Tommy D – Treasure Hunting “A Food Special” (06.14.17)


this set is compiled with songs talking about food , using it as their theme, a metaphor or allegory.
I searched songs talking about our alimentation which, if it’s directly used as a song talking about food, talks about the sweetness of it, or the greasiness of it. I didn’t find a lot of songs talking about tofu or fresh vegetables.
Other songs talking about food, use it in a political way or in a narrative way, such as Monte Cazazza talking about a serial killer who used to own a sugar factory. I let, with one exception, the songs talking about drinks out of this playlist. Hope you’re hungry for some music.
