It’s National Guitar Week. And believe it or not, guitars and food go together like spaghetti and meatballs. Think about it. Loads of songs, albums, bands, and even record companies have food in their titles.
Honey shows up in lots of song titles, like the Beatles Honey Pie, Van Morrison’s Tupelo Honey, the Beach Boys’ Wild Honey, and Carl Perkins’ Honey Don’t, just as it is appearing as a sugar substitute in more and more recipes.
Even though honey has far more health benefits than refined sugar we shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bath water. Rock 'N Roll without Chubby Checker’s Peppermint Twist, Neil Young’s Sugar Mountain, or Marcy Playground’s Sex and Candy would be like Valentine's Day without sweets or birthdays without cake!
Maybe the sweetest Rock 'N Roll song of all is American Pie by Don McLean. It outlines the history of rock to the date of its 1972 release.
Fats Domino had an early rock hit with Blueberry Hill. It has stood the test of time just like blueberries, which deliver health-boosting antioxidants to those who indulge.
What’s your favorite guitar-based food song? Have a little fun and find a dish to celebrate it this month!
