Weekend Cooking: A fruit trifle in music

 Yesterday I posted about a new feature where I am going share songs and artists that I love over the coming six months! Today, I thought I would play around with that concept a bit, and throw together a trifle of songs. We'll start with fruit inspired songs, then add some cake, and voila! A kind of fruit trifle! I could have added Cream by Prince too, or Sunshine of My Love by Cream.

It is interesting how many songs and artists there are who sing about food, or have song titles, or are named after food. We could have Spice Girls, or Meatloaf, silly songs or songs reminiscing about the tastes of home like Chicken Fried by Zac Brown. The possibilities are endless!

Anyway, let's get started with our trifle shall we. 

Lets start with Strawberry Fields Forever by the Beatles

And we'll move onto Raspberry Beret by Prince.

While, this song is called Black Lace by Agadoo, there's no doubt that it is a song about pineapple!

Let's head into the country and eat some Peaches, by The Presidents of the United States of America. 

How about some funky music with Wild Cherry

And finally Cake, in this case Cake by the Ocean by DNCE

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book reviews (novel, nonfiction), cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs, restaurant reviews, travel information, or fun food facts. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page.


  1. Ooooh love this concept! And a great way to both enjoy two things I love: food & music!! Good job.

    1. I have done it before, but it is fun to do it again!

  2. Funny coincidence: a couple of weeks ago I did a post on food in songs and my first two selections were exactly the same as yours: Strawberry Fields and Raspberry Beret! (Link: )

    Have a great week... mae at

    1. That is a coincidence! I did something similar years ago but at that time you couldn't find Prince's music so I wasn't able to include the video. I was relieved I could this time.

  3. What a fun post!Love the music & the trifle!

  4. What a fun theme!! I look forward to listening to some of these unknown songs later.

  5. Your post is very clever. Love how you put it together and I will be listening to the songs. Thanks for hosting and have a good week.

    1. Thanks Judee! Thanks for joining in each week!

  6. Love the fruit trifle! Which reminds me, I have made one...with spring about to burst here (we still have snow in the mountains) a trifle might be needed!

  7. Interesting idea to sing foods praises through music. Thanks for hosting weekend cooking. My post is Tasty and Easy Mother's Day Vegan Brunch Recipe Ideas. Warm regards, Nancy Andres at Colors 4 Health.

    1. I enjoyed your brunch ideas Nancy. Thanks for joining in.

  8. Hope all is well with you - I seem to have lost my cooking/writing mojo for the moment - hope it comes back. Cheers

  9. Finally! A low-calorie trifle! ;)
    I love the song Cake by the Ocean, but haven't delved too deeply into the double-entendres in the lyrics because then I might be too embarrassed to sing along.
