* "Food, Glorious Food" from ''Theatre/{{Oliver}}'', the musical adaptation of ''Literature/OliverTwist''. A bunch of starving workhouse boys sing of having all the food they want.

* "Food, Glorious Food" from ''Theatre/{{Oliver}}'', the musical adaptation of ''Literature/OliverTwist''. A bunch of starving workhouse boys sing of having all the food they want. In this case, though, it's arguably serious, since the singers are starving and food is clearly something they greatly desire.

* From Private {{BEMANI}} Academy: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-w9sI1MqYXc "How to Cook Delicious Rice and the Effects of Eating Rice"]] ([[LongTitle also known as simply "Okometal" or "Rice Metal"]]). A heavy metal song that ''instructs you on how to cook rice.'' No really, the first verse is actual rice cooking instructions, and the refrain is about how awesome and nutritious rice is.

* Trip-hop duo [[Music/CiboMatto Cibo Matto]] toy with this trope in their 1996 album "Viva! La Woman". It's a food ConceptAlbum: Every single song is about food and named for food (except "Theme", which is still about it). Indeed, some are funny: "Know Your Chicken" (a pet chicken gets cooked?), "Birthday Cake" (a hippie mother makes a cake for her son, to his dismay). Most are artsy or poignant. Some are even subversive, such as the creepy, sensual cover of "[[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory The Candy Man]]". Their thesis? Featuring food in a song, if it doesn't instantly make it funny, at least makes it super-evocative.

* Comedy-metal band {{Music/Psychostick}}'s album "Sandwich" overuses this trope so much they included a spoken-word track called "Too Many Food" that does nothing but hang a lampshade on it.
-->'''One Guy:''' Do you guys realize there's like a ton of songs about food on this new CD?\\
'''Other Guy:''' Dude. What do you have against food?\\
'''One Guy:''' Don't get me wrong man: If food was a band, I'd be at every show. But, uh, don't you think we should write at least one song that would, you know, like... sell?\\
'''Other Guy:''' What if food was a band? [...] What would food play?\\
'''Third Guy:''' I don't know. A sandwich?\\
