Click the rank for the Best Songs Ever With A Food Or Drink Word In The Title.
This has always been an interesting topic of mine, listening to songs about food or drinks or having food or drinks mentioned in the title of a song. I always wanted to make this list, but never got around to it until now. I hope others enjoy this kind of list as much as I do. It made my hungry just making this list, so I had some cherry pie and pumpkin pie right after I finished it. Have fun listening to these songs and happy voting!!! Add the missing songs

If music be the food of love, play on. To mark Glastonbury and music festival season, here are our favourite songs with comestible-inspired names
Savoy Truffle, The Beatles
George Harrison apparently wrote this light-hearted song in homage to his friend Eric Clapton’s chocolate obsession. “He’s got this real sweet tooth and he’d just had his mouth worked on,” Harrison said in 1977. “His dentist said he was through with candy. So as a tribute I wrote, ‘You’ll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle’.” Not really the best way to cheer him up, George.
Lemon Incest, Serge and Charlotte Gainsbourg
Well, we couldn’t not include it, could we? This controversial duet from a father and daughter (Charlotte was just 12 at the time), with a rather suggestive promotional video, raised many an eyebrow but reached #2 in the French charts. As they say, no publicity is bad publicity…
Milkshake by Kelis
In 2003, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing Kelis’s annoyingly catchy R&B number. But what was this mysterious milkshake that brought “all the boys to the yard”? Kelis explained: “A milkshake is the thing that makes women special. It’s what gives us our confidence and what makes us exciting.” Off to McDonald’s we go, then.
Wild Honey, The Beach Boys
Nature’s sweet stuff and a dream girl blur together in this 1967 number. In the boys’ own words: “She got it on and stung me good, yes sirree”.
Peaches, The Presidents of the United States of America
“I’m movin’ to the country, I’m gonna eat me a lot of peaches.” So sings Chris Ballew in this song – repeatedly.
My Girl Lollipop, Millie Small
There’s more versions of this than you could shake an, erm, lollipop at, but for our money, Jamaican teenager Millie Small’s ska version, which reached #2 in the British charts in 1964, is hard to beat.
Brown Sugar, Rolling Stones
The lead single from the Rolling Stones’s 1971 album, Sticky Fingers. The song is sometimes said to be about Marsha Hunt, Mick Jagger’s secret girlfriend and the mother of his first child, Karis, but the soul singer Claudia Lennear also claimed to have inspired it.
(Do the) Mashed Potatoes, James Brown
In the early 1960s, it was all about the “mashed potato” dance routine. A whole heap of songs devoted to this most mundane of foodstuffs emgerged, but you can’t beat Mr Brown and his band’s efforts – though, due to a contractual dispute, it was actually issued under the name Nat Kendrick and the Swans, and overdubbed with someone else’s vocals.
Raspberry Swirl, Tori Amos
A thumpingly sexy number from flame-haired Miss Amos, supposedly based on a relationship she once had with a woman. Liable to send people into a dancing frenzy.
