The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about being hungry. Do you have a favorite hunger song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, vote up the songs about hunger that you can't get enough of. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good hunger songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. 

Some of the songs below include "Hunger for the Great Light" by Dave Matthews Band, "Hungry Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran, and "Far From the Arms of Hunger" by Jackson Browne. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has hunger or hungry in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of either word. Second, the song is conceptually about hunger, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
