Listomania: 30 Songs That Make Us Hungry But Probably Shouldn't

Keep-Calm-and-Eat-Bon-Bons.jpg
Ricky Martin will be performing at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie tomorrow night. And, yes, that kind of has our mouths watering.

No, not because we have a thing for the recently outed Latin singer, but because, gluttons that we are, our stomachs have always growled when we hear his song "Shake Your Bon-Bon."

Sure, we know it's not actually about the chocolate-covered ice cream treats. But a small part of us still sort of pretends it is.

Naturally (because we hadn't eaten yet), this got us thinking about all the songs that make us hungry, but probably shouldn't. See our list in full after the jump.

Beck - "Loser"



If getting crazy with the Cheez Whiz makes one a loser, then consider us world-class deadbeats.

Dean Martin - "That's Amore"



Say what you want about our eyes. You had us at "pizza pie." 

Alan Jackson - "Chattahoochee"



We've gotta confess here: If saddled with the choice between sex and a grape sno-cone, we can't always swear we wouldn't go with the latter.

Blur - "Coffee and TV"



The best part of our two favorite pastimes (coffee drinking and TV watching) is that we can be "brain dead virtually" and still find them just as enjoyable.

Brian Wilson - "Vega-Tables"



In the song, Wilson asks us to name our favorite vegetable. Our answer? Any that have been dipped in cheese.

Big Boi - "Tangerine"



It really does nothing for us when most rappers name-drop Champagne brands like Cristal. But, hot sauce connoisseurs that we are, Big Boi shaking it "like some Texas Pete droppin' on your collard greens" makes us extra giddy.

Kelis - "Milkshake"



Her milkshake may have brought us to the yard, but it was the McDonald's chocolate triple thick that made us stay.

Jimmy Buffet - "Cheeseburger in Paradise"



Not so much a pop song as it is an ode to one of the greatest American inventions, and one of the most gormandizing songs of all time.

Wesley Willis - "Rock 'n' Roll McDonalds"



Who doesn't love a good song that doles out bits of useful advice? Go to McDonald's to rock, but when the Quarter Pounders put pounds on you remember that Wheaties are the breakfast of champions.

John Cougar - "Jack and Diane"



Nothing makes us more wistful than thinking of those fond memories of growing up, "sucking on chili dogs" with our best girl.

Maybe Simon figures that with not one, but two females who have country homes in rehab that he can tempt us, the hungry public, with the prospect of at least one career-destroying meltdown per season. ... Is seat-of-your-pants fright and worry for the two fragile females enough to make us tune in and forget that the whole setup of the show pretty much doesn't work? Sadly, that ... Ask real singers and bands what happens when the suits decide what's best for music.
