Earlier this week I made a presentation to people studying food issues so I played them food songs that have affected me. Started with the blues and all those sex lyrics – used Molly Jones’s “Anybody here want to try my cabbage”.
I continued with Savoy Truffle. Who among us is not amazed that the lyrics are just the contents of a box of sweets?
Moved onto the layered A Case of You by Joni Mitchell “And I Would Still Be On My Feet”
They didn’t seem to really care about any of these choices but I was right about only one thing, ending with the 70s instrumental Popcorn.
