9. “Cherry Pie” - Warrant
Who doesn’t love a big piece of pie? I don’t think there is anyone on the planet who doesn’t enjoy a nice helping now and then. This may be the reason why the 1990 Warrant single “Cherry Pie” reached the top ten and went on to be one of the biggest hits of the year. Although, come to think of it, it may also have to do with the fact that sexy video vixen Bobbie Brown got a big cherry pie dropped in her wet lap in the classic video. Either way, gotta love that pastry crust and fruit filling.
8. "Gin And Juice" - Snoop Doggy Dogg
I find it quite pleasing that Snoop decided to throw down a song promoting the consumption one of the more healthy alcoholic beverages on the market. If you’re going to be smoking mad blunts and hollering at ladies all night you might as well be taking in a serious dose of vitamin C to keep you immune system right.
This is also one of the greatest party songs ever written. It's physically impossible not to down a whole bottle of Tanqueray and orange juice while this 1993 Dre-produced classic is bumpin’ at a West Coast house party. Who knew a song about drinking distilled white grain spirits and raw cane sugar could be so awesome?
7. "Mother Popcorn" - James Brown
This song is more about the dance than the food, but there is no doubt that this is one of the funkiest songs ever written about heated food kernels. This song is so funky that the first time I heard it I felt like a giant corn puff bursting open from the dry heat of the dance floor. Not many songs out there can make you feel like an actual food. Some how, JB pulled it off.
6. “Juicy Fruit” – Mtume
Most of us know that this as the original sample used in Biggie’s 1994 smash “Juicy,” but this funky 1983 banger is also one of the few perfect tracks that can compare a special someone to numerous candies and ripe fruits. I wish I was someone’s chocolate star.
You know very well
What you are
You’re my sugar thing
My chocolate star
I’ve had a few
But not that many
But you’re the only love
That gives me good and plenty
