On Dec. 18, 1965, Herb Alpert's "Taste of Honey" was number one on the charts. It's from the album Whipped Cream and Other Delights and is so quintessentially 60s. I also love that the song — along with nearly every other song on that album — is named after food. Fortunately for all of us food inspired music doesn't stop with Herb Alpert, in fact, there have been a ton — a highly accurate term if I may say so myself — of them since.
I've rounded up a few of my faves, as well as a bunch of fakes. Now you need to tell me, is it a real food song, or something I cooked up? Ready to play? Source
