Music to Get You Cookin’
Night Out: Franz Ferdinand
STILL can’t tap into your inner chef? Start blaring Franz Ferdinand’s 2004 hit, ‘Take Me Out.’ Someone will get the message.
Soul Food: Ray Charles
For dessert? Serve a dish of Ray Charles’ ‘It Should’ve Been Me,’ in which he croons about chowing down on ice cream and cake. The legendary performer and father of soul will make any sugary dessert even sweeter.
Foodie Funk: G. Love and Special Sauce
A meal isn’t complete without a pinch of G. Love and a dash of Special Sauce. Make a plate of pure soul food with the G. Love and Special Sauce track ‘Hot Cookin.’ (And when you eat too much? Throw on ‘Fatman’ and park yourself on a comfy couch.)
Couples Cuisine: Frank Sinatra
Preparing a romantic meal? Frank Sinatra is the secret ingredient to any dish for two. Try Frank’s ‘My Kind of Girl’ (‘She looks like an angel looks, she cooks like an angel cooks…’) For dinner mood music? Sample some of Frank’s greatest hits, including ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ and ‘The Way You Look Tonight.’
Italian Night: Billy Joel
Craving Italian fare? Billy Joel’s classic ‘Scenes from an Italian Restaurant’ will put you in a pasta-and-wine frame of mind. Blast some Billy and your homemade pasta dish will taste like a five-star meal on the town.
Culinary Kick-Start: Rolling Stones
If you can’t seem to get inspired in the kitchen, give the Stones’ ‘Start Me Up’ a spin. You’ll be slicing and dicing in no time. And if you’re in the middle of a cooking crisis, the Stones’ ‘Cook Cook Blues’ will pull you through any culinary roadblock.
