Songs More About Food Than Buildings

So, let's say you cook a lot.

Let's also say that sometimes while you're cooking you say to yourself, "I wish I had some songs about food to listen to while I cook."

Then let's further say you are one of the two to three people in the world that actually read this blog.

Come on. Let's say those things all together. En masse, as it were. No? I didn't think so.

So, anyway...

A couple few years ago, I made a "mix tape" of songs about food, or at least songs about food or things that can be made into food. Since I have nothing better to do with my life (I AM writing a blog after all, so you know I've got some spare time), I have uploaded this "combo-lation" into the ether and invite anyone who is interested to have a listen.

I happen to *BE* one of the two or three people that read this blog. I have never wished for that song list. However, now that I've seen it, I'm wondering WHY I have never wished for that song list!

Genius, boy. Pure genius. (Get a job)
