    Two Triple Cheese, Side Order Of Fries...by Commander Cody...circa early 1970's...
     
    This was an early one featuring Bill Kirchen, and was also a very early music video filmed at the Grand Lake Drive In (next to the opulant Grand Lake Theater, next to Lake Merrit in downtown Oakland, CA)...I think the video was released by Blind Pig Records...(???)
     
    Also released on an lp (you know, those flat pieces of black plastic with grooves that went around and around)

        One of my very favorite recent songs addresses food from 1:40 to 2:50...

              This is more beverage related but it is hilarious.  At the end you will see a lot of familiar faces.

                  "The Night The Chinese Restaurant Burned Down" by Sylvia Tyson comes to mind but it's not really about the food.

                          "Weird Al" Yankovic has a whole compilation CD of his food song parodies:
                           
                          1. Fat (parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad")

                          2. Lasagna (parody of Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba")

                          3. Addicted to Spuds (parody of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love)

                          4. I Love Rocky Road (parody of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock 'N' Roll")

                          5. Spam (parody of REM's "Stand")

                          6. Eat It (parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat It")

                          7. The White Stuff (Parody of New Kids on the Block's "The Right Stuff")

                          8. My Bologna (Parody of the Knack's "My Sharona")

                          9. Taco Grande (Parody of Gerardo's "Rico Suave")

                          10. The Rye or the Kaiser (Parody of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger")
                           
                          All classic Weird Al.
                           
                          And who can forget Butterbeans and Susie's classic "I Wanna Hot Dog For My Roll."  Never got tired of that one on Dr. Demento.

                            Weird Al is like eating at McDonalds,
                            its not good but somebody had to come up with it.

                                      Here ya go sk bob; Luv this song!

                                      Ain't nothin' in the world that I like better
                                      Than bacon & lettuce & homegrown tomatoes
                                      Up in the mornin' out in the garden

                                      Get you a ripe one don't get a hard one
                                      Plant `em in the spring eat `em in the summer
                                      All winter with out `em's a culinary bummer
                                      I forget all about the sweatin' & diggin'
                                      Everytime I go out & pick me a big one

                                      Homegrown tomatoes homegrown tomatoes
                                      What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
                                      Only two things that money can't buy
                                      That's true love & homegrown tomatoes

                                      You can go out to eat & that's for sure
                                      But it's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
                                      Put `em in a salad, put `em in a stew
                                      You can make your very own tomato juice
                                      Eat `em with eggs, eat `em with gravy
                                      Eat `em with beans, pinto or navy
                                      Put `em on the site put `em in the middle
                                      Put a homegrown tomato on a hotcake griddle

                                      If I's to change this life I lead
                                      I'd be Johnny Tomato Seed
                                      `Cause I know what this country needs
                                      Homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see
                                      When I die don't bury me
                                      In a box in a cemetary
                                      Out in the garden would be much better
                                      I could be pushin' up homegrown tomatoes

                                                          My favorite is still Slim Gaillard's "Yep-Roc Heresay", which, by all accounts, is about food:
                                                          http://www.youtube.com/wa...4A&feature=related
                                                          Don't know what it is, but it probably goes well with an "Atomic Cocktail" (b-side.)
