What I’m Listening To March 2024

Hello all, and welcome to yet another edition of What I'm Listening To! I love food!! I love eating it, I love cooking it. So, for this month, I thought why not make this month's theme about what I love! So, without further ado, here's some of my Top 5 songs with food in the title! Bon Appetit!

"American Pie" - Don McLean (The Best of Don McLean)

Don McLean, for me, did one of the most iconic songs of the classic rock era. The song itself is a sorrowful one about how he felt when a plane crash in 1959 killed rock stars Buddy Holly, "The Big Bopper", and Ritchie Valens. He considered that "the day the music died". That being said, it's a very catchy song. The acoustic guitar paired with McLean's vocals really make the song.

"Brown Sugar" - The Rolling Stones (Honk)

The Rolling Stones have countless hits, and are among rock's best. Their song "Brown Sugar" is one of these. The electric guitar and drums starting this song really gets you in a great place where you just want to rock out. Turn up the volume and let the Stones be your guide on this musical journey!


"Red Red Wine" - UB40 (New Wave Hits of the 80's Vol. 4 )

I despised wine when I was introduced to it, mostly in college. My stance was softened years later as a friend's girlfriend at the time introduced to me that it didn't have to taste like junk (Shout out Franzia!). Now I like most kinds, if not too dry. UB40's only hit here in the States, "Red Red Wine" is a great example of new age reggae. Maybe enjoy a nice Red Blend while you sit back and enjoy this easy going music. And folks, please drink responsibly. 

New Wave Hits of the '80s

"Peaches and Cream" - 112 (Part III)

This is a straight head bobber. 112 didn't have too much success, but they did string off a couple early hits, this being their most well known. Their voices are smooth like silk, and the beat is sick. Just like R& B is supposed to be.

"I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" - The Four Tops (Essential Collection: Four Tops)

As we all know, I absolutely love Motown! I don't think you can grow up in Michigan and not get at least introduced to it. Towards the top of the list, the Four Tops were one of Motown's best. The beat rolls on and the music is quintessential Detroit, and I can't recommend this band enough.
