I was very disappointed to go all the way to Brooklyn a few weeks ago for 3 reasons, one of which was to go to Earwax Records...only to find an empty store and a sign suggesting I visit their new location starting the next day...I guess I'll have to make another trek.

hot tamales and red hot...same tune as I crave pig meat. yum.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 3:36pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Mike @ 3:25: the shop posted on the facebag that they had a great-condition copy of the SEA SHANTIES lp by High Tide, which caused much drooling.

Sly and Robbie was playing live outside my office for free. Unfortunately, I had meetings through most of their set, fortunately, I could still hear the bass and some of the vocals in the conference room.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 3:37pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Then while I was there, found a used copy of a 3xLP compilation of Plastic People of the Universe (cheap), which also caused much drooling.

  Thu. 7/11/13 4:17pm djelrock:

I correlate E. Neubauten with Scratching Foetus of the Wheel. Can anyone explain to me why I'd do this? Is it an anal freudian slip?

Teaches of Peaches? Not the song, but the singer, is about food. Be ready at the seven second delay.

Green Onions, man! (last one)

If you see the interviews, France Gall is either a brilliant actress or she's completely naive about that song.

Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 5:41pm Cecile:

I am so eating hot dogs for dinner tonight. Yum.
  Thu. 7/11/13 5:41pm Danielle:

what about avocados? they are totally being neglected and ignored in music
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:42pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Get your hotdog right here!
  Thu. 7/11/13 5:42pm tahomajohn:

that is one frickin creepy song
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 5:43pm Cecile:

danielle, Slim Gaillard makes reference to "avocado seed soup" in his "Cement Mixer, A-Putti, Putti"
  Thu. 7/11/13 5:43pm Danielle:

How many bags of chips have you eaten Alex?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:44pm Hacke:

Yup, Fred Bongusto. Very creepy indeed.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:44pm Wretch:

I first heard it around 90/91 in a UT-Austin student film. A head was, indeed, chopped off causing someone to stop eating hotdogs.

Might have been the same semester as Robert Rodriguez's Bed Head.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:44pm Hacke:

On the forth.

Oh yeah!!! Euro-trash sweetness

Didn't the Troggs have an avocado solo on Wild Thing? No wait, that was an ocarina.

The Chocolate Watchband! Potato Chip!
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:47pm Matt F:

Hey Fabio. I did a food show last thanksgiving. Amazingly the only song (so far) that we both played is "Jambalaya".
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Any Chocolate Watchband suggestion is a solid-gold righteous suggestion.
  Thu. 7/11/13 5:47pm Danielle:

What an Ocarina?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:48pm Hacke:

A little flute like thing.
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 5:48pm Cecile:

a sweet-potato shaped kind of wind instrument you can hold in your hand.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

All right, food songs!

@Fiveash: I think "The Spinach Song" might be up your alley!
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 5:49pm Carmichael:

Was this recorded before Waits began smoking 12 cartons a day?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:50pm dale:

damn, just tuned in to this show. is fabio taking it like a sport?
Avatar    Thu. 7/11/13 5:50pm Cecile:

and before he was turned on to Captain Beefheart.
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Savoy Truffle!! That's a fave of mine from the White Album!
"Birth Lunch Death" is a fantastic title, btw.

Now: I Want The Waiter (With The Water)
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:52pm dale:

not one polka? beer barrel, or otherwise? polka is not represented on this station - which is actually odd to me.
  Thu. 7/11/13 5:52pm SABrenal:

I was on a quest to find a good non-meat hot dog and I just discovered that you have to put gobs of dijon on and that will make even a "Smart Dog" good.

Who Stole the Kischka?
Avatar Thu. 7/11/13 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@dale: Fatty Jubbo's Cake & Polka Parade. Though, IIRC it's not a polka-based show.

Ooooh! PGB's fill-ins: "Klarinettpolka" to start and another polka he always ends on.

OH! Is this Screamin' Jay Hawkins "Constipation Blues"! LOVE this!
  Thu. 7/11/13 5:58pm Night Al:

1. Beans and Cornbread--Louis Jordan
Cornbread challenges beans to a fight. Just when things get heated, beans astutely averts crisis by reminding cornbread that they go hand in hand.

2. Pass the Peas--J.B.'s
James Brown's band makes peas funky, and not in a week-old casserole sort of way.

3. Bread and Butter--The Newbeats
Things seemed perfect for the Newbeats' strikingly falsetto Larry Henley since his baby always fed him his favorite titular dish--until he caught her eating chicken and dumplings with another man.

4. Junk Food Junkie--X-Ray Spex
Fast food and fast living will make Johnny and Jenny die young.

5. Cherry Pie--Marvin & Johnny
Like a sweet slice of pie, this doo-wop number is so addictive it was covered by Skip & Flip AND George Carlin.

6. Peanut Butter--Marathons
This creamy novelty R&B hit really sticks.

7. I Like Food--Descendents
A passionate and explosive fifteen second love poem to grub

8. Know Your Chicken--Cibo Matto
The Japanese duo's name means "crazy food" in Italian so you can consider them an authority when they advocate knowing your chicken.

9. I Don't Wanna Be No Personal Pizza--Personal & the Pizzas
These New Jersey punkers channel The Ramones and Kierkegaard to philosophically employ pizza as a metaphor for life.

10. The Hamburger Song--Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces
This fun dance number proves the origins of rap are with the burger. Now health-conscious diets have put the burger back in a wrap. It's the circle of life.

11. Ham 'N' Eggs--A Tribe Called Quest
Get a tip on lowering your cholesterol from the hip hop luminary's first album.

12. Peanut Butter Jelly Time--The Buckwheat Boyz
Once isolated to listeners of South Florida's Power96 FM, the cloying 105 second track got 15 minutes of fame when it became an internet meme with 21 million YouTube hits.

13. Banana Splits (The Tra La La Song)--The Dickies
The LA punks' do The Banana Splits Adventure Hour theme on a revved up sugar high.

14. Rib Tips--Andre Williams
This meaty instrumental sounds like how you might feel if given some rib tips. May we have a toothpick please.

15. Red Beans--Professor Longhair
The inventor of New Orleans piano offers his signature dish that'll have the women jumping for joy.

16. Vegetables--Beach Boys
Take a peak into the crisper of Brian Wilson's mind with his ode to edible plants that features celery chewing as percussion.

17. Mashed Potatoes--Steve Alaimo
The early '60s dance craze of pivoting heels was also provided a soundtrack by Dee Dee Sharp, Nat Kendrick and the Swans (AKA James Brown's band) and Bill Haley y sus Cometas.

18. Milk Shake & Potato Chips--Bob Marley & the Wailers
Marley complains that every time he takes his lady out she wants a milk shake and potato chips. Sounds like our kind of girl.

19. Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie--Jay and the Techniques
There's a nostalgia in certain fruits, baked goods and seeing the girl you've been trying to tag since you played hide-and-seek as kids.

20. Bar-B-Q--Wendy Rene
Call Dr. Phil. This might be the cure for depression.

21. Coconut--Harry Nilsson
Woo-ooo. Drink this song down, then you'll feel better.

22. Southern Fried Chicken--Bill Thomas and The Fendells
Like this 1966 platter, when chicken is battered and fried perfectly, it's got delicious grooves.

23. Peaches--Presidents of the United States of America
Not since Henry David Thoreau's Walden has there been such a celebrated expression of transcendental living.

24. Memphis Soul Stew--King Curtis
In 1967, the monarch of rock and roll sax gave us a step-by-step recipe for delicious R&B: half a teacup of bass, a pound of fatback drums, four tablespoons of boiling Memphis guitars, a pinch of organ and half a pint of horn. Active Time: 3 minutes. It's going to taste alright.

25. They're Red Hot--Robert Johnson
The bad news is hot tamales are so red hot they'll put your kidneys to sleep. Good news, they're a dime for four.


Plus five honorable mentions (that have nothing to do with food):
Cornbread--Lee Morgan; Pumpkin Soup--Kate Nash; Hot Burrito--The Flying Burrito Brothers; Cheeseburger--Gang of Four; Pulling Mussels (From The Shell)--Squeeze
