The funny thing is that I can think of several favorite songs with a food in the title but none that are really about food in the literal sense. These songs may be talking about "food" of a whole different kind but here are a handful... ;)

Custard Pie - Led Zeppelin
Hot Dog - Led Zeppelin
Tangerine - Led Zeppelin
Hot Dog - Elvis Presley
Cheese Cake - Aerosmith
Peach - Prince

Jeff- Fizz Water is great - never heard it before. Made me think of Pineapple Rag, which also fits.

Fizz Water is a Eubie Blake song. There's a nice piano version of it on YouTube also, by "bachscholar".

I like the Pineapple Rag you sent.

And you reminded me of another food song... "I Eat Out", by Loudon Wainwright III. He's not usually my style but this one is short, funny, and somehow just what it should be: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsYrCJTyVsI

No contest! Eggplant by Michael Franks. The sound isn't good on this, but at least it's a live performance.

I have Frank Sinatra singing that one on my "Dinner Music" playlist. It was the first song that came to mind when coffee was mentioned.

Have always loved Jambalaya, either Hank Williams or BJG Roots. A fun song to sing too!

Going further in the coffee vein, there's one of Bob Marley's first recordings, "One Cup of Coffee".

And then I just stumbled across this article which links to ten different songs about coffee (including at least one already mentioned in this thread). I had been planning to post links to Dylan's "One More Cup of Coffee" and "Black Coffee" as done by k.d. lang, but this site has both of those plus more.
