What's your favorite song to cook to?

Singing in the Kitchen

The Daily Meal recently posted a fun list, Best Songs to Bake To. And they have some good ones, which they've posted on Spotify if you'd like to download them. Here's the list:

  • I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) - The Four Tops
  • Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns In Bed - Kinky Friedman
  • Good Lovin' - The Young Rascals
  • Love You Madly - Cake
  • Stir It Up - Bob Marley & The Wailers
  • The Candy Man - Sammy Davis, Jr.
  • Pure Imagination - Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory Soundtrack
  • Midnight at the Oasis - Maria Muldaur
  • Strawberry Swing - Coldplay     
  • Candy Girl - New Edition
  • The Muffin Man - The Countdown Kids  
  • I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl - Nina Simone
  • Cookie Jar - Jack Johnson

Now my guess is that this list will differ according to age, taste, etc., but the concept is a lot of fun. So here's a weekend challenge - let us know what songs you like to cook to. We have a hands-down favorite - Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World (if you've never heard it, listen to this You Tube video - it will undeniably make you happy).  So feel free to participate, and we can create an EYB play list. And everyone have a happy weekend.
