Hot Butter – Popcorn

This track has no lyrics, so it’s up to you to imagine a delicious bowl of freshly popped corn. The beat and melody even call to mind kernels of corn giving up the ghost and becoming fluffy popped versions of themselves. It’s a classic!

Presidents of the United States of America – Peaches

Millions of peaches, peaches for free? Yowza, guys! That’s a lot of free peaches. Produce is expensive these days.

Weird Al Yankovic – Eat It

This spoof of Michael Jackson’s Beat It is the ultimate tribute to all things edible. Although you shouldn’t eat too much or you might end up like Weird Al’s other popular Michael Jackson number.

The Beatles – Savoy Truffle

Word on the street (the Internet) is that George Harrison penned this song as an homage to his friend Eric Clapton, who had a notorious sweet tooth. Good ol' Slowhand had a fast hand when it came to dessert.

Cibbo Matto – Know Your Chicken

This song reads like a 1990s advertisement for organic and free-range poultry. Do you know your chicken and where it was raised, and what kind of diet it had while being raised? There will be a quiz after.

Buckwheat Boyz – Peanut Butter Jelly Time

If you wanted to pick one song, and one dancing banana, that defined the early Internet, you’d have to pick this song and this dancing banana.

Booker T. and the M.G.'s – Green Onions

It’s easy to overlook the humble green onion. After all, they usually act as a garnish or something to give texture. And yet, where would specialty cream cheese flavors be without them?

Harry Nilsson – Coconut

If ever, in the history of the world, someone puts some lime in a coconut without singing this song, it’ll be a gigantic surprise.
