Top 200 Songs About Food

Songs About Food

Our Top 200 songs about food was written to serve as a helpful guide for people searching for songs about food on all food items. Sometimes a song is specifically about a food, other times a food items is just used in the title although the song many not have anything to do with food and is just used symbolically. That’s an important point to make. We saw that constantly with terms like sugar and cherry.  Most of this songs on this list about food list presents food songs in the rock genre since we are a classic rock history site. Nonetheless, we did include some classics outside of the rock genre for those looking for some oldies or other styles. At times we would list a group of songs together under one particular food product like pie or sugar. Other times it was just random songs that popped up in our heads. We wanted to keep it both entertaining and helpful. The order is just simply random.

We tried to dig deeper than most other lists and dig up some songs that you may never heard of, but when listing 200 there will always be some of the classics that we just could not avoid.  This one took a long time to put together. Bon Appetit!
