Hump Day! Risque Tunes For Your Midweek Blues 7/23/14

SweetJellyRollWho’s hungry? I must be thinking about food today so what he have for your Hump Day Blues is some good old-fashioned musical food porn. Food metaphors for sex have been used in songs since Edison recorded Bell singing to Watson about his long white bologna (this may or may not be true – no evidence exists). Spread out some cabbage, bananas, sugar, honey, jelly, wieners, peaches, lemons, pies, hot dogs, custards, rolls, buns, and more and you’ve got a salacious smorgasbord. I’m surprised there’s no blues song about kumquats. That word even looks dirty. It sounds filthy and it’s probably, ripe, sweet and juicy waiting for you to take a bite.

Anyway, your Hump Day feature this week might whet your appetite, fill your sack, scramble your eggs, toss your salad, bake your beans, warm your wiener, roast your nuts, gravy your biscuits (hey now!)… alright, you get the picture.

First we have Lil Johnson looking for her Hot Dog Man. It sounds more like Lil Johnson was looking for Big Johnson, if you know what I mean.

Royal Southern Brotherhood is a recent band carrying the hokum flag forward with a song from their first album. Cyril Neville wants some of that sweet jelly donut but she ain’t sharin’, even after he took her to see Dr. John at Tipitina’s. Maybe he should try a Chocolate Angel instead.

Lastly we have the voluptuous and vivacious Candye Kane inviting you to eat it all night long. Her buffet offers large portions and the biggest jugs of milk around. Drink up boys.
