Top Ten Thursday: Food & Drink Edition – Part I

With the approach of Thanksgiving, we decided it appropriate to offer up a list of our favorite songs containing food and drink references.  The pool of songs was way more impressive than we imagined, necessitating us splitting the list into two parts; the first highlighting food and the second focusing on drinks (check it out here).  What we found, at least while putting together this first list, is that almost every song referencing food is either inherently silly or sexual
