It's one of our most basic needs, so it’s only natural that musicians write songs about eating. This list ranks the best songs about eating and chewing according to your votes. However these eating songs aren't always necessarily about food. Often times eating is actually a metaphor for other things, be it sex, a nod to the rat race in a “dog eat dog” world, or a kiss-off phrase, like Bart Simpson taunting, “Eat my shorts!” This makes the subject of eating in a song ripe for interpretation, and this list of songs about eating covers the gauntlet when it comes to mastication-centric tunage.

 

Comedic singer “Weird Al” Yankovic had his break-out hit with “Eat It,” a parody of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It,” and definitely one of the most literal songs about eating on this list. Adam Sandler’s “Thanksgiving Song” was another hilarious comedy song about eating, this one about stuffing your face during the holidays.

 

Even The Beatles couldn’t resist penning a song about eating, listing a vast range of delectable confections in their “Savoy Truffle.”

 

“Dog Eat Dog” is such a popular phrase in songs that artists in nearly every music genre have written songs with that title, including Joni Mitchell, AC/DC, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Ted Nugent and De La Soul.
