Food Songs: music playlists for your aural and oral pleasure
What are food songs?
Food songs are songs that are in some way related to food/drinks or eating. Most either have food in the title or a reference to food/drinks in the lyrics. (Many times, the reference to food is a metaphor for something else.) However, other food songs might not have any mention of food whatsoever and the music simply adds to the ambiance of the restaurant or the meal itself.
Here’s a fairly comprehensive list of food songs and mixes organized by genre/theme. Listen to these playlists as-is, or use them to inspire your own playlists. Of course, there are no rules on listening to music…you are more than free to listen to music however you want and whenever you want. These are simply suggested music & food pairings that undeniably go well together.
