That is a lot of coffee songs Jack, on my first cup of the day now.

Great stuff...Strawberry fields would be my favorite! I love coffee as well but had no idea that there were so many songs about it.

So cool, thanks for sharing Alyson!

Very witty, Alyson! Some of those calorie counts just stole my appetite, though.

Hey Alyson, thanks for the info. But I feel a little slighted. Coffee is a food group too! And here are a few suggestions for coffee songs:
The Coffee Song by Frank Sinatra, or
40 Cups of Coffee - Tennessee Earnest Ford, or
5 Cups of Coffee - The Jayhawks, or
89 Cent (Coffee on the Dashboard) - The Walkers, or
A Cup of Coffee - Johnny Cash, or
A Cup of Hot Coffee - The Outsiders, or
A Lonesome Cup of Coffee - Mel Torme, or
Acid Coffee - Sundown Park, or
Addicted to Coffee - Regatta 69 - Punk Ska, or
All of this can Caffeine Too! - The Vermin, or
Bad Coffee - Carl Cox, or
Black Coffee in Bed - Squeeze, or
Caffeinated - Hellbender, or
Coffee - Aesop Rock, or
Coffee and TV - Blur, or
Coffee Club - Spandau Ballet, or
Coffee Girl - MK Ultra, or
Coffee Mug - The Descendents, or
Coffee Shop M*** - JFA - Punk, or
Kids on Coffee - The Descendents, or
One Cup of Coffee - Bob Marley, or
One More Cup of Coffee - Bob Dylan

And the coffee nutrition fun fact is that one 8 ounce cup of coffee has 2 calories and 0 fat. Woo-hoo, drink more coffee!!

Paul - 1 lime (2" diameter) and the meat of one medium coconut have a combined total of 1425.48 calories.
Comment by Paul King on November 12, 2009 at 1:14pm
Question: How many calories are there if you put the lime in the coconut and drink them both together?
Comment by Jodie Ellis on November 12, 2009 at 12:37pm
I love it! Great post Alyson - I am also reminded of Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' (I have always had a soft spot for Disney cartoons) and a song in that movie called "Les Poisson" - If my memory serves me correctly, the chef is working on some fried fish and some stuffed crab. Both sound delicious to me, but maybe I will let the nutrition facts help me decide... If you want to reminisce, you can find the song here:
