Is It a Real Food Song or a Fake?

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

BROWN SUGAR is downloadable if you own ROCK BAND. Ask me how I know that!? Sad that someone could only recognize "Strawberry Fields Forever" from a recent movie trailer. Why did you snub any mention of Weird Al's "Food Album?"

9/10! Iit was #3 that got me :( I've never heard Know Your Chicken, but I can just see it as a bad 90s rap. For some reason it also brings to mind fluorescent bike shorts..
