Milkshake by Kellis and Escape to New York Ticket Winners

Thank you to everyone who submitted witty and obscure suggestions for your favorite “song about food.” There were a surprising number drawn from Disney animation stories, a noteworthy suggestion of “Jammin’,” by Bob Markely (which is about music, but could also be about food, especially if you were singing it while you were making jam), and some personal stories about “Eat it!” And if you’re into lego animation, check out this clip of Ween’s controversial corporate jingle, “Where’d the Cheese Go,” commissioned and then rejected by Pizza Hut, but still getting seen by nearly a million people online.

But the winner is “gcola” for “Milkshake, by Kelis,” a very nice sample of food-metaphor imbued song lyrics from way back in 2003, whose video (shown above) “turned heads,” according to MTV.

Congrats, gcola.

And there’s still time to enter our MTK Festival giveaway, with more suggestions of “songs about food,” or by subscribing to Edible before Aug. 4.
