Food Music?

To create the perfect mood for a dinner party, music is essential. Lately I have been thinking of "food" as a theme for music.

I browsed my music library and was able to come up with a few tunes that can be categorised into two sections:

1. Bands/Singers that are named after food-

Vanilla Ice, The Temptations, Cake, Pearl Jam, Salt & Pepa, Buffalo Tom, Fiona Apple

2. Songs that are named after food-

Cinnamon Girl - Neil Young, also covered by Stone Roses

Gin & Juice - Snoop

Tangerine - The Flaming Lips

The Seed - Roots

Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice, great cover by Ben Kweller

Pour Some Sugar on Me - Def Leppard

Pina Colada Song - Rupert Holmes

Lollipop - Chordettes

Strawberry Fields - The Beatles

Scarborough Fair (Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme) - Simon & Garfunkel

This is obviously not a complete list so please post any ideas that you might have.

Prince has a version of 'Cinnamon Girl' - very good. Wide Mouth Mason have a song called Lagavulin, but it's not exactly a party song. More introspective than anything else.
