  • You have to add a number 11 Joe Diffy's " Good Brown Gravy" a B side song but to funny!
  • That is a lot of coffee songs Jack, on my first cup of the day now.
  • Alyson,
    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

    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.
  • Question: How many calories are there if you put the lime in the coconut and drink them both together?
  • 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:
