I had a lot of fun making the playlist of econosongs, so recently dove into songs about food.  It turns out that songs about food are actually about… well, you can guess.  Or listen, if you dare:

If you check it out you might notice a few patterns.

Some parts of the playlist are laugh-out-loud funny, like when Spotify’s random sequence gives you a head-full of Milkshake and Cheeseburgers in Paradise.

Hearing Fried Chicken from Nas & Busta Rhymes alongside Colt Ford’s country Tailgate is America at its most sublime, but the playlist also gets right into the culture wars like Ben Folds versus the Fat Boys.

I’ve censored out a few that are just too mean for my blood, such as the Rolling Stones’ nasty old Brown Sugar, but left in songs such as Chocolate Jesus or Cornbread and Butterbeans that I really like.

Mostly, this playlist is just kids like Aaron Carter wanting candy. Add your favorites, and enjoy!
