besides the great Stones song 'Brown Sugar' was D'Angelo's 'Brown Sugar' in which he uses brown sugar as a metaphore for a woman that you explicitly find out is actually a metaphore for 'getting high off the love' for weed. pretty brilliant at the time, especially in R & B. i always wished he'd had a lyric about getting the munchies in the song. maybe for the remix...

Not related to recipes, but I still love Cibo Matto's 'Viva La Woman'... it has great lines relating to food:
"extra sugar, extra salt, extra oil and MSG... shut up and learn to eat"

There is no better music to listen to while cooking than Jonathan Schwartz's Sunday show. I always keep the radio on to his show when cooking a Sunday meal. A glass of red wine, the smell of garlic and onions in the air, and the Great American Songbook on the radio. What could be better?

Also, "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses is inspiring for holiday grocery shopping.

I think of family and friends when cooking so always lean towards songs that you can sing to, tell a story, folkie/country...Iris Dement,Shannon McNally, things like that. Happy Thanksgiving

Barbara Acklin's "Bake Me a Man" is my favorite dessert-making song.

that's quite annoying - the Mario Battali recipe "song."

the ultimate recipe song is Tool's "Die Eier von Satan" off of Ænema. they make a simple cookie recipe downright frightening.

This sounds like Hipster Sesame Street.

We only prepare food to to randomly set playlists. In time. Things get a little hectic when we have to chop parsnips to death metal though. Between the two of us we now only have four remaining fingers. C'est la vie!

the sound of silence,literally. not art or paul,but dead air time. i don't want the distracton of music, while preping a meal. and, i dont want ambient background elevator music,that i am going to ignore,either.

Cooking with Krishna Das - Hare Krishna starts with a slow chant - and speeds up. Great for peeling, cutting, and chopping vegetables. Humming along to Jai Jai, rocking with the drumbeats, makes cooking a spiritual experience, and creates great vegan food!

Matisyahu's "Light" is a GREAT cooking album. "Rabbi Mat" keeps me dancing around the kitchen. I go big, like braised pulled pork tacos (sorry Rabbi) and sauage and meatball marinara - stuff that takes a lot of prep and lot of time in the kitchen. It even makes the clean up fun and my wife and kids think I'm nuts, hoppin' and boppin' around the kitchen. They love my food though. Cheers!
